OUR LEADERS DAWN

MEADE DUFFY

In the past year, a top priority for Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council has been increasing both girl and adult membership to ensure that ALL girls have the opportunity to participate and embrace the Girl Scout experience. Some of the largest concentrations of high poverty and underserved girls in the country live within the boundaries of the San Gorgonio Council. These girls—OUR GIRLS—need the values, ideals and programs that the Girl Scout Movement offers. Our Board of Directors adopted a strategic vision of reaching out and delivering Girl Scout programs to girls who may have never considered Girl Scouting in the past: Latinas, African Americans, and economically disadvantaged girls. We are one of the few Girl Scout councils in the nation with a primary focus of reaching out to minority and high poverty girls. The campaign to recruit all girls has begun and the unprecedented growth of twelve percent in GSSGC membership achieved this year validates the impact Girl Scouts can make on our communities. Today, while cookies, crafts and camp are still a vital part of the Girl Scout experience, we are also preparing girls for a future that hasn’t been invented yet. We are offering experiences and activities that focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math; take-action projects that address community needs; programs designed to combat bullying; events and programs that tackle difficult body image and self esteem issues; and a host of other programs that prepare our girls to go out and be the best that they can be. Ours is a trailblazing Council in the Girl Scouting Movement, through our tradition of focusing on what our girls need. We continue our long tradition of lifting girls up and encouraging them to pursue their dreams and goals. When we look back over the past 100 years, we see a long and storied history of inclusiveness, which we fully embrace at GSSGC. We know there are still many girls in the Inland Empire that need what Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio can offer, and we are determined to give every girl the opportunity to live the Girl Scout experience. Our Council has reached a time of stabilization. We look forward to all the possibilities the future holds for GSSGC. Our past supports our driving force to pave the way for all of our girls to participate and grow in the Girl Scout Movement. If the past year is any indication of success, I see a bright future for GSSGC.

CYNTHIA

H. BREUNIG

Fiscal Year 2012 marked a transformative period for Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio. Experienced, skilled and stable employees coalesced to deliver programs and services to our girls and adult volunteers. Senior staff has formed a collegial team, working with transparency, trust and effectiveness. Our Council enhanced its financial stability—the result of unprecedented product sales, fund development initiatives, and careful shepherding of precious resources. Positive changes to the volunteer structure made management of our invaluable volunteer force more decentralized and effective. We are a strong, nimble, responsive organization that is aggressively achieving our Board of Directors’ strategic goals for membership, volunteers, programs and properties.

Our Council encompasses 27,000 square miles, with an ethnically and economically diverse demographic. Service centers in Redlands, Murietta, Victorville and Palm Desert support the girls and thousands of adult volunteers who live in urban population centers and rural communities alike. Without the hundreds of thousands of hours that our volunteers freely give to our girls, Girl Scouts could not exist. The talented and dedicated people who staff our service centers understand this and are committed to meeting our volunteers’ needs. Courage, Confidence Character: these are the building blocks that Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio offers girls, as they prepare to assume leadership roles in their families, communities, workplaces and public life. This annual report describes achievements in membership growth, product sales and program delivery that have placed Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio in the top tier among the 112 councils in the country. We have set the bar high because our girls deserve nothing less than the best. It is part of our commitment to care for our girls, believe in them and help them along the path to lifelong leadership and success.

OUTDOOR COOKING MILESTONE

DISASTER RELIEF MILESTONE

EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS MILESTONE

PAINTING YOUR FUTURE MILESTONE

Explore 100 years of outdoor cooking through the centuries. DOG (Dutch Oven Gathering) members did live demonstrations and taste-testing with the girls.

Girls created semaphore flags out of chopsticks and fabric and learned how to use them to communicate SOS and other messages. They also had the opportunity to use small telegraphs and learn how to send SOS via Morse code.

GIRL SCOUTS ON FOREIGN SOIL MILESTONE

The first Girl Scouts established on foreign soil were in Saudi Arabia, Mexico and China. Girls learned how the promise and law differ from country to country and had the opportunity to work on crafts from each culture. For Saudi, they did tile painting. For China, they worked with symbols from the zodiac calendar. And for Mexico, they made tissue flowers to wear in their hair.

The history of Girl Scouts and the American Red Cross was represented by an old time replica of a Military field hospital run by a female living history war enactment group, the 45th Regimental Field Hospital. Girls learned what it was like to provide medical care on the field in World War II.

Continuing the Girl Scout tradition of creativity and selfexpression, girls were able to create a collective mural of the significance of the movement. Girls were also able to express their own individuality by creating flags specific to their regions, troops and friends.

SPORTS MILESTONE

Girls celebrated health and fitness with an amazing group of both female and male athletes!

COOKIE RALLY MILESTONE

Girls learned entrepreneurial skills and the best business practices in this important Girl Scout milestone. They were able to learn history of the Girl Scout cookie and discovered all the amazing things a cookie can do.

Margaret Scout Service Award THE MARGARET SCOUT AWARD RECIPIENT IS AN ACTIVE CADETTE, SENIOR OR AMBASSADOR GIRL SCOUT MEMBER REGISTERED WITH THE GIRL SCOUTS OF AMERICA AND HAS A MINIMUM OF 50 SERVICE HOURS. THIS AWARD RECOGNIZES AN INDIVIDUAL WHO HAS OFFERED OUTSTANDING SERVICE TO COUNCIL AND HER COMMUNITY.

EMMA THOMAS Emma Thomas is an amazing young woman who is destined to lead. For Emma, her greatest reward is knowing that she has accomplished something and is truly making a difference in the world. Even when she is being recognized for her own performance, resulting in reaching outstanding goals, she volunteers to work side by side with leaders and council staff at every turn. A prime example is Cali Girl 2012; she was not just a Girl Scout who earned that incentive. Emma assisted with Daisy check-in as well as with check-out for 700 Brownies-Ambassadors. She volunteers her time at every Mega Drop, weekend cookie cupboards, Operation Gratitude and countless council and regional events. Emma repeatedly assists council staff with long hours of preparation work for incentive distribution and event packing or set up. This year alone, Emma has done 425 hours of service. The greatest thing about Emma’s service is that her altruism is genuine and truly a way of life for her. She is an ideal role model for other girls and adults alike. Emma makes this world a better place with every minute she gives back to the community.

Girl Scout of the Year THE GIRL SCOUT OF THE YEAR IS THE HIGHEST COUNCIL AWARD PRESENTED TO A GIRL IN GRADES 9-12 WHO EXEMPLIFIES THOUGH HER WORDS, ACTIONS, AND INVOLVEMENT THE HIGHEST IDEALS OF CHARACTER, CONDUCT, PATRIOTISM AND SERVICE.

ALLISON AOUN Allison Aoun is dedicated to many things in life, but most of all Girl Scouts. She has tirelessly been an advocate for scouting through her words and deeds. Participating in every activity her troop has done, Allison has also taken initiative to start service projects and plan activities for her troop and community. Everything Allison does is inspired by the Girl Scout Promise and Law and she truly believes in being a friend to every Girl Scout, often helping new scouts in activities and journeys so they get the best possible experience. Allison is dear asset to program, scouting, and being a friend to those in need, in addition to believing that all girls deserve to have a bright future. She does her part to help in any way she can.

Girl Scout Leader of the Year LEADER OF THE YEAR PROVIDES OUTSTANDING AND MEMORABLE SERVICE TO GIRLS OVER A PERIOD OF 5 CONSECUTIVE YEARS.

ELAINE LAMBERT Having been a volunteer for the past 10 years, Elaine has not only been a leader of 29 girls, but a co-leader in another troop and has helped start two new troops in the Barstow area. Elaine is on the product sales team, advisory team, and has taken the time to mentor new troops. Many would agree that Elaine is the miracle worker of the Barstow area, helping recruit and run programs, and starting one of the first multi-grade troops to ensure no girl was left out. She is the kind of Girl Scout who believes in the Movement and shares her knowledge with all her girls through guidance, fun, programming, and dedication.


MEMBERSHIP WHILE THE MAJORITY OF GIRL SCOUT COUNCILS IN THE NATION EXPERIENCED DECLINES IN GIRL MEMBERSHIP FOR 2012, GIRL SCOUTS OF SAN GORGONIO EXPERIENCED A 12 PERCENT INCREASE IN GIRL MEMBERSHIP. GSSGC IS REACHING OUT AND DELIVERING GIRL SCOUT PROGRAMS TO ALL GIRLS, INCLUDING THOSE THAT MAY HAVE NEVER CONSIDERED GIRL SCOUTING IN THE PAST-LATINAS, AFRICAN AMERICANS, AND ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED GIRLS. AS MORE GIRLS ARE RECRUITED, IT IS VITAL THAT MORE ADULT VOLUNTEERS JOIN GIRL SCOUTS TO HELP LEAD TROOPS, MENTOR GIRLS, AND SUPPORT THE GIRL SCOUT MOVEMENT.
