<![CDATA[Free Programs for Girls in Superior]]> http://girlscouts.le1.getliveedit.com/Blog/Region-2-Volunteer-Updates/Free-Programs-for-Girls-in-Superior/
   By Keri Lynn              (0) Comments

Troops in Superior: Did you know the City of Superior’s Environmental Services Division can partner with you for a program?  Their staff can bring these or other water-related activities to your troop meeting, or perhaps you’d like to set up a joint event with the other troops at your school--especially if you’re working on the Brownie WOW or Daisy Flower Garden Journey.  Options include:


  1. Water Cycle game . . . A fun, active game where you are the water droplet--roll the dice and learn where the water goes.
  2. Water cycle bracelets . . . Make a bracelet where each bead represents a water reservoir (lake, stream, ocean, etc.)
  3. Puppet show!  Themes such as keeping water clean and mercury bioaccumulation
  4. Make seed paper. . . Make paper with native plant seeds. Use the paper as you wish – bookmark, cards, etc. Then you can tear a piece off, plant it, and watch your seeds sprout!
  5. Wastewater treatment tour . . . Get behind the scenes to find out how sewage is treated.


Because of funding, these programs are only available to troops and groups based in Superior.  For more info or to set up a program, contact Ada Tse, Research Assistant, at 715-394-0392 x1018 or tsea@ci.superior.wi.us

<![CDATA[Volunteer Background Checks]]> http://girlscouts.le1.getliveedit.com/Blog/Region-2-Volunteer-Updates/Volunteer-Background-Checks/
   By Julie Bode              (0) Comments

The Lakes & Pines council is working hard to bring up to date all volunteer background checks.

All volunteers please complete a background check by going to our website gslakesandpines.org. On the homepage, click volunteer in the green bar. In the dropdown box, click: Lets Get Started.

All information to complete the background check is there. The background check fees are covered by the council and completely confidential.

If you have any questions please email or call Martha (218) 302-3186 or Shelley (218) 302-3187.

The only volunteers that do not need to have their background check are those who completed one in Oct. 2013 to present date.

Thank you so much for your help,
Shelley Murphy

   By Julie Bode              (0) Comments

Volunteers, here is a new resource that we hope will help you partner with your girls to create and carry out a Take Action Project, whether as part of a Journey or a Bronze, Silver, or Gold Award.  As you know, we believe in giving girls the opportunity to take the lead in creating a project that is close to their hearts, using their creativity to find a lasting solution to a problem, and carrying out the steps to complete the project.  What does this process look like for our youngest girls?  How can we challenge our older girls?  How can we convert an idea for a temporary help to a lasting solution?  Check out this flyer for ideas!
