Girl Scout PSA
Hearts of Service
SERVICE UNIT MANAGER MESSAGE
I’d like to
welcome everyone in the Fanwood-Scotch Plains Girl Scouts
community to a fabulous new year of Girl Scouting!
this website often as we work to make this the go-to
location for all things FSPGS. Soon you’ll see our calendar
of meetings and events, product sales, deadlines, etc. If
you have something you’d like to post, please send it to me.
This includes flyers for GS events or activities. (If a girl
or troop is running the event, please have a girl send the
info to me.)
yet important, reminders as we kick off the 2013-2014 year:
Leader Meetings are where it’s at! Leaders get important
info and have the chance to discuss problems and
successes with other leaders at the same level -- Daisy,
Brownie, Junior, Cadette, Senior, Ambassador. Together,
you will find better ways to support the girls and each
other. Please come to every Leader Mtg or have someone
else from your troop attend and report back. You’ll
thank me later. This year we will include break-outs for
new Daisy leaders and special programs (usually before
meetings) such as “Camporee 101” and “Secrets to
Completing the End-of-Year Financial Form.” Please let
me know if you have ideas for other sessions.
a girl, adult or troop represents Girl Scouts in public,
they must be in GS attire: khaki bottom such as skirt,
pants, capris; white top; GS vest or sash (or pin,
scarf, etc. for adults). Troops also may wear matching
GS T-shirts or sweatshirts. Like any club or team, Girl
Scouts are representing not only themselves but a larger
organization when they are in public and should be
dressed appropriately and cohesively.
are welcome to attend Service Team or Leader Meetings to
share info on their projects, activities, fundraisers,
award projects, etc. The girls should contact me
directly; if it’s via email, I encourage them to copy
their leader or parent.
to sell cookies or nuts, register for dances or
participate in events such as fun days or camporee,
girls must be registered. Any adult with an official
troop function such as treasurer, cookie chair, camper
or chaperone to meet required girl: adult ratios also
must be registered as a GS Adult [Register]
AND a Girl Scout Volunteer [Volunteer].
for your interest in Fanwood-Scotch Plains Girl Scouts. I
look forward to a wonderful year in which we all put the
Girl first in Girl Scouting.

people at all times,

* The word "God" can be interpreted in
a number of ways, depending on one's spiritual beliefs. When
reciting the Girl Scout Promise, it is okay to replace the word
"God" with whatever word your spiritual beliefs dictate.
