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.
"You must do the thing you think you cannot do."

Election Day . . . Is there a better day to connect??

On Monday, Brownies earned their Connect Key, the second key in the 3 key Brownie Quest. The connect key chant is :

The Connect Key!

That’s more than me.

It’s my arms and

your arms.

Linking together,

we’re free.

We discovered how we connect with our circles of caring, with "me" in the middle, families, friends, neighbors and the community surrounding them. We connect with others by showing that we care and are leaders by working to make a change for the better in our world.

This week, Brownies need to finish their chapters in the Brownie Quest Book and also look at pages 40 - 43 of how different people connected in their world and Took Action to make a difference.

Please talk with your Brownie about things in our community that we can do to serve and help others. We talked about some of the activities that we have done in the past. This year, we want our troop to help decide on what service project we will do in November/December.

We are going to work on "Taking Action" over the next few weeks as well as begin setting cookie selling goals. We want to connect and make a difference with our cookie sells this year as well.

Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions or share any ideas that you may have for service projects.

Check out some of these sites for ideas:

One girl, one day, one action at a time, we can make a difference.

Creating leaders of tomorrow, one Brownie at a time.

Thank you for sharing your Brownie with us.
