The more tickets sold, the more money we'll earn for Girl Scout programs! Check the Girl Scouts of Alaska calendar for details about how to purchase tickets for this event. And, watch your email boxes for a reminder note.
We're excited to partner with the Rage City Roller Girls because they share values similar to Girl Scouts:
Rage City Roller Girl Values

- My name is Kathi Kline and I am a Girl Scout leader for two troop (2nd grade Brownies and 5th grade Juniors) in St. Louis, Missouri. I am looking to find a couple of troops that would be interested in possibly being pen pals! My Brownie troop has 13 girls and my Junior troop has 10.

Thank you, Kathi Kline.
