TurningEyes  ~ FIRST AID BADGE ~ 


The girls have been great at helping plan our training event for Juniors. I just sent out the sign up and already we have, two full nights of 23 on the 17th 28 on the 22nd. I planned to stop at 24 but I know a few will not make it so I' m going over just in case our girls are split over both nights. so we need 51 patches. I have our girls split between the nights...check with me please!!!

We are getting Huge POSITIVE feedback from this event.
   Our first night was a huge success!
I think we will have to pass this info on to our service unit so it stays in play. Great job girls, we did well!

We work great together as a team! Thanks MOMS!

Funny how that works. We will be talking cookies at our next meeting so plan to stay for the front end of meeting! Our Cooking Badge went great. We have 4 girls that were able to sleep over and work together to cook dinner...Breaded chicken  (from scratch) and french fries. We also had an awesome colorful salad with all the works. . For desert they made shakes. and Breakfast we made Pannakokens (oven Pancakes) with berries and whipped cream. Lots of fun the girls had a few reminders, thanks girls for being so respectful of our home and each other! For the girls that did not attend. If you work with your daughter on this badge, please let Katie or I know so we can get the badge once earned! P

Happy New Year!

We started out the year by working on a new patch, Follow Me Girls, which covers the history of Girl Scouting. The girls did a great job answering questions about Juliette Gordon Low, and some GS history at our last meeting (1/2/12). We'll get back to this patch at some future meetings, and do some more fun stuff like learning Morse Code! This patch also applies to the 100th Year Anniversary Patch. 

Sweetheart Dance

The Daddy-Daughter dance has changed a bit this year. It is now scheduled for February 19th. More details to follow!

I NEED ALL MONIES YOU HAVE COLLECTED BY Tuesday FEBRUARY 12.  (This does not mean you have to have sold all your boxes:)  I just need all the money you have collected thus far to be deposited to the bank for the ACH pilot we are a part of, they are making an automatic withdrawal from our account.  

Reminder:  Girls get incentives for boxes donated this year as well, so you just collect the money, keep a tally (DO NOT HOLD ANY BOXES), and we will donate to the troops.  $20 gets you five boxes!!  And people are always welcome to just donate money to our troop, so keep a tally of that as well.

One More thought ~ Remember the Me & My Gal Camp if people ask... what are you planning on doing with your cookie money you earn.

It's an overnight with Me * My Mom at our Girl Scout camp in Elk River!


State Capital Tour:  Tuesday, February 26th 4pm, Shari and I will pick all girls up from school, and head to Capital.  We will have snacks on the way, and then have dinner afterwards together.  Please send a note/email to teachers that day giving us permission to take your girls!  ETA back home 8:30?  All girls attending! :)  Kari let me know if you still want to go!

Q & A

Did you know you leader earned an award this year! COOL!

Shari Grundy receives Girl Scout Honor!  

Centennial Volunteer,

Girl Scouts of River Valleys Centennial celebrations are now part of history. The scale and success of River Valleys’ events could not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of many volunteers.  We saved 6,000,000 dollars in cleanup costs in efforts. This year’s annual meeting will include reflection on the 100th Anniversary events and would not be complete without official recognition of the volunteers’ many contributions.

It is my great pleasure to inform you that as a result of your personal contributions to the celebrations you have been nominated and received a GSUSA appreciation Pin , for work on Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin Valleys Centennial events.  Nomination recommendations was approved by board of Directors and recognized at the River Valleys’ Annual Meeting held this past Saturday, January 26, 2013. Highlights were noted of your…service and passion for Girl Scouting. Shari was nominated by Tiana Woitas a GSRV CTAP Regional Support staff who directly supported 50 volunteers. Tiana worked alongside Shari with her efforts to make our Rivers Bend Centennial Celebration a Huge success,

…I’ll let you read it J

From the Speaker Darby Nelson and the CEO of Girl Scouts Linda Keene to the staff and volunteers of both Champlin and Brooklyn Park it still took Girl Scouts to make this day happen. Such an honor to be recognized amongst so many volunteers such a huge event!

If you are unable to attend, other arrangements will certainly be made to get your award and gift to you.

Please accept my sincere congratulations on your receiving the GSUSA award one of GSUSA’s most prestigious awards.
