Girl Scout Troop 2205
October 10, 2015
Recap of October 8th Meeting
At our last meeting, the girls started making a list of the things that they would like to do with the money they've earned, both for fun and for service projects, more on this below. They also made invitations to their upcoming Investiture/Re-Dedication ceremony/celebration. They used the recycled paper they made at our meeting on Sept 10th as the backing to their invitations. They turned out really cute.
Next Troop Meeting
Thursday, Oct. 22nd, 5:30pm
500 West Platt Street
We will be meeting in the Wesley Center, Rm 301. The building is usually unlocked, but just in case, the code is 8261*. As we have lots to cover before we need to setup for our ceremony, it is imperative that your daughter be in the room promptly at 5:30pm. Please have them wear a white shirt and khaki bottoms (shorts, skirts, skorts, pants are all fine), as well as their vests with their green tab (this should be a banner shaped piece of material with a flower-looking blue and gold pin on it that pins to the left shoulder of the vest).
As a reminder, the girls need to be signed in and out of the meetings.
Also, the meeting dues are $1.00 and your daughter should have done something special to earn that dollar (been extra kind to a sibling, offered to help you with something, did their chores with a smile, etc.). Let me know if you need to know her balance.
Investiture and Re-Dedication Ceremony
Every year the girls make a promise to carry out the principles and values set forth in the Girl Scout Law and Promise. This is done in an Investiture ceremony for girls new to Girl Scouting and a Re-Dedication ceremony for girls who have been a Girl Scout for at least one year. We will be celebrating both ceremonies this year at our next meeting, Thursday, OCT 22.
ATTIRE: Girls need to wear a white shirt and khaki/tan bottoms and their vest. Please make sure the green tab pin is also attached. Call me if you are not sure what this is.
The girls are now old enough to celebrate with a Candle Ceremony. This is a Girl Scout tradition that supposedly goes back to the beginning of Girl Scouts. You each should have received an invitation from your daughter to this ceremony. Siblings are welcome.
FALL SALES PROGRAM RECAP
We still have one more week of sales. Final day is next Monday, 19 October. I will need your daughter's form on Tuesday, 20 October. If I'm not home, just drop in my mailbox. I have to have everything entered into the system by midnight on the 20th. I also need the white copy of the permission form.
