Girl Scout honored as exiting Princess at Pow-Wow

If she’s not involved with Girl Scout activities, you just may find HadezbahBrisa B. dancing. Her love of dancing goes past the jazz and tap she has done in the past, but reaches a whole other level and reflects her passion for her culture. HadezbahBrisa, known as Breezy, can be found this weekend dancing at the 13th Annual Table Mountain Rancheria Pow-Wow.
While she will be dancing at the Pow-Wow, Breezy is also being recognized as the Rancheria’s outgoing Junior Princess for 2012.

 Breezy has been the Junior Princess not only for 2012, but also 2011 and 2009.

Junior Princess is an honor that entails a lot of commitment. Breezy has already proven herself to be a determined self starter. She also sold 2,000 Girl Scout cookies this season making her the top seller for Madera county and being recognized as a Girl Scout S.S.S.S.H Girl (Super Sellers Secret Society Honors). She has also earned a Girl Scout Bronze Award for community service, and has started planning for her Silver Award project which will focus on childhood obesity prevention.

Breezy was among the Native American dancers that previewed their Pow-Wow dances on KMPH’s Great Day morning show.
The 13th Annual Table Mountain Rancheria Pow-Wow is June 7-9 and will be honoring Veterans, specifically the United States Air Force. This event is free and open to the public and begins at 6:00 PM Friday evening and goes throughout the weekend until 7:00 PM on Sunday.

Troop earns Bronze Award

Girl Scout Troop 2406  just completed their Bronze Award. They held a Bingo Night at the Orchard Park Assisted Living and held a blanket drive to donate to needy seniors!

The Troop was established in the fall of 2010 with Brownie and Junior Girl Scouts, and just began its third year with Daisy, Brownie, Junior and Cadette Girl Scouts. During the first year the Troop’s leader, Valerie Kessler, wanted to connect the girls to the community. So she contacted Orchard Park Assisted Living (OAL) to see if they would be open to having the girls visit the seniors on a few occasions. The OAL Activity Director, Cheryl Ranzau (a Girl Scout Alum!), was very excited about this partnership. So, in October the girls visited during the Halloween season and then again in December to sing Christmas Carols and present gifts to the seniors. They did so again the second year.

Since the girls already had this connection, they thought it would be nice to work on their Bronze Award Project at OAL. After brainstorming, the girls and the Troop decided to go forward with a Bingo Night, inviting other Girl Scouts from their Service Unit 25 to attend. And since it was the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts, they wanted to work this in too. So, they honored OAL senior women who had been Girl Scouts (Valerie presented them with Girl Scout 100th anniversary pins that evening) and set a goal to collect 100 blankets for needy seniors (and they had the goal) from attendees and had fun playing Bingo.
