Meetings every Wednesday @ Hilltop Methodist Church 6-7 PM

Whole Troop News

  • Next Meeting: January 13 - COOKIE RALLY!!! We will be doing a variety of activities to get the girls ready for selling cookies.
  • Parents MUST attend this meeting - we will have a training session just for you to review the policies and procedures and to answer any questions you might have. Also, you will be able to fill out all of the required forms so your scout can actually sell cookies. If you can NOT attend this meeting, please contact Lori ASAP to schedule an alternative time for you to take care of this parent training.

Daisy Doings

This week the Daisy's learned all about elephants and then made African drums. Ask you daughter how many hours an elephant sleeps (2) and how many they spend eating (16). They know that females are called "cows," babies "calves, and males, "bulls." It was really fun! Next week is the big cookie rally! The girls will learn all about selling cookies!

Brownie Bustles

This week we made necklaces out of glitter and mod podge! The girls had a blast and we were all covered in glitter!! They have some great creative minds and made some beautiful jewelry!

We also listened to a story about Dr. Martin Luther King and how he fought for equality for all people. After the story, the girls were asked some questions about what they learned and received a handout about Dr. King's dream, and how it relates to the Girl Scout Law. There are many similarities to both: respecting others, being honest and fair, considerate and caring, and making the world a better place. It was a great lesson to hear about how we can live the Girl Scout Law every day.

Junior Journeys

The Juniors started working on 2 Cookie Business related badges: Business Owner and Customer Insights. The idea behind these badges is to start building an understanding of what it takes to start and run a successful business - and their first business is selling cookies!

The girls also got to help decide on an activity for next week to help the whole troop set selling goals. We love having the girls be active in planning and doing various activities. They have so many creative ideas, and we want to help them build some leadership skills.

In the next few months we will finish up these badges. We are also planning a Journey in an Overnight on February 12th. This will be at my house from about 6pm on Friday to 4-ish on Saturday. 2 moms and I will be planning activities to help the girls earn almost the entire journey at once! I think the only thing after that day will be a service project that they will plan. I truly hope your daughter will be able to join us - it just won't be as good without everyone there. If you want to come as well (and haven't already told me so), we would love your company, too! I will send out a more detailed schedule and list of what to bring (sleeping bag, toothbrush types of of things) in the next couple of weeks. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to give me a call at 801-831-4840.

Thanks for all you do!
