Cookie season is when Girl Scouts are most visible. Troops are often questioned about how to join Girl Scouts during booth sales. Spreading the word was never easier. Every troop will have buttons to wear, dual-sided business cards to pass out and a sign featuring a number to text for more information. Thank you for helping to spread the word as your troop experiences the practical side of financial literacy. Questions? Contact Camille email@example.com

VOLUNTEER ADULT AWARDS – DEADLINE COMING SOON!
Has an adult volunteer really gone the extra mile in serving girls, fellow adults, the needs of the council, or the movement overall? Recognize those tremendous efforts by submitting a nomination for an adult award! There are many different kinds of awards, some of which can be approved and handed out at the Service Unit level, and some of which require applications to be sent to the council. Nominations for awards should be in recognition of efforts during the 2014-15 Girl Scout year. All information can be found in the Adult Awards Guide. Additionally, we have created a version of the Nomination and Endorsement forms that can be filled out online and printed, to make the nomination process a little easier.
Any applications that require submission to the council must be received by February 19, 2016. For questions, please contact Melissa Baffa at firstname.lastname@example.org
