We starting our meeting by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, the Girl Scout Promise and the Girl Scout Law for our Investiture Ceremony followed by our snack.

After breaking into groups, the Brownies discussed the importance of the Promise and Law in Girl Scouting.

We then discussed the GirlSports Try-It that we were working on for today. We completed all 4 of the required activities while using some of our extra energy.
