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.

Her Story

Monday, October 6 we will do the "Her Story" try-it.
Over this weekend, if you have a chance to talk to your Brownie about important issues that you have faced in your lifetime and have her ask 4 other women about what they believe are the 3 most important issues facing women today. Try to have them ask women of different ages, from teens to women over 70 years old. Try to talk to women that are the same race or ethnic group than your own (to help get a unique perspective). Ask them to think about how the answers are similar or different. Please help them write down some notes or review the answers with them so that they can talk about it during opening circle on Monday.
We will read the Juliette Gordon Low story on Monday, make a "Your Story" time-line, and work in groups to Create Tales from favorite fables and fairy tales to see how/if they would be different if written by girls/women now. They will tell their stories or act them out.
We have a fun and exciting Monday meeting planned. Looking forward to seeing you all!
