I would like to extend a great big thank you to the following ladies who
attended our first meeting. Thanks to Laurie Rodgers, Angela Truitt, Gayle
Brown, Lisa Woodley, Shirley Kelly and Anna Bryant. Though we were few in
numbers, we accomplished a great deal of work for the Service Unit for the
year. We have some exciting things planned! Join us at our next Leader
meeting and see what the fuss is all about!! Read on and learn about some of
the things that we have planned...

v This year we are aiming for the President’s Award, which is given according to the following criteria:
q Plan of work to include:
q Events done as a Service Unit, 3 per year
q Critical positions filled in the Service Unit
q Increase in Girl Scout membership and **attendance at leader meetings and trainings**
q A public relations event (non-council sponsored)
q A talk about Girl Scouts to a civic group
q Promote Girl Scouts by participating in a community event
q Annual reports must be turned in by the end of May from every Troop Leader
Every little bit of effort on everybody’s part will put us even closer to achieving the President’s Award for West Service Unit. Let’s make this a remarkable year!
