Troops needed for Flag Ceremony at Highest Awards Celebrations



** UPDATE: We now have troops to do the Flag Ceremony in the Metro Denver, Pikes Peak, and Northern & Northeastern Colorado regions. Thank you to everyone who offered to help!

Submitted by GSCO Highest Awards Manager Aimee Bianca,

Highest Awards Celebrations are right around the corner! We cannot wait to honor all the girls who have earned their Bronze, Silver, or Gold Award in the next year.

We need troops to volunteer to lead the Girl Scout Promise and Law and Pledge of Allegiance, and do the opening and closing flag ceremony at each event. It would be best to have at least four girls volunteer for this exciting opportunity, but we can work with a larger group easily. Three girls are needed to be the flag bearers and carry the flags and one girl is needed to be the “caller”. Additional girls will act as the color guard.

Girl Scouts of Colorado will provide scripts and flags at each celebration. We ask that you arrive at least a half an hour before the event begins to practice and set up. It would be best to have a troop volunteer who is not being recognized for an award this year but is excited about participating in the future.

Please email as soon as possible and no later than Monday, April 3rd if you girls are interested in this opportunity.
