Daisies To Brownies.

On Saturday morning, The Little Girls celebrated their Bridging Ceremony with their Girl Scout Troop. For their community service project they chose to grow vegetables from seed in a greenhouse and then transplant the starter veggies in a garden. The harvest from their garden will be distributed by a local church through their community outreach food closet. It is a program we as a family are very proud to be a part of. Leaders Kari and Jenee have worked with these girls on this project for five months.

After the troop and families planted the garden, we had a delicious picnic and program to bridge the girls from Daisies to Brownies. The girls sang songs and recited their pledge and honor code.
Then each Little Girl walked across the makeshift bridge as their leaders said sweet and endearing words about them individually. They received their sashes, badges and pins. Little Girls were proud and yet a little shy to be put in the spotlight- it was darling.
They are a tiny troop and the best of friends. These Little Girls have big dreams and are making a difference in their community. Their efforts are inspiring and I couldn't be more proud.
