Do you like to travel? How about learning new skills? Then Girl Scouts Destinations are for you! These programs for Girl Scouts all over the U.S. offer girls the opportunity to travel to other places, learn new skills, and meet many new people. Last year, GSSA members traveled to California and Wyoming. Where will you go? 

Check out the website: www.girlscouts.org/forgirls/travel/destinations/. Please note that the deadline to submit final applications to council is November 18. Applications should be sent to: Mary Anne Brutkiewicz (mbrutkiewicz@girlscoutssa.org ).

 


Texas_180x365.gifGirl Scouts of the USA's National Convention is coming up in November, and we want our girls to be part of the fun by attending the GS Leadership Institute.  This event, which is just for girls and is part of the convention, will take place in Houston, Texas, on November 9-13, 2011. From ruling the world to space travel - past, present and future, 1200 girls 13 and older will hear from world-renowned leaders and innovators and gain hands-on experience with cutting-edge technology and professionals. Opportunities to market themselves, track products through development and marketing, and connect with Girl Scouts from across the country will abound. Girls will express why they love Girl Scouts and celebrate the movement's 100th birthday.

This event is open to all Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts in our council's jurisdiction. While official information on hotels, etc., is not available yet from GSUSA, we estimate that the cost to attend this event will be $950 for girls and $1,050 for adults (because their registration fee is higher).  This fee includes airfare, lodging (based on four girls to each room), breakfast and entry fees to the Leadership Institute.  Other meals and expenses will be covered by the attendees. GSSA will provide chaperones for the event, so girls may travel without a parent or guardian.

There are financial assistance funds available from GSUSA for this event, but we do not know yet what the application process will entail. Girls may also use cookie bucks to offset the costs, as well.

If you are interested in attending, please e-mail Karlyn Edmonds.  Please note, we are only allowed by GSUSA to take ten girls to this event, so space is limited.

GS_100TH_burst400px.jpgHelp us celebrate the 100th anniversary with a commemorative cookbook

Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama is launching a fun project to honor the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts.  We are creating a special commemorative cookbook with recipes from volunteers, girls, friends of Girl Scouting and staff members. We hope this will be a wonderful way to promote Girl Scouts and to share the fun of cooking with our girls.

We hope to have the book published and in the office by Oct. 15 and distribution starting by the end of Oct. - just in time for holiday shopping!  Look for your chance to pre-order the book (and receive a special discount) later this summer.  The book will feature many recipes, including a special section with recipes from Girl Scouts. It also will feature artwork throughout designed by girls from our council.

Now, we need your help!  We need you to have your girls send in their design for our 100th anniversary cookbook cover design contest, and  we need your recipes.
