Current Activities

We starting our meeting by choosing our Kaper Chart duties. We then recited the Girl Scout law and the Girl Scout Promise and the Pledge of Allegiance.

We began our activities by discussing the next Try-It that we are working on: Safety Sense. We discussed fire safety procedures and escape plans if there was a fire at our Brownie meeting.

We then started our craft of making first aid kits out of film canisters. Braiding the plastic lace started out difficult but the girls pushed right on through. The kits can be clipped on belt loops and backpacks for convenience and emergencey boo-boos.

We also collected more magazines and recipes to finish our troop recipe folders.

We enjoyed cupcakes from Melissa and juice from Meghan.

We ended the meeting with the Girl Scout Squeeze.

Coming Up……..

The next meeting will be on January 19th right after school until 4:45.


We are asking that parents pick up your daughters just a little later than usual. We will be having a Bella Bee Workshop and we should finish around 4:45 pm.


The Challenger Learning Center has been rescheduled to March 24th.

Please remind all the girls to bring a recipe and magazine to our next meeting to complete our troop recipe folders.

We are also trying to set up various field trips. We have been thinking about seeing a movie, visit the St. Louis Arch, tour a restaurant and go ice skating. We also have other field trips that the girls may be interested in.

If anyone has any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to call Carol at 768-4603 or Liz at 768-4677.

Thank you,

Carol and Liz
