So Much to Do In January
There's a lot going on this month, and you won't want to miss out on any of it!
The Camporee deadline is upon us! Return all forms electronically to Camporee2015@att.net by January 20th. Submit payment and a hard copy of all forms to the Camporee Registrar, Lisa Starr. See the registration form for more details.
All participants must provide the Camporee Director with a completed health history form (youth and adults). You ONLY need to complete the FIRST PAGE of the form. You DO NOT need to get a physical or a physicians signature. Both youth and adult health history forms are provided below.
All participants must be registered. Adults must have a current background check through the Citrus Council. Unregistered scouts or adults will not be allowed to attend.
Cookie orders are in full swing! Initial orders have already been submitted and will be available on February 4th ath Greyhound Race Track. If you haven't yet, make sure you've...
Reorders will available throughout the sales. The reorder dates will be Monday 2/9, Monday 2/16, and Monday 2/23. Please have your orders in to Jerri-Michelle by 5:00 pm. The pickup dates will be Thursday 2/12,Thursday 2/19, and Thursday 2/26.
Troop finance reports are due by the end of the month. They will be submitted electronically and must be accompanied with a copy of December's bank account statement. Finance reports are mandatory.
Hello, troop leaders and cookie chairs!
By now, I imagine everyone is happily selling cookies! Just as a friendly reminder, sales should not have started until Friday, January 2nd. Selling before that date undermines the efforts of all the girls who waited, and we want everyone to start out on the same footing!
As you begin getting your initial orders from the girls, please enter them into SNAP. For those who are not as familiar with the system, here are some step-by-step directions for you:
All initial orders are due to me by January 13th. You need to turn in your Troop Order and Report Form (T-4) (first two copies), along with all of your signedParent Permission Forms and your Volunteer Position Agreement (if you haven't turned that in already). You will have two options with regard to where/when you turn in your paperwork. Lisa Starr is a troop leader/cookie chair who lives in Viera, and she has generously agreed to allow people to turn in their paperwork to her if you live in that area. Her address is 1255 Dromin Lane, 32940. She is in the Capron Ridge subdivision off of Viera Blvd. If you choose to turn your paperwork in to her, you will need to have it in by January 12th, since I will be at her house that afternoon to pick it up. Otherwise, you will need to bring your paperwork to my house. I live in Eau Gallie near Westshore Jr/Sr High School - my address is 195 Lynn Ave, 32935. I will have a big plastic bin right outside my front door in which you can leave your paperwork. It needs to be in no later than January 13th to be entered into the initial order!
Also, there have been several questions about the additional order forms on the website. Since most people at Council have been on vacation, I have not been able to get an answer to this question. In the meantime, I have scanned in the order form and can email extras to anyone who would like them, or if you want to make arrangements to come by my house, you can pick up extra original hard copies.
Please let me know if you have any questions or are still having difficulty logging into SNAP. Stay tuned for more information regarding cookie booths - that will be coming soon!
Hello, troop leaders!
As promised at the last service unit meeting, here are the links to sign up for cookie training. Please sign up for the one you would like to attend. I am offering three options, because this is a very busy time of year and I know one option doesn’t fit all. If you absolutely cannot make any of these three trainings, please let me know.
Tuesday, 12/9/14, 6:30-8:30 PM (limited to 25 people) – Ascension Catholic Community, Buescher Center, room 410
Thursday, 12/11/14, 6:30-8:30 PM – Ascension Catholic Community, Buescher Center, room 411
Saturday, 12/13/14, 9:00 – 11:00 AM (limited to 25 people) – Ascension Catholic Community, Buescher Center, room 410
Please let me know if you have any questions, or if the links don’t work. I’ll have lots of info and stuff for you at the training, so we can kick this cookie season off with a bang!
Thanks so much – I look forward to seeing you and meeting those of you whom I have not yet met. J
Making a Difference Day
On November 9th, Harbour City held its first Making a Difference Day at Suntree United Methodist. Clothing, toys, books, toiletries, and so much more were available for Girl Scouts and their families to choose from for free. 108 gift bags were decorated by troops and handed out to the Girl Scouts who attended.
The girls who came were very excited and able to choose from a larg variety of items thanks to the collaborative efforts of THREE service units working together: Voyager, Harbour City, and Manatee Shores.
The leftover items went to some of the following: a troop that is doing a service project with socks and toiletries, Toys for Tots, Goodwill, Manatee Service Unit, VA Homeless Unit, the Suntree Library, and a school library.
