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."

Welcome Back!

Question to you: What's Girl Scouts to you?
Your Answers: arts & crafts & badges, eating, animals & snacks, fun stuff & badges, spending time together as friends, snacks, arts & crafts
Over the last 4 - 6 years you have fed over 1000 people, given away over 100 gifts to children, made blankets or scarfs for about 50 people, played with and fed sheltered animals and so much more.
We have lot to look forward to this year.  At our first meeting you decided that each month you will be responsible for leading the meeting(s) for a badge of you choice.  We will meet again on Tuesday, September 14 at 4:30 - 5:30 at the Akin House.  On this day you can pick which month you would like to lead the troop for your patch.
You also decided that you want to do the Sack Lunches again (Yea!) and we will volunteer work at Breakfast on Boulvard and the Hope Center and other service projects throughout this year as the opportunities arise.
The Crop Walk is quickly approaching.  Please think about if you would like to participate in it on September 26 @ 2PM.
If you complete badges throughout the year, post your experience to the blog!  You can all post any time to: theakins.juniors@blogger.com
Happy Scouting!
