Girl Scout Troop 386 has been active! We have added 3 new Brownie Scouts and are proud to have 24 active Scouts as well as 6 Leaders. At our recent awards ceremony, 4 of our Brownie Scouts, Madelyn Bull, Talia Bedolla, Destiny Rollins, and Cassy Tellez, achieved the highest honor possible for their level! They received Summit Pins for their efforts in completing 3 Journeys. Each Journey contains 3 educational badges but also requires a Take Action Project where Scouts find meaningful ways to impact the lives of others and make the world a better place. Our Juniors are currently working on their highest honor, the Bronze Award, with a project intended to provide at least 50 comfort bags to local foster children. Each backpack will contain personal hygiene items and a blanket or stuffed toy. To fund their project, the girls have held a car wash and reached out to local businesses for assistance with great success.
Did you know the Girl Scout Slogan used since 1912 is, “Do a good turn daily.”? This slogan is a reminder of the many ways girls can contribute positively to the lives of others. During cookie season, our girls have voted to give back to our community in several ways. In our Gift of Change, cookie funds will be used to purchase a kid sized table and chair set for the children’s section of the Safford Public Library. The have also allotted $386 to purchase hygiene supplies for local school nurses to be distributed to youth in need.
On Sunday 1/26, Girl Scouts sold cookies at FUMC and also collected donation boxes to be mailed to Airman Chandler Hunter. We are proud to report that with your generous support we collected 2 full cases of cookies, 24 boxes, to be shipped overseas! Girl Scout Troop 386 thanks you for your support of the Hunter Family.
Several of our Troop 5023 scouts were able to attend an Emergency Preparedness campout and showcase their scouting skills! The scouts brushed up on first aide, signaling, compass skills, fire safety and camp gadgets. Troop 5023 earned top honors scoring 199 of 200 possible performance points. As the more experienced scouts, our youth exemplified excellent technique as they conducted both the flag raising and retirement ceremonies. They greatly enjoyed spending time with scouts from other units.
