World Thinking Day 2005
Food for All Ages and Cultures

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.

While celebrating 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 and communities


Recycling for Camp Linden Water System

Centralized Office Supply (COS), a WBENC-certified, woman-owned business will be purchasing empty printer cartridges and cell-phones from the Girl Scouts of the Huron Valley Council over the next year with the proceeds designated to building an upgraded water system for Camp Linden. The water system will support flush toilets and showers.

Some troops have already begun to collect empty printer cartridges and used cell-phones. We are thrilled that this fund-raising initiative is being met with great enthusiasm!

If you need replacement materials for your Troop's use throughout the year, simply order them on COS's website at centralizedofficesupply.com. They will be happy to send you new materials on the Council's behalf. Remember to include all requested contact information. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel freee to e-mail COS at jlb@centralizedofficesupply.com or call them at (800) 848-0617. If you have any questions regarding Camp Linden or Huron Valley, please contact Fund Development at (734) 971-8800.

Thank you for your participation!


Cabins Completed at Camp Crawford

The cost will be $50/weekend night and $40/mid-week night. Click here for pictures of cabins. (Be patient, it may take a minute or two to download ... but its worth the wait).


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.

Daisy Girl Scouts Kindergarten
Brownie Girl Scouts Grades 1-3
Junior Girl Scouts Grades 4-6
Cadette Girl Scouts Grades 7-9
Senior Girl Scouts Grades 10-12

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.

Approximately 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 long term.

Please contact us if you are interested in supporting Girl Scouts as a volunteer or with a donation.
