They recently held an awards ceremony and gave out 31 ten year pins to girls! This pretty much means these
girls have been in Girl Scouts since Daisies or Brownies! They also recognized 5 Bronze Award recipients, 14
Silver Award recipients, 9 Gold Award recipients, and 4 Trifecta Award recipients! What a fabulous testimony of
a GREAT troop that is truly volunteer driven. Troop leaders and advisors have mastered the challenge of
keeping girls in the program for a long time – camaraderie, friendship, creating challenges, having fun, letting
the girls be the leaders!!

her best friends. She also said they always had something new, exciting and challenging to do and that kept
Way to go Troop 305! And thanks for inviting me to participate in your awards ceremony – it was an honor to
see so many wonderfully motivated young women willing to step out of their comfort zone to make a difference
in making the world a better place! It is a wonderful feeling to know our world is in your amazing hands!
