Thirteen Girl Scouts on the Western Slope participated in the annual flag retirement ceremony on Saturday, May 21.
The girls learned how to properly put to rest worn and tattered flags and performed the ceremony on flags collected in a community drive.
Hundreds of Girl Scouts of all ages from across the state walked across the Royal Gorge Bridge in Cañon City on Saturday in a special Girl Scout bridging ceremony as they move up from one program level to the next.
Bridging ceremonies are anticipated by Girl Scouts nationwide and are steeped in rich, long-standing tradition. In fact, just last Saturday, May 7th, thousands of Girl Scouts from across the country crossed the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco in a similar type bridging ceremony: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/incontracosta/detail?entry_id=88603.

Girls learning how to take care of their bodies and how to appreciate the unique beauty of each other — that’s what Troop #1993 had in mind when they planned a day at the spa. The troop visited Empire Beauty School where they learned how to take care of their hair, had their hair cut and/or styled, learned how to do pedicures and manicures. What fun! Pizza rounded out the whole experience. What a great bonding event for the troop!
