Whole Troop News

  • Next Meeting: February 17
  • This week's meeting will be provide First Aid information for all the girls! Please be on time as there is a LOT of information to cover this week!
  • Cookies will be delivered February 27th. Please plan on picking them up at my house (14013 S. Timber Ridge Dr., Draper) sometime that afternoon. When I get confirmation on the time I can pick them up from the warehouse, I will set a time you can come to pick up your scout's order. (This probably won't be until a few days before the 27th.)
  • Parents - please make sure to sign your scout in and out every night - this helps us know who has done what activities, and to know who is there should something happen. Just a quick initial is all we need! Thank you!

Signing Up For Booth Sales

Welcome to the next phase of cookie sales! Hopefully I can provide all the info you need to know. Also, we are going to be decorating our booths March 2nd & 9th - we will be working on doing some practice at that time on how the booths should run. The 9th would be a GREAT meeting for you to attend so you can understand how the booth works, too! If you still have question, don't hesitate to send me an email (lawhittam@gmail.com) or give me a call (801-831-4840). Thank you for all of your support!

1. Girls will get a percent of each cookie booth she works. These will add to the cookies she has already taken orders for.

2. We also need adults to sign up - without adults, girls can't sell! We are asking for 3 adults for the safety and security of our scouts. At a busy booth sale, we want 2 adults present, even if one of them is taking girls for a break.

3. We cannot allow any siblings, friends, cousins, or other people to be at our booth sales. This is because they are not covered under our insurance. They can also serve as a distraction from taking care of the business at hand.

4. Please sign up your scout for only the time they can handle. I have divided all of the sign-ups into 1 hour slots. This may be all a Daisy can handle. The older the girl, maybe she can do more. Make sure you sign up for each hour you plan on having your scout and yourself at the booths. For example, to be at a booth on a Friday night from 4 to 8, you will actually have 4 separate sign-ups for your scout and 4 more for you.

5. We count on you to be there! If you don't show up for a time you have signed up, we may not get to conduct our booth. If we don't have a minimum of 2 adults and 3 scouts, we cannot set up our booth.

6. Booth sales are VERY important for our troop! If we don't sell all of the boxes of cookies we order, we are still financially responsible. This takes away the money we would otherwise have for learning and fun activities for our girls.

7. I have divided the booth sign ups into each of the 3 weekends. (Mostly because sign-up genius wouldn't let me do them all together.) Please make sure to sign up for all 3 weekends (as much as possible).

8. If you have any trouble, let me know and I can enter the sign up for you!

Brownie Bustles

Today we learned about World Thinking Day as a troop. The Brownies made journals so they can write about what they learned. The link below explains a little more about World Thinking Day. Share it with your girl and have them think about what they could do to make the world a better place. They have an assignment to write something in their journal and bring it next week to share with us.

Junior Journeys

The Juniors learned a song from the Irish Girl Guides and then helped teach the younger girls. It was called "Dum-dum-da-da" and if you haven't heard it at home, I think I would be surprised!! It was a ton of fun with LOTS of giggles!!


This past weekend we also worked on an ENTIRE Junior Journey! We have almost completely earned the Get Moving! Journey badges (there are 3). The girls decided as a final project to create magnets we can give away. These magnets have 1 tip from each of the girls on how to save energy. They came up with the original idea, with only a few suggestions and a little guidance from the leaders. In fact, I had something COMPLETELY different in mind. But, as the girls get older the idea is to let them grow into leaders. They do this by guiding their own activities. This was the case here - we let them brainstorm and come up with a bunch of thoughts and ideas and then decide which one they wanted to do. When they finish this project, they will have earned the whole journey. This is quite an accomplishment and we are all proud of them! If you haven't already seen them, be sure to check out the pictures on Facebook!


I consider myself very lucky to be working with such an AMAZING group of young ladies. Thank you for your support and encouragement.


And a SPECIAL "Thank You" to Michelle and Dorothy for working on this journey with us - I could NOT have done it without them! You guys ROCK!!!


Thanks,


Lori
