Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama: March 2009 Archives

8547.jpgGirl Scout Brownie Troop 8547 earned their "Animals" badge recently by learning how to take good care of pets.  The girls also gathered lots of old towels, blankets, grooming supplies and toys to take to the City of Mobile Animal Shelter as a service project. 

 

At the animal shelter, Mrs. Jackie talked to the girls about what the animal shelter does, the importance of spaying and neutering, and the importance of taking care of pets.  She also gave the girls cat and dog training CD's, stickers and shelter information.

Southern Growth wants your opinions on energy.  They have a quick, 4 question survey about your opinions on energy, including bio-energy -- the production of electricity and automotive fuel from plants, trees and waste. The results will be used in plans for addressing the South's energy issues.  To take the survey, click here or go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=xgpQOzvuM4KcqA309em_2btQ_3d_3d.

Feel free to forward the link to your friends who are interested in energy.  It's our Future -- let's express our opinions!

It's that special time of year again!  Time to honor the many accomplishments of our older girls at the Older Girl Recognition Banquet.  This special event will take place at the First United Methodist Church (note: the location has changed!) in Montgomery on March 28 at 4:30 p.m.  We will present many girl awards, have dinner and enjoy a special speaker, Dr. Susan Diamond.  Dr. Diamond, minister at First Christian Church, is a recent Women of Distinction honoree and an engaging speaker who will talk to girls about her leadership journey. Registration ends March 15, so send your registration in today.

The Corinne Jeannine Schillings Foundation is dedicated to preserving the memory of Corinne Schillings, a 26- year-old woman who lost her life in the Baltimore Water Taxi accident on March 6, 2004. Corinne was a Silver Award Girl Scout and a 1999 graduate of Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. Corinne received her undergraduate degree in foreign languages, majoring in Italian; she also studied Spanish, French, and Portuguese. She spent two semesters studying in Italy, first in Florence and then Milan. During her study abroad in Florence, Corinne met her future fiancé, Andrew Roccella, who also died in the accident. Corinne believed strongly in higher education for women and in learning about various cultures through language. The foundation will award scholarships and grants to deserving young women who reflect Corinne's aspirations, values, and enthusiasm for life.

 

Scholarship: The foundation will award scholarships to deserving young women who have earned the Girl Scout Gold or Silver Award and who plan to or are currently pursuing a college major or minor in foreign language. This scholarship is renewable.

 

Grant: The foundation will provide airfare for a Silver or Gold Award Girl Scout who plans to study abroad, regardless of her major/minor. It is not necessary to be a scholarship recipient to apply for this one-time grant; nor are scholarship recipients excluded from applying. This grant is not renewable.

 

Application Deadline: May 15

Girls who earned Cookie Camperships (by selling 600+ boxes of cookies) may register  starting March 23.  Camp registrations for all girls (including non-Girl Scouts) will be accepted starting March 30.   More information about all the different camp sessions may be found at the Camp page on our web site.

Registrations for all camp sessions, including girls with camperships, are on a first-come, first-served basis by postmark date at the Montgomery Service Center for Kamp Kiwanis and the Mobile Service Center for Camp Scoutshire Woods.  Walk-ins will not be accepted because camp registrations are processed by mail in order received to give every girl an equal opportunity to register for her first choice camp session.
