Through a special partnership with the Navistar LPGA Classic, girls and adults from across the council are invited to volunteer at this prestigious golf tournament, which attracts well-known female golfers from around the country to Prattville's Robert Trent Jones Golf Course.  Girl volunteers, ages 11-17, are needed for Saturday, Sept. 17, and Sunday, Sept. 18, to serve as standard bearers.  Each girl will be paired with a golfer, carry their insignia and will walk the course with them that day.  Since the golfers tee off at different times, beginning around 7 a.m., we will assign each girl to a specific tee time.  Please note that girls are required to be there about an hour prior to the tee off time and will be on the golf course for several hours.
 
Adults are also asked to volunteer.  Some may serve as standard bearers, while others will assist in other duties for Navistar, as assigned.
 
Prior to the event, girls and adults will be asked to attend (in person or via conference call) an hour-long training sometime in August prior to the event.  
 
The price to attend this event is $12 per person. Girl and adult volunteers will receive a Navistar  LPGA Dri-fit T-shirt, special 100th anniversary Girl Scout cap (to be worn at the event...we want them to know you're a Girl Scout!), Navistar baseball cap or visor, five tickets for use during any day of the event, light refreshments while they are working and a commemorative patch.
 
We are only allowed to have 50-60 girls/adults volunteer on Saturday and only 20-30 on Sunday, so be sure to register soon!

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.

DSC08611.JPGLPGA invites Girl Scouts to meet and greet some of the country's best women's golfers. Girls will participate in a putting clinic and spend time with the lady golfers, learning about the sport of Golf and fulfilling your dreams.

We'd like to offer a special thanks to volunteer Becky T. for putting together this fabulous program!

Lake Jacomo Reflection

Imagine a place where girls with physical disabilities can enjoy the resident camp experience - sleeping in a tent, singing around the campfire, swimming in a wheelchair-accessible pool, and, most importantly, forming friendships that last a lifetime. Now imagine a place where YOU make it all possible - bringing joy to these campers, learning what it takes to work in a disability-related field, and forming bonds that you will forever remember. That place is Juliette Low Camp, in beautiful Lake Jacomo, Missouri, where more than 100 girls with physical disabilities and their friends join together with 28 teen Girl Scouts, ages 15-18, from throughout the U.S. for an unforgettable experience.

During each camp session, you will provide the campers with the opportunity to enjoy swimming, songs, games and campfires. You will also assist/take care of the campers' dressing, feeding, personal care, and transportation around the camp (wheelchair power!). From opening day to the closing campfire, you will have the chance to provide a summer of memories for a special group of young girls.

Girl Scouts of NE KS & NW MO is currently recruiting camp counselors for their destinations event, and they need your help!  
  
Counselors should be at least 15 years old by July, 2011.
 
Anyone interested please contact Carol Solenberger, or send the application by e-mail or mail to the address below by January 31, 2011.

Matlock, Johnnie Cochran, Clarence Darrow, Perry Mason, John Grisham, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Hilary Rodham Clinton, Elizabeth Dole, Barack and Michelle Obama are famous (fictional and real) lawyers.

 

Lawyers have many options over the course of their careers. Besides private practice, they can become a prosecutor, government counsel, corporate in-house counsel, judge, arbitrator, law professor or politician. Legal training is good preparation for many non-legal jobs, such as corporate executive, government administrator, investment banker, entrepreneur or journalist.

 

Girl Scouts in middle school and high school can explore what it takes to be a lawyer with a young, female attorney.  A new series pathway focused on legal careers is starting, and we want you to shape this group.  June 22, you'll meet to decide:

What activities do you want to do?  How often do you want to meet?  How do you want to communicate?  What do you want to call yourselves?  Do you want to work on IP's?  Do you want to go on trips?

 

Get involved in this from the ground up by RSVP'ing by June 21 to Molly Smart at extension 1402.

 

Who: Cadette, Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts

When: 4 - 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 22

Where: Volunteer Center, Mobile

Cost: Free

RSVP by: June 21
