Service Unit Transitions

Traditions help build a sense of community and bring us together. However, as time goes on we need younger leaders and troops to step up and help us carry on the traditions that make the State College Service Unit an amazing scouting group. Next year we will need new champions to pick up Service Unit Leader, Spring Daisy Day (and more!), and Cookie Rally.

Service Unit Leader

Jodi will be stepping down as Service Unit Leader and we are will need a new Service Unit Leader. If you are interested in filling this role or would like to nominate someone, please contact us. You will be joining an amazing team of dedicated volunteers. You do not need to be a Troop Leader to be the Service Unit Leader.

Service Unit Leader is a 3 year term and responsibilities include coordinating with council and running monthly service unit meetings.

We have also began the effort of formalizing our leadership team and we would love to add you to the team. Each position we have identified should ideally have a deputy and we have certainly not identified every position the service unit needs filled.

Troop 41152 – Spring Daisy Day

Ambassador Troop 41152 will be graduating this year and looking for a younger troop to take on many of the services they provide for our area.

Each year these amazing young women plan and run our Spring Daisy Day during Spring Camporee to help introduce our newest scouts to camp. Please let us know if your girls are interested in picking up this vital tradition.

In addition to our spring daisy day, Troop 41152 has suffed stockings for our military troops, volunteered at the Boalsburg Hometown Christmas, decorated the Girl Scout tree at the Festival of Trees, and volunteered at the Fillmore Food Bank. It is thier hope that another troop will pick up their torches.

Cookie Rally

The 7th and 8th grade girls from Cadette Troop 41253 are hoping to mentor a younger troop, Juniors or Cadettes, in learning how to plan and carry out the annual Service Unit Cookie Rally.  2018 would be a combined effort and the new troop would take over the 2019 event on their own.  This is a great way for Cadettes to earn hours toward the Service to Girl Scouts award.
