Sea Life Park
Mural Painting Project
Have you been to Sea Life Park recently?  Big changes are happening, and our Oahu troops were invited to be part of it. They had the opportunity to beautify the partitions separating the construction site with a mural of their own design.  The participating troops got to see their piece of the project through from sketch to painting, and even get to attend the unveiling of the new attraction once completed!

Troop Spotlight:
Troop 770

We recently asked our troop leaders to complete a Take Action Survey, so we could gather examples of all of the amazing service our troops are providing.  We’ve received some great responses, and here’s just one amazing example.  Enjoy, and keep the responses coming! 
“I am the Assistant Troop Leader for Troop 770 on Maui.  I just finished taking the Taking Action survey.  It noted that we should send you photos and description of our service projects.

October 18, 2014
We volunteered at the Maui Humane Society.  The girls helped to stuff envelopes for a donation campaign they were working on. 

November 9, 2014
We volunteered to clean up the pumpkin patch at Kula Elementary School.

November 21, 2014
We volunteered at Hope Chapel.  The girls helped pack Operation Christmas Child boxes.  These boxes go all over the world to less fortunate children.

December 20, 2014
The Troop along with Brownie Troop 772 went Christmas Caroling at Hale Mahaolu in Makawao.  They also passed out homemade ornaments that they made at one of our meetings.

January 24, 2015
We volunteered at Trucker's Keiki Fun Day at Grace Bible Church.  The girls ran the coloring station.  All of the colored pictures were then sent to Trucker who was in the hospital.

We have done a lot more service projects this year.  The girls love to volunteer their time to help others.”

Aloha Patch Program

Would you like your family and friends on the mainland to learn more about your beautiful state of Hawai’i? Suggest the Aloha Patch program to do with their GS troops!
As girls earn the Aloha Patch, they will learn the Hawaiian Language, play games, make a lei, try different recipes, investigate water and endangered species, sing Hawaiian songs, make volcanos, and more!

If you are interested in the Aloha Patch Program, you can purchase the program here. The patch is sold separately.

2014-2015 Scout of the Year
Presented by the Veterans of Foreign Wars

Autumn Ollice, daughter of Commander Larry Ollice and Marianna Ollice attended the VFW Colonel Horace Hickam
post 970 meeting on May12 and was recognized for being selected as 2014-2015 Scout of the Year by the Veterans of Foreign Wars. She was selected by post 970 for her exemplary dedication to scouting and service to others and her community. She then was selected as the state of Hawaii's scout representative in the national level competition which awards the national winners $5000, $3000, $1000 scholarships.
At the ceremony Autumn spoke about how being a tag-a-long sibling supporting her five older brothers through their trail to Eagle Scout helped prepare her for her journey through Girl Scouting and success with her Gold Award. She loves being a Girl Scout camp counselor and hopes to continue it throughout her life. Her Gold Award project was to bring awareness to the community about safe and proper recycling and she improved the recycling program at the Aloha Stadium adding over 100 recycle barrels and rain run off lids to their inventory.She volunteered with NOAA and Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam setting up recycling awareness booths for Oceanfest and the Earth Day Fair and she invited singer songwriter and environmental activist Jack Johnson to have a cameo in her PSA to be shown on the Jumbotron at the stadium about recycling.

Autumn volunteers often and has earned two President's Volunteer Service Awards, gold level, having logged over 600 hours of service in the past two years. Giving back is very important to Autumn. Attending both Leeward Community College and Radford High School Autumn maintains a 4.4 GPA and hopes to pursue a career in the biomedical engineering field to design cutting edge prosthetic.
 Congratulation Autumn!

What’s a highlight of your scouting experience?

For the graduating Ambassadors of Koko Head Service Unit Troop 617, a highlight of their scouting experience was placing the peace pole at Camp Paumalu.  It started as the culminating take action project for a journey, and is now a constant reminder to all campers to put peace first.

Kauai Girl Scouts Give Back!

 The Girl Scouts of Hawai’i Kauai have been very busy in the month of May!  After a successful cookie season, the girls decided they wanted to give back to their community.  Over the course of one weekend they managed to make that goal come to life.
Five girls from the after school leadership programs at Kalaheo and Eleele schools were able to collect more than 325 pounds of food to help feed some of Kauai’s hungry people.  The delivery, made to Kauai Independent Food Bank on May 2nd, will most likely go toward the Keiki Backpack Program, where keiki receive a backpack of healthy food and snacks to carry them through the weekend.
The next day eighteen scouts from Kapaa, Kalaheo, as well as girls from the Kapaa and Wilcox afterschool leadership programs delivered their donation to the Healing Horses Kauai facility in Waialua.  They were able to collect $450 worth of supplies, which included necessities such as feed, shampoo, conditioner, buckets, and rakes. Afterward, girls received instruction on horses, and were even able to feed and water the animals, even getting to paint a horse.  This donation will help Healing Horses continue running their program, which assists in the emotional, physical, mental, and social well-being of Kauai’s youth and disabled community through equine-assisted activities.
