OLA Juniors Help with Breast Cancer 3 Day - see the slide show!

The 5th grade Girl Scouts from Our Lady of the Assumption (OLA) Parish performed community service at  the Breast Cancer 3 Day Event by participating in the Camp Angels Program.  This volunteer program gave the girls an opportunity to perform vigorous, but satisfying physical labor in support of the 3-Day walkers.  Fourteen OLA Juniors worked hard helping to set-up 1500 bright pink tents, and cheering on the exhausted walkers as they finished day one of the 60 mile journey.  Troop Leader Karen Mujica said "This experience was very empowering for the girls, because they witnessed first hand thousands of women working together for a common goal.  It is a fine way to teach these young girls that we as women are not powerless...that we can work together and fight for a cure."  For more information and to find out about additional volunteer opportunities, please visit the Breast Cancer 3 Day website: http://www.the3day.org/

For their Bronze Award Jr. Troop #23437, from Vanderlyn Elementary, focused on increasing the number of Dunwoody participants in the Dekalb County Blue Bin Recycling Program.  The troop first learned the details of the program and then developed an interactive workshop, called “Do You Do Blue?!” for younger Girl Scouts that would teach those girls about the program and encourage them to spread the word.  In addition, members of the troop worked to educate and encourage their own families, school friends and neighbors, hoping to see an increase in Blue Bins all around them.  Please consider following their lead and ‘Going Blue’!

In 2008, 4,546 Boxes of GS Cookies shipped from Dunwoody Girl Scouts and supporters just like you!

Madeline Miller is "making the world a better place." She organized a landscaping plan and planting day to plant native flowering bushes and flowers in order to stop soil erosion and beautify Silver Lake. She bought and planted camellia bushes and 17 varieties of annuals and perennial wildflowers.  This was part of her bronze award project.
Hi Everyone,   Just a note, about two years ago, I went to a meeting at Chestnut Elementary, to sign my daughter up for Brownies.  I met the most encouraging and wonderful women...She was a single Mom, like myself, and was there to encourage new troop formation. She called on a consistent basis and showed me a door, that I thought I could never walk through.  What a seed she planted!  The next year we formed a troop out of my daughter's school and I became a co-leader.  I know everyone feels the tremendous joy when helping others.  Watching my daughter and the other girls grow has made me recognize that one person can make a difference.  You can change the world with only one person.  I look at the lives I am touching, as someone once did for me.  Thank you so much for the opportunity and the open door.  I have attached a photo that I waited 30 years to take.  All my appreciation and love,  Joanie Hartman

Troop #22424  hosted a Birthday Bash at GA Baptist Children's Home.  Nearly all the troops in Dunwoody helped out by hosting a cabin, making gifts and cards, sending party decorations or collecting donations for the center.
Girls from the Dunwoody Service Unit held a Flag ceremony for Atlanta Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women.
