Fresno troop 2385 donates to local charities

Post by: Danielle Cash

[break]

Fresno troop 2385 decided at one of their meetings they wanted to donate to the families at Ronald McDonald House Charities Central Valley and to the homeless at the Evangel home. So the girls setup a shopping trip! They spent 2 hours and over $440 on items for two charities. Then they organized the items they bought into two piles for the  two different charities. The Ronald McDonald House items included toiletries, food, beverages, clothing, books and games. Plus 20 boxes of cookies leftover from their cookie sale! Then the girls packed socks, hats, soaps, razors and snacks for the homeless at the Evangel home.  Troop 2385 had a great time putting together the care packages for the two charities. Below are pictures of the girls with the items they purchased.

Lamont troop 507 goes camping!

Post by: Lily Cortes

[break]

Lamont Girl Scout troop 507  went camping in July to Lopez Lake in Arroyo Grande. They used their proceeds from the Girl Scout cookie sale. The first day they set up their tents, made a bonfire and cooked  delicious s’mores. While on the trip the girls learned how to fish, went to a local water slide park, sang songs by the campfire and saw many deer and wild turkeys. They went to the Bee’s Knees show and learned about the different types of bees, and why they are important to our environment.  The weather was wonderful  and the girls can’t wait to go camping next year. It was a great life experience. They thank everyone who made this possible by buying Girl Scout cookies. 10 girls went on the camping trip –  Aalijah , Alexis, Jacquelyn , Monique , Daisy , Vanessa, Jasmin, Victoria , Carolina,  and Katelynn.

Local troop participate in largest Girl Scout gathering…EVER

Girls from Troop 394 traveled to Washington DC, June 6-June 11 touring the Nation’s Capital and participating in the largest gathering of Girl Scouts EVER. Over 250,000 Girl Scouts from around the world gathered on the National Mall, Saturday June 9, 2012 to mark the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts of the USA. Every USA Girl Scout Council was present and Troop 394 represented Girl Scouts of Central California South. Scouts, friends, family and alumnae joined to mark the 100th anniversary with a sing along. While the Guinness World Record for the largest sing-along and flashmob is still being confirmed, the girls loved learning the song “Ignite” and dance steps to prepare for the flash mob.

[break]

The trip was organized and led by leader Sandy Patrick. They saw many DC sights including the Lincoln Memorial, Mount Vernon, Arlington Cemetery, Vietnam Memorial, and received special entry to the National Archives for all Girl Scouts. Washington DC was full of Scouts and the troop was able to meet girls from every state in the nation and from other countries such as England and Singapore. The girls said the best part of the trip was SWAPPING and meeting all the other girls from all over the world. Troop 394 can’t wait for their next trip!

Girl Scout troop honors volunteer

Guest Blog Post by : Claire from Troop 437

[break]

Troop 437 was working on their  Cadette GS Way badge, and they were to honor a Girl Scout volunteer. Troop 437 does not  know Christie personally, but she serves us indirectly through her SU Product chair position. To get to know her, each Girl Scout from Troop 437 did a phone interview with at least one person who knows Christie. Most of the information came from her co-leader, parents, and our SU Manager  Melody Roberson. They compiled the information into a program to honor “Queen Christie”. They also adorned her with queen-like props made out of cookie boxes.

[break]

[break]

To (kindly) ambush Christie, we showed up early to her normal meeting place and time and hid behind the stage with the help of Sandra Renfro. My girls waited in near darkness for her to arrive. A repeated comment about Christie in the interviews was that she has a great laugh. We kept waiting…and then…there was the laugh! We knew she had arrived, and Sandra told us it was time to take our places. It was a fun surprise.

[break]

[break]

 Part of the program script from Queen Christie Day:

“Girl Scout Troop 437 is here to honor a special person. We’ve done some research into her background and this is what we found…

[break]

She is…

amazing, funny, considerate, dedicated, friendly, awesome, fun, sincere, good to be around, intelligent, organized, generous, enthusiastic, caring and inspiring.

[break]

These bracelets represent her ability to know what girls’ needs are,  how to encourage them and how to adjust to every girl’s needs.

[break]

This necklace represents her devotion to scouting.

[break]

This scepter represtents her infectious and unforgettable laugh.

[break]

These glasses represent her helpfulness to all Girl Scouts.

[break]

This crown is to show how grateful and overjoyed everyone is to have her in Girl Scouts. “

[break]

Thanks for helping to extend the honor of Queen Christie Day! It is a well deserved position for an outstanding volunteer who is a splash of sunshine, kindness, and laughter in our SU and in her troop.

Girls Scouts collect canned food for 100th Anniversary

Girls have fun at Twilight Camp

Service Unit 30 hosted a Twilight Camp June 18 – 21 from 6:00pm to 8:45PM at the Fresno Sportsmen’s Club. Twilight Camp is where girls get an introduction to the things that have made Girl Scouting such a strong, safe, fun tradition.

[break]

[break]

Camp opened each night with a flag ceremony followed by  Service Unit 30′s world famous relays. The girls then broke into small groups. Each day’s activities revolved around Girl Scout traditions during camp. Activities included things like: making  lemmi sticks, roasting smores, singing songs, and they made situpons. They also played a game called “Lick It & Stick It” where the girls licked marshmellows and stuck them to their face.  After that, they ran with them on to see who could make it without the marshmellows falling off.  it was quite a site!!!  Thursday night they held a Rededication Ceremony for all Girl Scouts. Girls made new friends, saw many of their old ones, and learn while they are having fun.
