Cookie Centennial Dance

Girl Scouts has been celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scout Cookie this year.  The Lexington Girl Scouts dedicated their annual "Me and My Pal" dance to the Girl Scout Cookie Centennial, and I thought you might enjoy some pictures from the party!
Part of the Cadette Troop which organized the dance for the Daisy/Brownie/Junior GS and their escorts

The photo booth is always a hit, and the props sure celebrate cookies!

Round and Round they go under the tutelage of Mr. Jim Banks, dance caller extraordinaire!  How long has he been doing the GS dance?  Even I can't tell you that.  But he's been retired from teaching gym for quite a while now!

Graveyard of GS cookie flavors.  I miss the lemon cremes.  What's your favorite blast from the past?

Girls! Vote for New Badge Designs until Feb 17th

It's important to get kids out in nature.  Here's a great resource I found the other day.  It recommends getting kids out in the wild at least once a year in an effort to bring childhood back!

Troop camping is an important way that Girl Scouting accomplishes this!

Until this Friday, Girl Scouts can vote for the design of the new troop camping badges.  As a GS leader I'm so looking forward to having new camping badges for my troop next year.  Here's the 411, as we used to say...(does 411 even work any more?)  Click here to go to the survey!
