Flag Ceremony Etiquette

In honor of Flag Day, which is celebrated on June 14, we are sharing some great flag ceremony tips with our troops. Click here to learn more about flag etiquette.

A flag ceremony honors the American flag as the symbol of our country, representing all the hopes, dreams and people it consists of. If your troop includes girls from other countries, you can honor their flags too by holding an international flag ceremony. 

Troops can order flags through their local council shops, located at one of our four service centers.

Volunteer Recruitment T-Shirts Available!

Have you ordered a 2014 Volunteer Today! Recruitment T-shirt yet? Troops, service units and individuals are able to place orders. What a fun way to spread the word about Girl Scouting and volunteering!

The T-shirts are $15 each and the deadline to order is Thursday, June 12. An order form can be found here.

Join Us in Our Search for a New CEO

You are invited to provide input on Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont CEO search!

As you have heard, Marcia Cole is retiring this year- and we have big shoes to fill! The Search Committee would like to hear from YOU about what kind of leader P2P needs in our next CEO. The Search Committee is working with a search firm, Coleman Lew, to coordinate the search process. Representatives from Coleman Lew will be visiting locations throughout our council so they can hear directly from YOU- our volunteers, members, donors and the community- about the needs for the council and the qualifications desired for the new CEO. 

Meetings will be held from 6-7:15 p.m. on the following dates:

  • Tuesday, May 27: Asheville Service Center
  • Monday, June 2: Greensboro, First Lutheran Church, 3600 West Friendly Avenue, Greensboro, NC,  Room A-7
  • Monday, June 2: Winston-Salem, Parkway Presbyterian Church, *1000 Yorkshire Road, Winston Salem, NC,  Fellowship Hall
  • Monday, June 9: Hickory Service Center
  • Monday, June 9: Gastonia, Camp Rotary, 130 Camp Rotary Road, Gastonia, NC  

*Parkway Presbyterian – located at Silas Creek and Kirlees Road.  Take Business 40 to Silas Creek Parkway North.  Look for “Kirlees Road Next Left.”  Take this left, enter parking lot on right just after this left.  Fellowship Hall is the main building at this parking lot.

Your input is an important part of this process, and we hope you are able to attend the meeting nearest to you. A representative from our team at Coleman Lew will be present at each meeting and search committee members, as well as board members, are invited to attend as well.
