911 Operators are truly unsung heroes -- we never see them, but they save lives every day!

Brownie Troop 8547 from Theodore is collecting letters, posters and drawings that thank or appreciate (or even telling a personal story) the 911 Operators in our council area.  They would like to get something from as many Girl Scout Troops as possible to let these heroes know they are appreciated.  Please send a note identifying your troop (and a troop photo, if you wish).  The items will be sent to Emergency Services Offices throughout our council to show our appreciation for all they do!

Your troop can even recruit a school to participate!  Nan Gray Elementary and St. Vincent School are joining in the fun.

Contact: Tracy Wilson, 251-445-6932
Deadline for receipt of all letters, posters and drawings: April 1
Mail to:  Mobile County EMS, Attn: Tracy Wilson, 7921-C Tanner Williams Rd, Mobile, AL  36608
