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!

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

On this journey, an emphasis is also placed on media literacy and creative expression. All along the journey, you'll have opportunities to engage in a variety of arts, including performing, visual, culinary, and new media, to tell your story and take action to make the world a better place.

Daisy: 5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals!

Daisies learn just how much they can care for animals and for themselves--and just how good that makes them feel.

 

Brownie: A World of Girls

Stories teach Brownies clues about how they can create positive change in the world--change that affects girls.

 

Junior: aMUSE

Juniors learn just how many roles are open to them in the world and the possibilities those roles open for them.

 

Cadette: MEdia

Cadettes look for the ME in media and learn how they can shape media--for themselves, their community and the world.

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

inauguration.JPGHey girls! I just wanted to let y'all know about our latest big adventure! For those of you who don't know us, Haleigh and I are seniors at Satsuma High School, and also Girl Scouts from north Mobile County. This past week, we traveled to Washington, D.C. with a group from our school. We were with the Close Up program, a program that takes high school students to D.C. every year. This year, however, we were able to go to all kinds of Inaugural events! We saw President Obama being sworn in, we attended an Inaugural ball, and we went to the awesome concert on Sunday! (That's where this picture was taken.) The concert was amazing, because we got to see so many famous people, like Garth Brooks, Usher, James Taylor, Tom Hanks, Queen Latifah and Beyonce; as well as President Obama and Vice-President Biden. Being in Washington D.C. during this eventful time was so incredible; we were there to witness history -- along with three million other people! The crowds were insanely huge -- we couldn't move our arms we were packed so tight! The only thing worse than the crowds was the cold, and boy was it cold! Most days, it was in the 20's and 30's, sometimes with a wind chill in the teens! Also, Haleigh got to march in the Inaugural parade with Mobile's Azalea Trail Maids, which was a huge honor. For me though, one of the coolest things was meeting new people. We stayed in a hotel with several hundred other Close Up students from all over the country, (our roommates were from California!) and it was great to see how alike we were -- and how different. Close Up is a great program, so if you ever get an opportunity to participate in the program, go for it!

Hi everyone! Service Unit 807 from North Mobile county held its annual Camporee this past weekend at Scoutshire Woods. My troop planned and organized the whole event. It was awesome! Our theme was "Wild West Weekend."  We opened Friday night with a barn dance where we learned square dancing and line dancing. Saturday we enjoyed canoeing, archery, and horseback riding. We also had a "Lost Gold Mine" treasure hunt, and a terrific barbeque dinner!

Since all the girls in my troop will graduate from high school this year, this was our last camporee, so we wanted to make it a good one. It was a lot of work, but seeing all the little (and big) smiling faces made it all worthwhile. Over 120 girls and adults attended, and everyone agreed it was the best camporee ever!

Here are the girls from Junior Troop 8309 enjoying Camporee!Thumbnail image for DSC_3882.jpg
