A halftime performance by Auburn Wheelchair Basketball and a post-game autograph session with the Women's Basketball team adds to the fun.

Have you seen Girl Scouts with a pin on the front of their vest or sash that says Cookie Activity with a year on it?  These pins aren't just for participating in Cookie sales -- these are for girls who get the most out of the Cookie Program by learning about these five steps:
  • Goal Setting
  • Decision Making
  • Money Management
  • People Skills
  • Business Ethics

Here's more information about the Cookie Pin requirements.  Talk with your leader or advisor if you want to earn this pin!
Help make a difference for kids in need

Montgomery's new One Place Family Justice Center, which helps victims of domestic violence (mostly women and children) during the critical time immediately after they seek a safe haven after becoming victims of crime, is requesting donations of new or gently used stuffed animals and books for its special children's room where kids can stay while their parent is seeking assistance.  The center has a goal that no child will leave without a something special to take with them and has asked Girl Scouts to assist in the collection effort.
 
Our girls have been eager to support the success of One Place, and one troop even decorated a beautiful Christmas tree for the children's room. If you or your troop would like to help, you may drop off your items at either the Montgomery or Mobile Service Centers.  They will be greatly appreciated by One Place and the children it serves.
