To commemorate the 100 Anniversary, Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama invites troops to make a quilt block that illustrates a special activity (ex. service project) or Girl Scout heritage.The quilt blocks will be used to make as many queen-size quilts as possible.They will be displayed at Council events during the Centennial Celebration.

Please follow the guidelines listed below.

  • 9 ½ X 9 ½ block of bleached muslin (available at fabric shops)
  • Leave ¼ inch border on all sides for seams
  • Please use a suitable medium in making the quilt block (no glue-on items such as sequins, glitter, foam cut-outs, pom-poms, buttons, religious symbols, etc.)

Runners in the Thin Mint Sprint will need a drink of water -- and we know just the Girl Scouts to hand it to them: YOU!

Get to the park nice and early at 7 a.m. and fill up water cups, hand them to runners on the course, and cheer them on...the runners really appreciate it!

You will be done by 9:30 a.m., then it's time to enjoy the fun at the Health Expo (arts & crafts, jumpies, and more.).

Ask your troop leader/advisor to contact Mary Anne Brutkiewicz at 800.239.6636, ext. 1202 to volunteer to join the fun!


pink-princess.jpgWe introduced the Pink Princesses Patch Program November 4.  This patch program was developed by a high school girl in Baldwin county.  She feels very passionate about teaching girls to stand up for their beliefs, and work on ways to resist pressure to behave in ways that contradict their beliefs or violate their individuality.   The program encourages girls to model their good character and independence for all to see!  I think we can all benefit from those lessons, while having fun!

 

Thanks to a Girl Scout supporter, we are able to offer the first 200 girls that complete this program a free patch!  (If you need to have the patches mailed, you will need to pay for shipping charges.)  Ask your parent or troop leader to check this out!

Service Unit 914 invites you to a Halloween Festival Thursday, October 29, 6 - 8 p.m. at Dalraida United Methodist Church in Montgomery.  Wear your favorite costume and join the fun! Each troop in Service Unit 914 is hosting a game! Win prizes and candy. Hot dogs, chips and drink will be available for purchase at a cheap price.

 

The "dead"line for registration is Friday, October 23.  E-mail jsbradley@knology.net with the number of girls from your troop.

Siblings may attend, but must be accompanied by the parent who must stay for the event. No non-family members please.

 

Help us fight hunger!  Each Girl Scout is encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item. The Girl Scout with the most food by weight will win a trophy. For every 10 lbs of food, the Girl Scout will receive a raffle ticket for door prizes.

sonia.jpgHi, my name is Kayleigh S.  I'm an Ambassador Girl Scout with Troop 8493. I am asking for support from my fellow Girl Scouts to help me in a service project, called Nurses, Infants, Community United (NICU). This program supports The Children's Miracle Network, that helps preemie babies, and helps soothe the troubled times for the babies' families. I am asking the Girl Scouts because I know that the girls have loving and caring hearts and would love to help the babies and their caregivers for our local hospitals.

 

Your donations would brighten their days. The babies are not able to visit their mothers so much, so the nurses love to take pictures and print them out and give it to the worried mothers. The babies also listen to nice relaxing music to help them sleep.  They often have to change the babies' blankets and they tend to run out of fresh ones in one day's time.  They use expo markers to constantly update the boards with the babies' info for the parents and loved ones.

 

Some of the items needed are: new digital cameras, blankets, CD players and relaxing CD's, photo paper, and expo markers. 

 

Your support is greatly appreciated!!  We will be taking donations through November 15, 2009.  Please set up a box within your troop and items collected can be dropped off by your leaders at your local Girl Scout office. 

 

If you have any questions e-mail me at: kkaycat321@yahoo.com

 

Thanks again,

Kayleigh

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. 

 

In the picture from left to right: (Standing) Victoria, Olivia, Katelyn and Claire (Squatting) Kassandra, Lilly, Rachel, Keely, Mrs. Jackie, Ashleigh and Alyssa.

There are many veterans who are hospitalized, and they are of all ages. Some do not have families, and getting a card from you or your troop would mean so much! Cards for any holiday are welcome. The link below provides guidelines and dates.

This is something you can easily do at a meeting or at home and will provide comfort, support and appreciation for the men and women who have served our country. Here's the link:
