This summer, GSUSA representatives visited GSNI’s “My Best Elf Self” camp at Baker Community Center in St. Charles to see how girls enjoyed using Healthy Habits, a component of the It’s Your Planet—Love It! Journey. The cameras were rolling as girls worked on WOW! Wonders of Water and learned about staying healthy throughout their lives.

GSNI is collaborating with OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center to produce a Pink Glove Dance Video on Sunday, September 22, 10:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m., at Saint Anthony Medical Center, 5666 East State Street, in Rockford. The filming will take place in front of the hospital. In case of rain, it will be moved to the atrium.

Once the video is complete, it will be uploaded to the Pink Glove Dance website where people can vote for their favorite video. First place will receive $25,000; second place will receive $10,000, and third place receives $5,000 to be donated to a charity of the winner’s choice that supports breast cancer research. GSNI and OSF have chosen American Cancer Society—Making Strides Again Breast Cancer to be the recipient of any support.

bronze award troop 414


Troop 414 recently received the Girl Scout Bronze Award by completing a Take Action Project about pet adoption. Here’s what leader Mary Crow had to say about the experience:


The Juniors decided to make the community aware of pet adoption as an alternative to buying pets from breeders. They held a dog and cat food collection at school and two other local businesses. They created posters and flyers about the collection and about pet adoption. Then they went out to neighborhood parks and distributed the fliers to the community.
