Girl Scout Troop 71134, from Campbell MO, didn’t let a little rain ruin their plans. They celebrated Juliette Gordon Low’s birthday in style while giving back to their community. They spiced up the community parade with a Girl Scout float, decked out in pink.
The girls wanted to participate in Breast Cancer Awareness month, so during decoration discussion they talked of how they could demonstrate their involvement. The girls decided they would be fairies, princesses, and superheroes that all have one wish in common: “A Wish for a Cure.”
After selecting their theme, the girls divided into groups to work on character selection, decorations, and signage that reflected their ideas.
Girl Scout Troop 71134 also made parade give-away bags that held personally designed handwritten letters of interest, Girl Scout information, and treats in hopes of encouraging more girls to join Girl Scouts.
The girls of Girl Scout Troop 71134 had a great time coming up with the decoration ideas, working together to finish the project, riding in the parade, and supporting their community. Later this year, Girl Scout Troop 71134 will stay busy with nursing home caroling, the Christmas parade (where they will debut another float), and a community betterment project in the spring.
Girl Scout Troop 71134 hopes that this peek into their troop’s activities will interest and inspire you to become involved in Girl Scouting which builds girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
