Troop Leaders: Can You See Your Roster?

New Membership Year, New Roster

The new membership year begins tomorrow, October 1st!  As you may have already noticed, you haven't had access to your troop tab in your Girl Scout account today.  This is  because GSUSA is switching everything over to show only girls who are registered for the 2015-2016 Membership Year.  Tomorrow you will be able to see the roster for the new membership year! Please note, though, you will not see a roster for the 2014-2015 year.

And, just one more tip: If you haven't filled out your returning volunteer agreement form, you still won't see your troop tab. So, for anyone who may have forgotten that form, get it turned in so you can get started on the adventures that await us all in this brand new membership year! Thanks for your hard work, Volunteers!

Hear the Beep Where you Sleep!

September 27, 2015 - Kokohead troops were out in force over the weekend painting murals at Spalding House to support fire safety. Though the day was a wet one, artists, schools and scout troops were out in force to offer their help and creative talents. This year’s theme—Hear the Beep Where you Sleep: Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm—inspired murals that will be placed in front of every fire station on Oahu during Fire Safety Month. Thanks for your service to our communities!
