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
||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

||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.
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,
of our girls practicing for the National
