Service Unit Communication Methods

We utilize many different methods to communicate Service Unit news to the leaders and parents of LSSU.

Private Facebook group 

Lynnhaven Shores - Girl Scouts

This private Facebook group will be used to communicate with troop leaders.  The SU will post alerts to emails, information about events, trainings and other SU news on this page. Questions can be asked in a private, safe place. Leaders will also be able to share great program and activity tips on this page. Photos of LSSU events only will be posted on this page (see public page for troop photos).

We would love to have all leaders as members of this group

so we can do some of our leaders meetings using Facebook Live.

This can only happen if we have at least 99% of our leaders on there.

If you don't use Facebook, consider opening a Facebook account just to join this page.  You don't need to be friends or even post a profile pic to have a Facebook page. 

Hannah, Susan and Karen will monitor this page. Contact [email protected]

Leader Meetings

Service unit leader meetings will become invaluable! Led by local volunteers, service units create a tight-knit sense of community within specific geographical regions, providing personal assistance and helpful resources that every Girl Scout volunteer should take advantage of.  By attending the Leader Meetings you’ll stay updated with what’s happening at the Service Unit and Council level. You can get your troop involved in volunteer or money-earning activities. You can learn something new and even network with other volunteers.
