Important Information

We will again be asking to give the girls the responsibility of bringing their dues to each meeting in their dues holder necklaces that they have made. The dues are $1 per meeting. Please also remind the girls to wear their Brownie sashes, uniforms, and/or pins to all Brownie activities, including meetings.

We are collecting for our first service project for local animal shelters. A list of supplies needed was sent home. We will be collecting items until Oct. 24th.

We have our first field trip of the year planned for Cold Stone Creamery on Oct. 17th right after school. We are asking that each girl pays half of the cost of each field trip this year. We are also planning an extended overnight field trip to attend next spring or summer.

We have included all important information on our troop website. Please check it out!!

Current Activities

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

After breaking into groups, the Brownies discussed the Cookie Caravan. We sold a total of 285 boxes in two days.

We also discussed the traditional Cookie Sale. Some things have changed from last year. All orders and money are due to Carol by October 29th. Delivery is set for November 28th. We also have included little green receipts to hand out to everyone that buys cookies. We have a little more if you need them.

The girls completed their activities for the 2007 Cookie Activity Pin and their Cookie Counts Try-It (if not completed). We discussed the manners that we should use in selling cookies and also the types of cookies available.

The girl also picked out the next Try-It to complete at the next few meetings.

Coming Up……..

The next meeting will be on Wednesday, October 24th right after school until 4:30pm.

We will be having a small Investiture and Rededication Ceremony at our next meeting. Parents are welcome to attend.

Thank you to all the girls and parents that helped make the cookie caravan go smoothly. We did an outstanding job.

The traditional Cookie Sale begins on Oct. 13th. I sent home all of the important information. Please call me if you have any other questions.

Our next field trip, Let’s Go On A Brownie Bear Hunt, will be Nov. 3rd. We will be leaving at 7 am and returning at 2 pm.

The Brownie girls will also be learning about the activities to Bridge up to Junior Girl Scouts during this year.
