Girl Scouts of the Southern Appalachians
Early Bird Renewal Ends June 12!
You must complete the council renewal opt-in form and allow us to pull the money out of your troop account in order to earn Early Bird rewards.

At least 2 adult volunteers AND 80% of girls in the troop must be renewed by June 12 to qualify for remaining incentive (Early Bird rocker to go with MY25 patch).
Early Bird: Have Us Handle Renewal FOR YOU!
NEW THIS YEAR: To help you renew your troop for MY25, you can opt-in for the council to do it for you! All you need to do is complete an online form and provide:

• The names of the girls and volunteers being renewed
• The troop's bank account information

Opting-in to have us renew your troop for you is the only way to earn Early Bird Renewal rewards.

We will pull the membership fees out of your troop bank account via ACH and renew your members for you. We will pull the funds out of your account by the end of June 14 at the latest. Early Bird rewards are based on the date you submit the form to us.
Opt-In to council renewal
Reminder: Annual Financial Reports must be submitted by June 15!
Get a head start on compiling your troop’s transactions for the year! Annual Financial Reports are required to be submitted by June 15 to Council for the current year. The purpose of these reports is to provide our auditors the information required for our annual audit as well as for our annual tax return reporting to the IRS. Beginning in June, this information should be submitted through the Finance Tab in the Volunteer Toolkit.

What we need from each troop:
  • The Financial Worksheet, a tool to help you submit to the VTK. This is the preferred worksheet. However, you may use another format that provides the same information if necessary.
  • Six months of bank statements (December 2023 through May 2024).
  • The VTK Summary Report. The VTK shuts down July 1 for a few days. You will not be able to submit your Annual Financial Report through VTK after that date.
NOTE: If you haven’t renewed your membership for the 2024 membership year, you will not be able to access VTK at all until your membership has been renewed.

What are your troop’s plans for the summer?
Meeting regularly or taking a break? Maybe you’re planning one big outing? Or perhaps you need an idea for one?

Remember that the Museum is open whenever the Knoxville Office is open! You're welcome to bring your troop to visit. We offer a chance for girls to try on uniforms from years past. If you'd like to schedule a docent-led tour or a uniform try-on experience, please see the form on the Council website for scheduling information.

Joyce Maienschein Leadership Grant
Cadettes, Seniors, or Ambassadors who are working on a community service, take action project, or High Award can apply for a Joyce Maienschein Leadership Grant to help make their dream a reality. Not only can the girls receive funding for up to $500, but they gain life skills like writing, budgeting, organization, and teamwork. It's a win-win! 
Be Seen in Your Community
Girl Scout girls, volunteers, and parents of the Takoda Service Unit visited the Chattanooga Ronald McDonald house for a day of service in April. The group brought a large collection of pop tops (a 3-year-collection’s worth!) and donated other needed items. They cooked a dinner for the residents and donated boxes of Girl Scout Cookies. The group also did general cleanups and organization in the house. It was a very rewarding experience for all involved!
