Parker

Our troop of Daisy Girl Scouts delivered more than 100 packages (105 to be exact) of Girl Scout Cookies to Parker Task Force, a local food bank. The girls got to learn why, how, for whom, and what Parker Task Force does.  All volunteers, just like in Girl Scouts, give their time varying from hours to months out of a year.
Donations, in addition to foods, are items such as blankets, pet food and supplies, diapers, and school supplies for children. Parker Task Force helps in our community, on average, 220 people a week!

Parker Task Force provides a monthly “Needs Request List” for items that are needed, to help accommodate those that are unable to purchase on their own. These requests have been fulfilled each month by the generous members of this community.

The girls were touched by the story and kindness that they elected Parker Task Force for their food donation recipient, for the month of April!  Nice job young ladies!

Brownies explore water and life in Africa

Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs Daisy/Brownie Troop 43483 learned about water and life in rural Africa as part of the Brownie Wonders of Water Journey. Guest speakers Jim and Carol Nussbaumer, who work with the non-profit Marion Medical Mission, talked about the daily life of women and girls in Malawi. Videos and photos of the poor water conditions and their consequences (health issues, distance to water sources, lack of education, etc.) were shared.

Girls enjoyed trying on the traditional fabric “chitengi,” which women wear in Malawi. Then, they discovered how difficult it is to lift and carry a bucket of water on your head! They had fun with a relay race carrying a half-full bucket and gained an appreciation of the clean, convenient water they have in their own homes.

Town of Frisco Community Service Officer Kyle visited our Daisy troop meeting and helped us learn about “respecting authority.” We did an activity on good and bad manners while we had snack. The girls shared examples of authority figures at home, school, and in our community. Then, Officer Kyle talked about the importance of rules and safety in our community.

Our new Daisy troop is just beginning to learn the Girl Scout Law. At our last meeting, we met Lupe the Lupine and learned about what it means to be honest and fair. Then, we practiced being fair by sharing the special pink star beads when making friendship bracelets! It just takes simple lessons to teach our Daisies how to put the Girl Scout Law into practice.

We would like to invite Brownies and Daisies to our Brownie/Daisy Fun Day. We will have each level do a Journey. The Brownies will do “Brownie Quest.” The Daisies will do the “5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals” Journey. The cost is $7 per girl (included fun patch, but not the Journey Patch). If the leaders want a fun patch, they cost $2 a piece. The event is on Saturday, November 5, 2016 from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. We ask that parents just drop off or find something quiet to do so the Junior/Cadette leaders will not be nervous. Each troop must have at least one leader stay with them. We will not serve lunch, but we will be serving snack. Please email troop62215@gmail.com for more info. Space is limited so RSVP soon. Last day to RSVP is 10/24/2016.
