Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama: August 2008 Archives

This week Junior Girl Scout Aliyah, from Troop 9041, would like to thank all of the parents in her troop who help with activities. 


Each week on "Thankful Thursday" we invite you to join us in highlighting the work of special individuals who make a difference in Girl Scouting.

This week we would like to thank Alison Simonton for spending over a week looking at two different software packages that we would use with volunteers.  We appreciate your time and great advice. 


Each week on "Thankful Thursday" we invite you to join us in highlighting the work of these individuals.

What are you thankful for? That special volunteer who goes the extra mile every time you need her or the business owner who always buys that extra case of cookies?  Now, you have the opportunity to put the spotlight on extra special people like this!
This week, the council would like to thank volunteer Liz Carnahan for taking on the tedious task of data entry.  She really helped us meet a deadline for membership registrations!

After hearing about this, Junior Troop 8380 decided to conduct several uniform drives this year to help replenish the closet.  This drive, among other things, will count toward their Bronze Award and they need your help.  As your child returns to school this month, please bring their old uniforms to either the Montgomery or Mobile service centers.  Staff will make sure they get to the troop.  Donations can be dropped off at Spanish Fort United Methodist Church (just mention they are for the Girl Scout drive).


 Items needed are:

·         Uniform bottoms in Khaki or Navy Blue

·         Uniform tops in White or Navy Blue

·         Back packs

·         Lunch boxes

·         Coats and Sweaters

·         School Supplies (paper, pencil, notebooks, etc.)


If you have any questions, please contact Alicia Spencer.
