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!
We 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!

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.
Hi, 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: firstname.lastname@example.org
GO GIRL SCOUTS!!

Girl 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:VeteransCards.doc
Troop 9010 visited J.T. and Leanne at MIX 103 on Monday, January 19. The girls learned about the radio station and even got to talk on the air! In fact, they got to mention the cookie sale and our new cookie, the Dulche de Leche. They also learned that J.T. and Leanne play the music on the radio through the computer just like it is a big iPod. J.T. and Leanne told the girls they have a great job because they get to have special guests, like Taylor Swift, visit with them and because they get to do special events for worthy charities in the area, like the humane society and Children's Hopsital. J.T. told the girls that to prepare for a career in radio they should consider studying broadcast journalism in college. The girls enjoyed their visit and even got a CD recording of their radio broadcast premiere!
Do you have a special dance or presentation you developed for Thinking Day? We are looking for girls to share their special Thinking Day performances at the Annual Meeting! The meeting will be Saturday, April 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Montgomery.
If you are interested in auditioning, please send us an audition video, or let us know when your Thinking Day is and we'll try to visit in person. Because of time limitations only five to eight troops will be selected to perform. Performances should range from 2-3 minutes in length and can include a song, dance, poem, short story, play, etc. For more information, please contact Cheryl Miller at email@example.com 334.272.9164 ext: 2302.
