Join in the Holiday Parade, A Corvallis Tradition
All Girl Scouts –
Come and join in the Corvallis Holiday Parade on Saturday night Nov. 30. Andrea, the leader of troop 20102 is coordinating the event and has an awesome idea for warm decorations as the theme is Hawaiian Holiday.
Please contact Andrea to RSVP and to get more information. The whole troop doesn’t need to attend but one parent is needed for each 6 girls. Andrea says that her troop is thinking to do a luau theme and umbrellas as palm trees to help stay dry . Other troops can build on that theme.
Please contact Andrea.
2014 Girl Scout Cookie Sale
The 2014 Girl Scout cookie sale is approaching fast. Every troop and group interested in participating in the sale need to have a cookie manager to help organize the troop cookie sales. All troop and group cookie sales managers and registered adults interested in helping with the cookie sale must attend the Cookie Sale workshop on December 9, 7 pm-8 pm at the First Congregational Church.
YOU can be a Girl Scout.
- Discover what you can do!
- Connect with friends and community!
- Take Action to make a difference in YOUR world.
All Girls, between ages 5 years and 17 years, can be a Girl Scout. Meet friends and have fun by joining a troop, participating in a short term program, attending a Girl Scout sponsored event, traveling with a travel group, or attending Girl Scout camp.
Adults, it is not too late to start your journey in Girl Scouts! You can work with a troop as a leader or adult helper, share your interest or talents with groups of girls, become involved in helping plan a Girl Scout event, work behind the scenes as part of an adult team, or help with day camp.

Discover, Connect, Take Action as an adult Girl Scout volunteer!
All Girl Scout adults (or those interested in becoming a volunteer) are invited to learn about Girl Scouting, meet with group and troop leaders, and help plan the Service Unit program.
This meeting replaces the "Leader Meetings" of the past so all adult Girl Scout volunteers have the opportunity to become more involved in Girl Scouts even though they can not commit to being a troop or group leader.
Come share the opportunity to connect with other volunteers. Each troop or group should have one or more representatives at this meeting. These meetings are held from 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. at the First Congregational Church, 4515 SW West Hills Rd.

Benton Service Unit Program Plan
Benton SU Tree Project:
As a service unit, troops have decided to donate some of their cookie troop money to support the Corvallis Community Garden Orchard at Avery Park. At the site 12 to 24 trees were planted at a estimated cost of $35 - $50 per tree. Native fruit trees were selected for the area (apple and pear). This is a great way to show the Corvallis community what Girl Scouts do with some of the money they earn selling Girl Scout cookies.
Benton Day Camp 2014
Day camp is planned and carried out by volunteers in the community. Without these volunteers day camp is not possible. Thank you to all our VOLUNTEERS!
Remember... we need many VOLUNTEERS to make Day Camp happen! We need your help. If you are interested in helping contact Sally.
