Events: May 2011 Archives

GS_ADVOC-NTWRK_servicemark.gifGirl Scouts of North-Central Alabama and Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama will induct a bi-partisan delegation of legislators into the Alabama Honorary Girl Scout Troop 1912 on Thursday, June 2.  The ceremony will take place on the floor of the Alabama House of Representatives (House Chamber) from 9 - 9:30 a.m.

In honor of Girl Scouts' 100th Anniversary, this honorary legislative troop is called Troop 1912 for the year Girl Scouting was founded. Troop 1912's purpose is to be the voice for girls in the legislature. We're excited to have a diverse group representing Alabama's girls.

The ceremony is open to the public, and we hope you'll join us for this momentous occasion.

Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama is launching a fun project to honor the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts.  We are creating a special commemorative cookbook with recipes from volunteers, girls, friends of Girl Scouting and staff members. We hope this will be a wonderful way to promote Girl Scouts and to share the fun of cooking with our girls.

We hope to have the book published and in the office by Oct. 15 and distribution starting by the end of Oct. - just in time for holiday shopping!  Look for your chance to pre-order the book (and receive a special discount) later this summer.  The book will feature many recipes, including a special section with recipes from Girl Scouts. It also will feature artwork throughout designed by girls from our council.

Now, we need your help!  We need you to have your girls send in their design for our 100th anniversary cookbook cover design contest, and  we need your recipes. 

To enter the Cookbook Cover Design Contest, please download the Entry Form and submit it with your drawing by July 15, 2011.

04082010_AJM.jpgIt's not too late to register to "Adopt A Distinguished Young Woman" for this year. Formerly known as Adopt an America's Junior Miss, this program allows Girl Scout troops to interact with contestants over the time that they are in Mobile for the national finals, June 12-25.

At this point, we still have 19 out of the 50 girls without troops. We want this to be a great experience for all of the girls. We've extended the deadline (again) until May 20, 2011.

If your troop can host, please contact Jeannie Napper at 251-344-3330, ext. 1202.

Check out the Be Your Best Self patch program. If your troop completes the patch program by June 12, your troop will be recognized in a special ceremony at one of the events.

Be sure when you turn in your Event Registration Form to list which states you would like to adopt. Keep in mind, 31 of the states have already been assigned. The young women who are coming are really impressive! See what great role models your girls can interact with if you participate in this program.

Still aren't sold? Look at the photos from last year's program, and we're sure you'll adopt a Distinguished Young Woman!
