2011: A Very Good Year!


The end of the year always provides the perfect opportunity to reflect upon the accomplishments of both individuals and organizations, and GSSA is no exception.  We feel that 2011 has definitely been a good year for Girl Scouting in southern Alabama, and we are eager to start 2012 - the Year of the Girl!  Before we say farewell to 2011, though, we want to share with you some of our council's accomplishments.  We think you might be impressed!

In 2011, our council's staff, with your support:

·         Increased membership across our 30 counties.  

·         Presented more than 65 council-wide program events, filling more than 6,500 slots for girls to attend programming.

·        Processed 1,532 volunteer applications, served 167 volunteers are fall kickoffs, certified 105 volunteers in camping, 18 in canoeing and 49 in first aid and CPR. Fielded thousands of questions and phone calls in an effort to assist our volunteers, parents and constituents   

·         Served 1,551 girls through our outreach programs who otherwise could not afford to participate in Girl Scouting.  To serve these girls, we implemented 13 grants, which provided programming in their communities.

We believe Girl Scouts made a difference in the lives of countless girls and their families in southern Alabama in 2011, and we certainly hope you agree. 

We are looking forward to another great year with you and all our Girl Scouts  in 2012!
