Current Activities

We starting our meeting by reciting the Girl Scout law and the Girl Scout Promise. Then we chose our Kaper Chart activities.

Courtney took the girls attendance/dues and Mackenzie lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance.

We completed 2 of the 4 activities for our Make it, Eat it Try-It.. We all helped make sloppy joes and fruit salad. It worked out great since school was dismissed early. The girls enjoyed themselves. Everyone got a turn at cooking and mixing the sloppy joes and preparing a fruit for the fruit salad.

We also chose our other 2 activities to complete our Try-It.

We enjoyed snacks brought by Delynn and Hannah.

Finally, we ended the meeting with the Girl Scout Squeeze and the girls playing outside until it was time to go home.

**Brownie Bucks will be distributed at the next meeting for this meeting.**

Coming Up……..
