August 2013 Edition
With the new school year beginning, many Girl Scout Troops are coming together for their first Troop meeting of the new school year. Many are planning Troop activities, such as entrepreneurial programs, badges and trips. Here is a look at what the upcoming Troop season has to offer:
New Tools for Volunteers with the development of Girl Scout “Valley”
Mags&Munchies season is once again upon us starting October 1. With the Mags&Munchies Program, Troops can build skills and earn Troop funds to help support their Troop activities.
The Resource Room has many great resources for Troop Leaders looking for some new ideas to share with your Troop. You’ll find browsing files filled with ideas for your Troop, books for research and loan, ceremonial materials (candle logs, flags, CD’s), sport/ fun equipment and resource boxes with hands-on materials for your Troop to enjoy.
Are your Girl Scouts interested in earning their Gold Award? Have them look at this past June’s Gold Award Ceremony.
GirlFriends is a publication of Girl Scouts of Nassau County, Inc. which provides Girl Scouts in Nassau County the opportunity to hear about the outcome of past events, while also hearing about future events within the Nassau Council. Look for a new issue every six to eight weeks.
