October 31st is usually a day of getting dressed up in crazy costumes, going to Halloween parties, going trick-or-treating, eating lots of candy, going to corn mazes, going on hayrides, going to haunted houses, etc....but for those who are Girl Scouts, October 31st symbolizes something more important! Juliette Low, founder of the Girl Scouts, was born on October 31st! In honor of her birthday, our Girl Scout troop is going to participate in a nation-wide project that was started by a troop in Wichita, Kansas. It is called Birthday-in-a-bag. Our girls have decided that they want to donate their birthday-in-a-bag to help a very special child! After they do so, I will tell you all about it! :)
Fall is here! :) I am so excited. I love this time of year! I love the trees changing colors, the grass dying (and my allergies to grass fading!), the pumpkin patches, the yummy food, the holidays, the weather....pretty much everything that fall has to offer. I LOVE FALL!
In celebration of the Girl Scouts 100th year anniversary and in honor of our hard-working girls in our troop, our girls are creating a troop cookbook that we are going to sell to raise money for summer camp or possibly some other trip. We are needing recipes! They can be any kind and come from anywhere. All contributors or recipe creators, please put your name how you want it printed in the book, your city/state, and if you have any Girl Scout affiliation (parent of a GS, leader, asst. leader, volunteer, current GS, former GS, etc.) and if you remember what troop, council, or city/state your troop was in, that would be great too! We need as many recipes as we can get! We need to start getting this put together and hopefully have it sent out for publication by December or sooner. We will be taking pre-orders and also will be selling extra copies. If you are interested in contributing a recipe or more, or if you would like to put your name down for the list of pre-orders, please email me at GSTroop20074@gmail.com. My name is Jami. Thanks!
