We are Daisy Troop # 1028 from Radford, Virginia.

Our troop currently consist of nine girls and two troop leaders. As of now we are all in Kindergarten and will be in first grade in the fall. We have had a very exciting first year in Girl Scouting. We are also anxious to bridge to Brownies (August 19th, 2000) and really begin the fun.

This year we have been learning what it is to be a girl scout. Learning the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Singing lots of new songs and making friends with our sister troop. We have taken several trips to learn about our community. Our last trip was to a local observatory for our Space Day Program and we had a real fun time. Our next trip planned is to a local Restaurant for a Restaurant tour and a buffet lunch. On the same day we will be going to the movie theater for a tour of the movie house and to watch a movie. Other projects that we have done were to make Christmas cards for a retirement home, Valentine Cards for the Veterans home, and for Easter we made origami bunnies for a nursing home.

As part of our bridging requirements we have also been learning about Brownies. Four of our girls just completed "My Body" and "Outdoor Fun" Brownie Try-its. We have a safety meeting with some local nursing students later in June where our whole troop will work on our Safety Try-it. Our first troop camp out is scheduled for August 4-5 and we know that will be lots of fun. During this weekend our troop will be working on our Council Brownie Try-it "Bugs". We will tell you all about it after the camp out. (it is still a secret to us, only the leaders know.)

We have also just started "Patch Trading". We started in May 2000 and already have 20 different council patches. Our goal is hope to obtain all of the council patches within the next three years. During our third Brownie year we will make a patch quilt with them. If you would like to trade council patches, please check our list. Another thing that we have just started to collect are postcards from different troops. Please check for that information too, if you are interested.

Please send us an e-mail to let us know what you think. Hope to hear from you soon.

Yours in scouting
