Lynnhaven Shores Service Unit 250 has a long history of generosity and has funded several council projects. Each year the Lynnhaven Shores SU250 Girl Advisory Board, made up of girls in 1st through 12th grades, meet to choose a camp project to support with fundraising efforts.
This year, when the girls heard about all the damage to the Virginia Enmeier Program Center at Camp Skimino, they knew right away they wanted to take action to help with the cost of the repairs. They set a service unit goal of $10,000 and made a big thermometer to track their progress. They made a plan for the service unit to hold two events where they announced the goal and explained their plan to volunteers. With the support of all the volunteers, the campaign was launched!
The leaders in the service unit were asked to spread the word, including asking the families of troop members to support the effort by attending the events or making a direct donation. In addition, the troops held a vote to gather girl input on donating portions of their cookie proceeds to the campaign.
A check presentation was held at the service unit’s annual volunteer appreciation dinner on April 26 where a check for $10,000 was presented by Lynnhaven Shores Service Unit Director Susan Ramsland to Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast CEO Tracy Keller and former Council Board Chair Carolene Goodwin-Harris. Thank you, Lynnhaven Shores Service Unit 250!

Troops enjoyed a fun fall weekend of outdoor activities, campfires, and s’mores!
