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.

We want to make sure your troops can access the information they need on the Trophy Nut website.  To do this, Service Unit Fall Product Chairs should be sure to remove the "Check" from the  Troop has Read Only Access Box when they create new troops.  If a leader calls and states she can enter only one girl, then the Troop has Read Only Access Box is checked and must be corrected by the Service Unit Fall Product Chair, so that she can enter the proper information.  If you make sure to take this simple step now, you can avoid lots of phone calls later!

The 19th annual Mobile Bay area celebration of Earth Day is inspired by the worldwide Earth Day Network, which promotes environmental citizenship and steers environmental awareness around the world.

 

The Girl Scouts of Service Unit 824 will hand out information on how to "go green" and give out Green Ribbon Pins to remind people to go green.


There will also be environmental displays and exhibits, educational activities for children and adults plus live music and art. Fun for the entire family! Bring computers, old TV's, other electronics, used cooking oil and other aluminum, plastic and cardboard items for recycling.  

Service Unit 7 wants to thank Teri Eversole for volunteering her time to supervise horses for us at camporee. We couldn't have done it without her!  The council would like to thank Tracey Nichols, Liz Carnahan, Wendy Kidd, Shirley Willis and Mary Staton for volunteering their time at Autumn Adventures at Kamp Kiwanis.

 

Once a month on "Thankful Thursday" we invite you to join us in highlighting the work of special individuals who make a difference in Girl Scouting.
