Reconnect and Rediscover

Since 1912 millions of women (and many men) have had their lives positively influenced, sometimes even transformed, by their Girl Scout experience. Whether you are one of the more than 50 million women who were Girl Scouts, including Daisies and Brownies, or you were a volunteer or staff member who helped Girl Scouts reach their full potential, you are forever connected to a rich and vibrant movement. We invite you to stay connected and change girls' lives.

Troop 1996

Troop 1996 was named after the opening of our Council’s headquarters, A Place for Girls, that took place in 1996. Girl Scout alumnae have been a big part of all the great activities and events, including funding many projects, at A Place for Girls from the start! Troop 1996 was established to bring our alumnae together to help the Council staff with administrative tasks such as preparing materials for upcoming girl programs, meetings, trainings and outings each month.

Tasks include various administrative functions such as preparing meeting packages, assembling kits for girl activities, or stuffing envelopes for a mailing. Tasks will be coordinated at A Place for Girls, the Council's headquarters and program center on Cedar Road once a month from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. You may help as often and for as long as your schedule permits.

For more information or to sign up to help, contact Robin Thomas at philanthropy@gsccc.org or 757-548-3809. Advance notice is appreciated so we will have an appropriate amount of materials ready.
