									Girl Scout Promise              Girl Scout Law
On my honor, I will try:        I will do my best to be
                                    honest and fair,
 To serve God and my country,
                                    friendly and helpful,
 To help people at all times,
                                    considerate and caring,
 And to live by the                 courageous and strong, and
  Girl Scout Law.                   responsible for what I say and do,
                                and to
                                    respect myself and others,
                                    respect authority,
                                    use resources wisely,
                                    make the world a better place, and
                                be a sister to every Girl Scout.

• All girls are encouraged to visit girlscoutvoices.org
  to register and let their voice be heard

• Your participation is important and helps us show
  the value of Girl Scouts to our community
• GSUSA has asked us to not post the Girls
  Guide to Girl Scouting video on-line until all
  councils have had a chance to premier it to
  their members.
• Once we have the go-ahead from GSUSA, we
  will post the video on gsneo.org
