This year, Girl Scouts from around Western New York marched in parades and participated in ceremonies honoring our fallen heroes. Check out some of the pictures below and see the full album on Facebook!
Today our Girl Scout Cookie drops begin! It’s the weekend when all the ordered cookies are delivered and our wonderful sellers come to our warehouse locations to pick them up.
Cookie season means a lot of Girl Scouts because we know the value it has on our members. Not only are they helping to fund their troop and council programs, they’re learning valuable lessons about entrepreneurship and financial literacy. We love seeing all the photos come in of their excitement around the kick off of Girl Scout Cookie season and taking orders.
To see more Cookie Kick Off pictures from around the council, check out our Facebook Page!
It may the end of part of Cookie Season, but in three short days we’re moving onto booths! Be on the lookout for cookie booths near you or find them here: www.girlscouts.org/cookies
During the month of March, we’re focusing on dental health! Girl Scouts who participate will increase their knowledge of dental health and take action to provide dental hygiene supplies to other children in their communities.
Girls of all levels are invited to participate in the Dental Health Collection and Patch Program and earn this exclusive patch!
Learn about teeth. What are the parts of a tooth? In a book or online,
find a diagram of a tooth and learn about its parts. Find the crown, root, enamel, pulp, and cementum. What is the importance of each part?
Find out why it is important to brush and floss every day. Make a personal brushing and flossing chart to record when you brush and floss for two weeks.
Discover how our diet helps or hurts our teeth. A healthy diet means healthier teeth but some foods like sugar can harm them. Learn about a balanced diet. Make a collage or draw a picture that shows which foods are either good or bad for our teeth.
Find out about careers related to dental health. For Daisies and Brownies and Juniors – Draw a picture of what you think a dental health professional looks like. For Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors – Find out about college programs, that are offered at nearby schools, in the field of dental health.
Help others keep their teeth healthy too! Collect dental hygiene items such as toothbrushes, dental floss, and toothpaste to donate to community dental clinics in Western New York. Bring your donations to your nearest GSWNY Service Center during the month of March.
Our GSWNY Dental Hygiene Collection will benefit local children through Western New York Community Dental Providers.
The patch will be available for sale in our GSWNY Council Shops. Count the number of items you collect so we can see how many smiles we’ll make brighter!
