Not sure what Pinterest is all about, or are you already addicted to this social media phenomenon? Join us for a Pinterest Party! Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes and organize their favorite recipes. It’s a perfect resource for Girl Scouts! Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.

Bring your favorite Girl Scout creation from Pinterest, or just come to learn what it’s all about. We’ll provide supplies so you can learn how to make a few of our favorite pins. We’ll also spend time letting you know how we’re using Facebook, Twitter and our blog to let everyone know what’s happening! In the meantime, check out our Pinterest boards at pinterest.com/gswpa –and don’t forget to like us on Facebook at facebook.com/gswpa. Happy Pinning!

Are you thinking about working on a Journey with your girls this year? Have you worked on one, but then got stuck on the Take Action portion? Have you done a Journey and are ready to start another one with your girls including working on the Silver or Gold Award? Wherever you are in the process of the Girl Scout Journey work with your girls – we want to hear from you. This post-meeting conversation will be all about helping you to succeed with girls as they embark on a Journey. The activity will include breakout sessions for the novice all the way through to the advance Journey participant. The goal of this workshop will be to find out what you need to succeed, including what resources, training opportunities and any other support that staff can provide to assist you as you embark on a Journey. So, please join us for this lively and fun discussion and brainstorming session.
