Leader Meeting Recap – 4/18/16

Thank you to those of you who were able to make the meeting on Monday night!  For those of you who were not, here is a recap.  If you would like more information or have questions, please contact the service unit team at rosemountvalleysum@gmail.com.

Gold Award Project – Rachael Nielsen from troop 51836 is looking for younger troops to help out with part of her Gold Award!  She will be placing a Little Free Library in a local park and is looking for some help to maintain and care for it.  If your troop is interested, please contact Rachael at 755825@apps.district196.org.

Bridging Planning Meeting – coming up on Monday, April 25th.  If you’d like to help plan our Bridging event, please RSVP to our meetup event.

Early Bird Registration – starts May 1st!  Leaders will receive an email soon with more details.

Leprechaun Days – Mark your calendars for the parade on Saturday, July 30!  We’re working on securing a spot for our girls to march again this year.

Troop Finance Reports – Reports are due June 30.  Leaders will receive an email soon with all the details.

Volunteers needed – We are always looking for caring, talented individuals to help us build our team and do great things for our girls.  We’re also looking for troops to host events. Hosting a service unit event is a great way to raise funds for your troop, earn hours towards a metal award, or just have fun with other girls in your area.  As we rebuild our service unit, we’re looking for ways to increase both volunteer engagement and girl connectedness.  If you are interested in helping out or hosting events, please contact the service unit team.

Rosie’s Girls – an upcoming day camp opportunity.  Please see the previous post on this page for details!

Patch programs – Looking for some fun things to keep your troop engaged over the summer?  Check out these patch programs based on some popular books!




Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards

Every year, girls across the country earn the highest awards in Girl Scouting – the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards.  Girls earn these awards by displaying leadership while engaged in a project that benefits their community.  Seniors and Ambassadors can earn the Gold Award, Cadettes can earn the Silver Award, and Juniors can earn the Bronze Award.  When a girl earns one of these awards, it shows that she has put a lot of time and dedication into her chosen project. Please visit the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards page for more information and valuable planning tools.

If your troop is working on one of these higher awards this year, and is hosting an event as part of the award, please let us know!  We’d love to have the girls come and speak about their projects at a leader meeting, or get the event up on the meetup calendar.  Contact the service unit leadership team for more information.
