Current Activities

We starting our meeting by reciting the Girl Scout law and the Girl Scout Promise and the Pledge of Allegiance.

We had a very exciting meeting with a special guest, fire chief Casey Trentman. He discussed fire safety and what we should do in case of a fire. Mr. Trentman also showed us his uniform and fire fighting equipment. The girls had many questions and comments about his uniform and equipment.

We collected some Brownie homework. Please remember to bring it to the next meeting, if you have not done so.

We also passed out our order forms and permission slips for our Nut and Candy Sale Fundraiser.

We then enjoyed brownies from Mackenzie and punch from Delynn. We also chose Brownie Bucks gifts,

We ended the meeting with the Girl Scout Squeeze and choosing Kaper Chart duties.
