    Hello Girls Scouts!

    Congratulations to all our girls, parents, and volunteers for another great cookie season! Your hard work, dedication, and ingenuity are an inspiration. Everyone loved having their Lemonades and Thanks-a-Lots back and Mother Nature was kind to us this year!

    Cookie season is a great time to show everyone what I already know: that Girl Scouts are Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-takers, and Leaders. And it’s no coincidence that spells GIRL! At Girl Scouts, we encourage girls to go out and take chances, learn new things, try and fail and try again, and learn the lessons that will serve them well in life. I personally enjoy visiting girls at weekend cookie booths. They show me the power of a cookie - the power of Girl Scouts - from building up the confidence of the shyest girl, to meeting a girl who found a new troop where she feels at home, to hearing about the amazing community service projects or adventures our girls are striving to achieve with their cookie proceeds. Check out the cookie round-up below to see what I mean.

    I am excited to not only share with you the highlights of the cookie season, but also to let you know about all the incredible things we accomplished as a council in 2016. Did you know our newest Special Interest Troop is a Press Corps? That our membership is growing and thriving? Join me at our Annual Meeting on April 1 at Kodosky to network with fellow Girl Scouts and hear about the awes...

    • Austin American-Statesman: "Girl Scout Troop 1124 dropped off $135 worth of gift cards Saturday [to a Dripping Springs family that is struggling to rebuild after a very difficult year]. The South Austin troop of seventh- and eighth-graders have made donating to a Season for Caring family a holiday tradition since they were in kindergarten and first grade. Each year they vote on which family to adopt, and this year, it was unanimous that it would be the Kings."

    More great stories about Central Texas girl scouts making the world a better place:

      Julia G. and Jenna L. of Troop 1930 wanted to help cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy to be more comfortable, so they partnered with Texas Oncology for an impressive Silver Award project. For their project, they: sewed more than 80 "port pillows" – little pillows that attach to a seat belt to keep it from rubbing against the patient's port; held a workshop to teach younger girls how to make the pillows and created a YouTube video to spread the word; created professional tri-fold pamphlets explaining how to make the pillows, which are available at Texas Oncology; collected donations to purchase personal care items, such as lotions, chapstick, and hot tea; worked with new Daisy recruits to make get-well cards and bracelets – all of these wonderful items were arranged in pretty baskets and delivered to Texas Oncology for the patients to enjoy! After Bryker Woods Elementary School received an Urban Forest Grant from the Community Foundation, more than 100 Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts who are stu...
