Community Service: May 2009 Archives

Spring and the closing of the school year is a very busy time for everybody, including the Girl Scouts.  Many girls are in the process of finishing awards and want to be recognized for their hard work and dedication to making their community a better place.  Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama is very proud of all of these young ladies and want to see them complete their awards successfully within the required time frame.  Please keep the following deadlines in mind:

·         Bronze Awards must be completed and all paperwork submitted to the council before September 30 of the girl's 7th grade year

·         Silver awards must be completed and approved by the council before September 30 of the 10th grade year

·         Gold Awards must be completed and approved by the council before September 30 of the calendar year the girl graduates or turns 18.

 

Although we do not approve Bronze Awards, girls are required to submit them to the council.  Please make sure that the girls fill out their planners completely in their own words.

 

Please keep in mind that Silver awards must be approved by the council before awarding them.  Gold awards must be approved by a committee and the council before planning the awards ceremony.  The council asks that paperwork on these awards be submitted two months ahead of the awards ceremony. This is to leave ample time in case the girl has to revise or make additions to her project.  Should this present a problem, please contact Mary Anne Brutkiewicz for advice at 800-239-6636, ext: 1202.

Congratulations to Jessica J. of Troop 8455 in Semmes! Jessica is the recipient of this year's Goodwill Easter Seals Campership.  Jessica collected the most (32) bags of used clothing and household items in the "Good Samaritan" program.   She plans to use her campership to attend the Kayak Expedition at Scoutshire Woods.

 

Thanks to Goodwill Easter Seals for making  this program possible and to all of the girls who participated in this year's drive. Participants will receive a patch and gift certificates to the Goodwill Easter Seals stores.

 

This program was only available in 8 counties this year (Mobile, Baldwin, Washington, Escambia, Conecuh, Clarke, Choctaw and Monroe).  If you have any contacts for the Goodwill Easter Seals in your county, please contact Mary Anne Brutkiewicz at 251.344.3330, ext: 1202.
