Thinking Day 2005
Every year, on February 22, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides all over the world take a moment to send symbolic messages of friendship to their sisters in Girl Scouts and the World Association of Girl Guides. It is a special day in the Girl Scout year when we remember we are part of an international movement.
This year's World Thinking Day is all about FOOD! What a great opportunity for Girl Scouts to celebrate the cooking of various cultures and become aware of issues concerning food within our communities and beyond. Girls can discover how food is produced, where various foods come from, and what dishes are associated with particular countries. Think of how your own diet here in the U.S. has changed with the number of international foods you enjoy.
this year's World Thinking Day, Girl Scouts might also remember the millions
of people all over the world-including the United States-who are facing
hunger and malnutrition. Use the opportunity to think of ways to make
a difference in your own communities, either by engaging in Girl Scout
activities that involve food and nutrition or by volunteering in schools

WHO WE ARE
Girl Scouts of the Huron Valley Council provides enriching programs and experiences for ALL GIRLS ages 5 through 17 who live in Washtenaw, Monroe, Livingston and parts of Oakland and Wayne counties. There are many opportunities for interested adults and organizations to get involved as well.
As Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship and power of girls together. GSHVC offers age-appropriate programs, activities and events in math and science, technology, sports, community service, camping, adventure and travel, and more.
While most girls join a troop (a group of girls with designated leadership that meets regularly), other Girl Scouts register as individuals, complete Girl Scout activities and take part in Council-sponsored programs. You don't have to be a Girl Scout to participate in Girl Scout camp; you simply pay an additional $10 registration fee. And GSHVC offers programs for Girl Scouts and their families, as well.
99 percent of adults in Girl Scouting are volunteers. Commitments can be for only a few
hours or for as many as you have available and can be short term or
