Girl Scouts of River Bluffs Council Troop #1116, St. Libory, IL

Current Activities

We started our meeting together with the Brownie troop by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, the Girl Scout Promise and the Girl Scout Law.

After breaking into the different age groups, the Daisies completed activities about the “considerate and caring” petal and also the “courageous and strong“ petal.

We completed two more activities too. The first activity was Crayon Resist. The girls colored pictures with crayons and then painted over them with green tempera paint. The crayon was suppose to resist the paint, but I don’t think it worked quite as well as it was suppose to. It worked with certain colors in certain places.

The girls also participated in group stories with the Brownie troop. Almost all of the girls stood up and told everyone about a dream that they had or told another story. Some of the stories were funny but most of them were scary.

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. They will also discuss more about learning the Girl Scout Promise and earning their petals.

We will be planning a couple of field trips within the next few months and will send the information home soon. If you have any suggestions, please let us know.

We completed our meeting by doing the Friendship Squeeze.

Important Information

The next meeting will be on Wednesday, December 19th right after school until 4:30pm. It’s our Christmas Party!!!! Everyone is welcome to bring something if they would like. We will be playing some games, completing a craft and having some refreshments. The girls will also be spending their Daisy Dollars that they have earned. It is like treasure box at school.

I will be going to the council shop sometime before the end of the year or beginning of next year if anyone would like to place an order for uniforms. Uniforms are not required, but they are recommended. Since the girls are only Daisies for one year, we are suggesting that you buy the minimum. The only items that we suggest is the World Trefoil pin and the insignia tab for a total of $4.05. The girls have already received their Daisy membership pins at the Investiture Ceremony. Please remind the girls to wear their Daisy necklaces and pins to every Girl Scout event including meetings.

We have also set up our Daisy Girl Scout Troop website. The address is listed at the top of this and future newsletters. Please check it out and sign our guestbook.

If anyone has any questions or comments, please call Carol at 768-4603.

Thank you, Carol and Sue
