Letter From Anne Muller Concerning Girl Scout Duck Hunt

17 Jan 2007

Dear Folks,

You guys are doing amazing work! It really seems to be getting to them. So sorry for not participating sooner in this – lots of stuff…, but here’s what just happened:

THE SHORT OF IT:

CEO LYNN VINCENT OF ERRANT GIRL SCOUT CHAPTER WILL CALL OFF THE HUNT FUNDRAISER IF GSUSA REQUESTS IT. GSUSA IS GOING TO REQUEST IT. STATUS: PENDING

THE LONG OF IT:

Per Lane’s posts, I called Rae Schopp and left a message on her phone (she was out of town). She returned my call very early this morning and left the message that they had “tried” to stop it but to no avail. She said this chapter said they would have the hunt this year but not again in the future. She then left the number of Lynn Vincent 507-645-6604 the CEO of that particular chapter.

I called and spoke to Lynn and she repeated the story that they couldn’t call it off this year, but wouldn’t have the hunt again. She said they had raised 19,000 from this and that unless we could give them 19,000 to compensate, they would have no choice but to go through with it. After all, she said, hunting was a “cultural tradition” in that neck of the woods.

I suggested that she re-evaluate the financial impact this way: They would in fact be losing contributions for the many other chapters and the Girl Scouts of America (or USA) by going through with this, as they would all be blamed in the public mind. She paused and said that if they were asked to call it off by GSUSA, they WOULD! I said I’d call GSUSA right away to place the call.

Rae was there at the time, I thanked her for returning my call this morning and told her I had very good news for her. She almost fell over when I said they would call it off if she called them and requested it. I explained my financial rocket science to them J and she understood. She said she would get someone “higher up” than she and that she would call me in the afternoon.

Let’s hope and pray.

I’ll let you know right away if I hear anything one way or the other. Rae will call me this afternoon.

If we need to go to Plan B, we should tell GSUSA to save themselves a fortune in lost contributions by donating 19,000 to this errant chapter.

Best,
Anne
