Numeral Guards for 35 or more membership years and Years of Service Pins for 25 or more years of service are presented at the Annual Council Awards Celebration.

Little Ways to Say “Thank You”
Informal recognitions on the troop/group and individual levels are great ways to say “thank you” to volunteers! These sincere expressions of appreciation can be powerful when given with a personal touch.
Examples of meaningful informal rewards include:
- A welcome or thank-you card or letter
- Skill-building learning opportunities (For example, how to use social media to network)
- A recommendation for a promotion
- Sending the volunteer’s supervisor or CEO a letter recognizing her/his contributions
- Complimenting a volunteer’s work to a supervisor or co-worker (in the volunteer’s presence)
- Showing interest in a volunteer’s personal life (such as asking about a volunteer’s grandchild or weekend plans)
- Grade level Volunteer Pins

This fall, Girl Scouts hosted its 53rd National Convention in beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah from October 16-19! This exciting event reunited alumnae and invigorated a global movement of girls, women, and men around the theme, “Discover, Connect, Take Action: Girls Change the World.”
A cadre of speakers and entertainers—news makers, leaders, policy makers, and celebrities from across the country and around the world—converged on Salt Lake City this October to celebrate and advocate on behalf of girls.
Thank you to all of our Service Unit Team Members who took the time to come out for one of our fall L.E.A.D. Meetings! We had more than 80 volunteers in attendance over the three November meetings.
We enjoyed spending time with our dedicated volunteers over three delicious dinners, and got great feedback about the volunteer-chosen content. Small group discussions surrounding adult recruitment and conflict management produced some valuable tools for our volunteers to use!
If you missed the fall meetings, check out the presentation here! And be sure to register in the New Year for the Spring L.E.A.D. Meetings coming in March!
