Important Information

The dues are $1 per meeting. We are asking that the girls have the responsibility of bringing their dues in their dues holders. Please also remind the girls to wear their Brownie sashes, uniforms, and/or pins to all Brownie activities, including meetings.

We will be planning a couple of field trips within the next few months and will send the information home soon.

We will also be starting to plan our BIG FAMILY field trip. We have planned the trip for June 20-22, 2008. We will be purchasing our tickets to Holiday World and reserving our hotel rooms soon. So, mark your calendars.

We will also try to catch up on a few activities that were missed by a few girls at the beginning of the new year.

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.

All of our activities that we completed were done with the Daisy troop. The Daisy troop is working on the Bridging to Brownie Girl Scouts activities.

We will also be starting the activities to Bridge to Junior Girl Scouts soon.

We completed the Manners Try-It. We discussed different ways on how to respect others, polite introductions, phone manners, and greetings from around the world.

We also discussed ways on how to compliment others instead of “being mean”.

At the next meeting we will learn a foreign eating custom by trying our hands at chopsticks and Chinese food to finish up our Manners Try-It.

We finished our meeting by picking our Brownie Bucks gifts.

Coming Up……..

The next meeting will be on Wednesday, January 30th right after school until 4:30pm. We will be meeting at the school, then going to Carol’s house for the meeting. You will need to pick up your daughters at Carol’s house.

We will begin the Nut & Candy sale on February 1st. More information will be sent home as soon as we receive it. This sale will help cover the ticket prices to Holiday World in June.

We will also be planning a couple of field trips within the next few months. We will send information home soon about each one of them to see if anyone would be interested in attending. Please call if you have any other suggestions for field trips.
