My council started a Leaders of Western Washington Facebook account.. And so we all go there and post things that are happening around the Puget Sound. I have sound some wonderful events for my older troop to participate in because of that site! As your girls are in high school it is harder to find cool things to do.. And I still have 10 very active in scouting 10th graders...
I am also a member of GreenBloodNews and it's sister, GreenBloodGab. Gab is not for the faint of heart, and if you get annoyed when things go off in tangents, do not join Gab. They often run into serious debates, tangents, but I've also gotten a lot of help from them.
There is another site that I have used. I wanted to start with the new Guides, but my council's store was completely out. So, I went to gsbadge.info/ (not affiliated with GSUSA) to find out at least what the requirements were for a few badges to get my Daisies and Brownies started.
I will have to get the other sites I use. Basically, I Google what I need to know. Then, I put the site in my favorites for later.

Let's share where we get our ideas for the girls or information on program changes. Let's try to get 50 resources!!!!
My favorite, because it captures such a wide range of information - is the yahoo group, Greenbloodnews. This group only has posts from the moderator, there is a companion group greenbloodgab that allows for discussion.
