Scouts plan baked food sale
With two meetings behind us Girls Scout Troop 3785 is off to a great start. We have added another Daisy and Brownie so we are up to 10 girls.
Our first meeting was on Monday, December 6, which focused on learning the history of Girl Scouting and about the Girl Scout Law and Pledge. The Senior Girl Scout in our troop is extremely helpful with the girls. Sheís been sharing her experiences with Girl Scouting and the girls are excited to start earning badges while having fun.
Our second meeting was Monday, December 13th. We started right into our project after saying the Pledge of Allegiance and Girl Scout Pledge. The girls got to make their own símores for their snack. They wrapped each one in tin foil and we used a Dutch oven to bake them.
While the símores baked the girls began their craft project. They sewed pieces of fabric or old shirts and pants that will be stuffed to make pillows. The girls took part of this project home to finish up during their winter vacation. We all look forward to seeing their final product after the New Year.
The girls also discussed having a baked food sale to help with start up costs for our Troop. We will be having it on Monday, December 20 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in front of both Arnzen Drug and Rienerís Grocery. We will have a variety of holiday goodies so we hope many of you will stop by and check it out.
