The Copperfield Courier - October 2013

Night, it is never too late to become a Girl Scout! Girl scouting has been building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place- and we’ve been doing it since 1912. A great deal has changed since 1912, and Girl Scouts have made changes in our programs while remaining true to our core values, the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Contact Dianne Massie (Dianne.massie@att.net) or call 281-550-9148 for more information. You can also check the website for Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council at www.gssjc. Fall Product sales of candy and nuts are running from Sept. 13 through October 4. Two new items this year are Dark Chocolate Mint Penguins and double chocolate truffles. There are lots of other tasty treats- just to keep you going until the Cookie Sale in January! Product sales give a girl the chance to learn goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. It also helps troops fund their activities and helps support our great camps and their varied programs. What else do Girl Scouts do? They help in their communities in many ways. They may make greeting cards for veterans, collect and shelve food at local food pantries, do face painting at a school carnival, or organize a recycling campaign. There are many, many things to do as Girl Scouts, and many different kinds of Girl Scouts to do them. Some of us act in plays; others build the scenery or make the costumes. Others may write the play or the music, or set up a web page for the production. We are just starting to plan our calendar of events for the year, but we are looking forward to a good time!
