Meeting dues are $7.50 per meeting. They are payable the troop account regardless of attendance or non-attendance at all meetings. Supplies are prepurchased for the full troop for all meetings.
Meetings start at promptly at 4:30pm. Please make sure you arrive PRIOR to 4:30pm to ensure not disrupting of the meeting. We have had many girls arrive late and we have had to stop and readdress issues that were already discussed. Please be on time, everytime. Please do not call to tell a leader you are on your way-as this disrupts a meeting already in progress.
PARENTS- if you have any questions or financial matters that you need to address with a leader, please do so at pick-up time after 6:30pm.

Welcome to GSSGC Troop 1041's website
We are a troop located in Southern California. We are comprised of 10 Juniors, and 6 Cadettes. We enjoy many opportunities as Girl Scouts to give back to our community, such as food pantry donations that we have made as part of our meeting dues, blankets for the homeless, community park and beach clean-ups, clothing/toy donations for the area's needy residents, visiting our elder friends at the convalescent homes and hand-made animal toys and supplies for the local shelter. Each October 31st we honor Girl Scouts of America founder, Juliette Low, by taking new baby-girl gift baskets with items donated by our troop's girls to our local area hospitals for baby girls born on Mrs. Low's birthday. We also take part in many service area and council events. Our Cadette girls volunteer as Program Aides for our service area's day camp, as well as assist other younger level troops as individual aides and older-girl friends. We are proud of our Cadettes as three of them have been certified in CPR/First Aid/Babysitting. As a troop we enjoy a wide variety of pursuits such as community theater, museums visits, hiking, camping, snow days, movie days, bowling, ice skating and many more. We hope you like our website!

your canned/dry foods dues!
CANNED/DRY FOODS are part of our dues!
So please don't forget to bring in a canned or dry food item for EVERY meeting!
**Sadly, not everyone is participating in our canned goods meeting dues. We only get maybe 2-3 items per meeting! Please make sure to bring your items to EVERY MEETING - it really does help those who otherwise wouldn't have anything to eat and it's one of our service projects we contribute to all year long!
Thank you for your generousity at Christmas!
How lovely it was to bestow Christmas gifts on one of our own this holiday. ALL of our girls and their families made an unbelievable holiday for our friends. Love shows itself in many ways but when it is given without thought of return it is true, selfless LOVE. You have all shown that kind of love this holiday. That is the kind of love that can change the world. Changing the world for the better starts with ONE person. We started with a troop! Pass change on!
Silver & Bronze Award Projects Decided!
Our Cadette girls have decided to work together (and spare Ms. Amanda a headache!) hosting an event they have entitled,
"HOW TO SURVIVE MIDDLE SCHOOL". This event will take place after cookie season. It may even be before school resumes in the late summer, just as long as the event is done BEFORE October 1st.
Our Junior's have all decided to do their Bronze awards independently or in pairs or groups. They all have some wonderful ideas of giving service to others as they earn this prestigous award.
I am so proud of our girls in 1041 and know they will give it their all as they do in everything!
