Troops needed for flag ceremonies at Highest Awards celebrations

Update as of March 3, 2018:  GSCO only needs flag ceremony Girl Scouts for the celebrations the Pikes Peak and Western Slope regions.

We need a troop to volunteer to lead the Girl Scout Promise and Law, Pledge of Allegiance, opening and closing flag ceremonies at each Highest Awards celebration. Four girls at minimum are needed, three girls to be the flag bearers and carry the flags and one girl 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.

We ask to have a troops volunteer who are not being recognized for an award this year but are excited about participating in the future.

Please email aimee.artzer@gscolorado.org if your girls would like to volunteer for this opportunity.
