GSHCC PROPERTY USAGE
What do the names Juliette, Low, Courage, Confidence and Character all have in common? They are rooms that are now available for troops and service units to use at the Sacramento Regional Program Center and Modesto Regional Office. And best yet, there is no usage fee for these rooms or any of our cabin properties. A $50 deposit is required, which will be held but not processed unless necessary. Read more about GSHCC’s properties, then book your next meeting at a location nearest you.

Volunteer


VOLUNTEER AWARD NOMINATIONS
A recent study finds the longer a girl stays in Girl Scouts, the more likely she will lead a successful life as an adult. It’s because of our adult volunteers that girls gain the positive benefits of Girl Scouting—and we want to honor these dedicated volunteers. Please nominate an exceptional Girl Scout volunteer for an award by November 6. Also, if you’ve been a Girl Scout for 20 or more years, we want to know! Pins honoring 20 or more years of Girl Scout membership will be presented at the council annual meeting on February 8.

See pin eligibility and nominate by November 6
