Events: October 2008 Archives

I have a Brownie and a Junior Troop looking to trade a postcard with your state.  If possible could you forward this email to your troops and see if anyone is interested.  We are working on a project to trade a postcard with each state for Thinking Day.  When it's over we will be displaying our postcards at an event at our local mall to raise awareness of Girl Scouts in the community.  If you can help in any way it would be greatly appreciated.  If you are interested, e-mail

mobileintlfestival-ps.jpgOne of our many Council patches centers around the Mobile International Festival, being held on Nov. 22.  Girl Scouts attending the festival can earn many of the requirements for the International Friendship Patch available on our council's website. Girls advance diversity in a multicultural world by learning to appreciate the international cultures represented at the festival.  They also have a GREAT time watching dances, eating food and seeing craft demonstrations from around the world!

You can order tickets using this form:
