GWF2012.jpgThe Girls World Forum 2012 will take place July 11-17 in Chicago. The focus of the GWF will be three of the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals: Ending hunger and poverty; Empowering girls;  and saving the planet.  Delegates will develop skills and networks to bring about change in their community and country. Each council is allowed to send two delegates. Delegates must be between the ages of 14-18, actively involved in the Girl Scout council, interested in the United Nations MDGs, and willing to implement a plan for change in their community. 
We are also seeking applications for a young (18-30) volunteer active in Girl Scouting willing to  chaperone girls and work with them upon returning home to implement plans in their community. Cost of the program is $650 per participant, which includes lodging, meals, programs, and transportation in Chicago. Interested girls and volunteers should contact Mary Anne Brutkiewicz to apply by February 15.

Tail-Wagger Treats is an intergenerational activity that involves kids, senior citizens and homeless dogs!  

Children under the supervision of troop leaders, will work with the residents in Assisted Living and / or Memory Care at Somerby in Mobile, AL, once a week, making and baking organic dog treats for the animals at the local humane shelters.  Together the kids and seniors will mix, roll out, cut, bake and bag cookies that our Assisted Living residents will deliver to the Shelter once a month.  This is an ongoing project that we hope will never end: it is a win-win opportunity for our children, our seniors and our local shelters.  It's a whole lot of fun too!

Troops can sign up for one Saturday morning of their choice for an hour of baking.  We can have two groups of 6 girls baking and rolling at the same time as long as there is 2 adults with each group.   

 The fun begins at 10 am, and 1 hour should be plenty of time.

 Contact Sue Williams SUM 804 for more info or to sign up your troop. You can reach me at suefwilliams@msn.com or at 251-661-2810.

SOUTHPORT, UNITED KINGDOM - JULY 27: Stacy Lew...

Image via Wikipedia

LPGA 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 dreams. The LPGA is providing pizza (yum!) and a special guest speaker, Stacy Lewis.
 
If you don't know who Stacy Lewis is, you'll want to get to know her.
 
Not just because Stacy has been the best amateur player in the country over the past 2 years, or because she was the 2007 NCAA champion, or even because she has won 12 tournaments at the collegiate level while putting the University of Arkansas' women's golf program on the map.
 
It isn't because in her last event as an amateur, at the prestigious Curtis Cup held at the Old Course at St. Andrews, Stacy became the first person in the 76 year history of the Curtis Cup to post a 5 - 0 record while leading her US team to an historic victory. And it isn't because in her first tournament as a professional at the US Open 2008, the most prestigious of majors, she lead the star-studded field after the 3rd round and played in the final group with Paula Creamer, where she managed to finish third.
        
You'll want to meet Stacy Lewis because she is the best story in women's golf due to the things she's overcome in order to just play golf again.   7.5 years in a back brace and back surgery, after which she wasn't sure she would even be able to walk, let alone swing a golf club again.
 
You won't be able to help but like Stacy because she's earned everything she's ever won, and then some. She embodies those values that we most cherish: fiercely competitive yet considerate, tremendously talented yet seeks betterment through hard work, intelligent without being condescending, confident without being self absorbed and incredibly irrepressible no matter what obstacles are before her. In many respects, Stacy Lewis is who we would like to be as Girl Scouts.

And, if you aren't convinced yet, you can always come for the pizza... (PS - we're just kidding about that!)
