Our troop celebrates ten Junior Girl Scouts from three
different Tigard, Oregon
schools. Our home council is the Columbia River Girl Scout Council
Oregon/Southwestern Washington. Many of us have been together since
Brownies, and even
Daisies. We have two members new to Girl Scouting this year. Our
troop includes Julia C.,
Chrissy D., Hikari K., Kim M., Jamie O., Janae O., Shawna R., Tiffany S.,
Karyn S., and Carolyn
W. We are just learning what it is to be Junior Girl Scouts and
selected two badges to complete
by spring: Horse Lover and Pet Care. We will work on the Sports
badge this spring. We created
our own troop conduct contract following decision making skills we
are learning in the troop. As
invited guests, we shared our Rededication/Investiture ceremony this
year with a sister service
unit in the Santiam GSC of Salem, Oregon. It was our first activity
outside of our home council!
Our leaders are very active, and our parent resources include several
moms and many dads.
Our troop served Thanksgiving dinner to the needy and homeless at
Dalton's Family Restaurant
in Tualatin, Oregon, on Thanksgiving Day. It was a lot of fun!
We are looking forward to learning how to build home pages and
teaching our parents how to
build their own too.
Our leaders Sherry S. and Eileen
W. are looking for new ideas for closing ceremonies.
Please share your favorite
ones with us.
