Gluten Free Orders Due September 27

The 2016 Gluten Free Cookie Program
Yay! Gluten Free Trios are coming back!
Once again, the demand for gluten free options in our cookies increased last year and we are bringing back the gluten free Trios cookie.
  
In order to participate, your Troop order needs to be submitted by September 27.  Parents, make sure you communicate with your Troop Leader or Cookie Chair as to how many packages of gluten free Trios your Girl Scout estimates needing. Gluten Free Trios will be delivered with your regular cookie orders at the end of January.

Troop Leaders or Cookie Chairs, please submit your orders here!  Only one order per troop.  If you need more information, read details below.
