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!

Attention high school seniors! Planning on going to college? Your volunteer work could help you get a scholarship. The Junior League of Mobile is now accepting applications for their Young Woman Leadership Scholarship. This scholarship is available to young women in their senior year of high school and is available to one young woman in Mobile County and one in Baldwin County. The two scholarship recipients will be awarded a $1500 scholarship each.

 

Applicants should demonstrate a commitment to volunteering and community improvement, innovative and creative actions that reach out to and motivate others, commitment to continued education, and at least one year volunteer experience in addition to school related service requirements. This scholarship sounds perfect for a Girl Scout, who fulfills all of these requirements!

Here's an excerpt from a blog written by a lady who travels the world doing volunteer work.  She writes about one of our members!

"I love the fact that the Girls Scouts exist. I love the fact that there are girls being mentored out there, and because they are growing up confident, they are changing the world. I also really love that the Girl Scouts cross political and religious lines, and are a mix of girls from different backgrounds and beliefs. In a world where people can't seem to get along ..it's a good thing to see people-even kids-trying to find commonality instead of focusing exclusively on differences. This is a big theme of my blog-figuring out where to meet all the people I come across on my travels halfway, rather than insisting that they agree with me. (It's not easy!)

"I also heard about Maddie, a Girl Scout in Alabama who has taken the idea of leaving less of an imprint on the planet full steam ahead..by participating in a program in the States called, "Grow A Row". The idea is to grow a garden, and give over a certain amount to your local foodbank or similiar charity. Grow A Row is an idea whose time has come..when many people in the USA are going to bed hungry at night, don't have enough to feed their kids, and are turning to churches, misc non profits, and the foodstamp program to supplement their meager diets.

"I find Maddie's idea inspiring me to take my life -and any future gardening plans-to another level. Here she is, "just a kid", and she's already spending alot of her time thinking about people other than her. Alot of people don't even get around to even beginning to think like that until retirement.

"Kids are like that. They push us farther than we thought we could go. They open us up to new possibilities, and sometimes remind us of principles we promised we'd live by at some point but forgot. They help to keep us from falling into the cynical trap and move mountains to show us that, yes, change is possible."

Isn't that great!  You can read more about her adventures at true life planet
