Daisy Troop 2209

September 2014 Update

Hi Troop 2209 Parents!

It's our first update of the year! We kicked off our first meeting with seven new troop members. Our host was Aerian Ford--thank you, Aerian!

Highlights of this month's meeting:
  • We played a get to know you game and learned a lot about each other
  • Everyone divided into pairs and our returning Daisies taught our new Daisies the Girl Scout Promise and Law (see bottom of email)
  • New Daisies were officially welcomed into our troop and received their member and World Trefoil pins
  • Returning Daisies received their one year member pins
  • The ideas each of our troop members brought in were put on a large poster and everyone voted on their top three choices. See below for the finalists!

Parents! Don't forget about happy hour this Thursday at the Green Lemon at 8pm. Our next meeting is Tuesday, October 21st, right after school. Our host is Cyndi Brillhart, Hope's mom.

NEW DAISIES: Iron on the Blue Center Patch:

Our new girls learned the Girl Scout Promise and Law and earned their center blue patch. Tip: before ironing on the center patch, you may want to lay out all of the petals and make sure it is positioned properly (but only iron on the center patch). It should look like this sample picture. We will help our new Daisies catch up with earning their petals during each meeting this year.

Brainstorming

Everyone brought in their top three ideas of what they wanted to do at our meetings this year. It was a lot of great ideas. Our girls voted on their top three from a combined list. Here are the frontrunners:

  • Ice skating (11 votes)
  • Dog wash (seven votes)
  • Learn about mermaids (seven votes)
  • Sleepover (five votes)
  • Camping (five votes)


We will revisit other ideas on the list that got a couple of votes as the year goes on. Tons of great ideas!

The Girl Scout Promise and Law

The Girl Scout Promise

On my honor, I will try:

To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.


The Girl Scout Law

I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
and to
respect myself and others,
respect authority,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.
