Auction Proceeds Donation News!

As GE veterans know, proceeds from our auctions support our Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts camps, in particular, and Girl Scouting in general.  (Look on the website's auction page for more details: go to and scroll to the bottom for a summary of past donations.)

The GE committee consults with GSEM staff as to the needs we can help fill, and makes an earmarked donation.  This year's donation of $1,250.00 will support the purchase of ceiling fans/lights for the Theatre at Camp Wabasso, home of the Great Escape.  Wabasso in summer is a residential camp for Girl Scouts, specializing in horse, travel and drama programs (in addition to traditional camp activities such as swimming, boating, and crafts.)  The new fans will make the Theatre a more useful space for all users.

Any Minute Now...

We had our spring committee meeting last night, and assigned workshop times and spaces.  There will be 29 (maybe 30!) workshop choices for you this year.  As soon as we get all that up on the website, registration will be open and you can sign up. 

 Remember, if you "Earlybird" (register before August 1st) you will save $10.00 over the regular price of $55.00.  Yes, we kept the price the same this year! 

And we discussed which camp improvement project we are going to support with a donation from the auction proceeds.  That too will be revealed; watch this site!  In the meantime, we found another way to support girls and Girl Scouting; every girl who comes to GSEM's "One If By Land, Two If By Sea" destination  will find a Great Escape tote bag on her Mass Maritime dorm bed, filled with swaps, a water bottle and information.
