There were 49 girls present, representing every level of Girl Scouting. The festivities began with the Investiture Ceremony, designed to welcome new girls into the world of scouting and allow existing Girl Scouts to reiterate their commitment to the organization. Candles were lit and the Girl Scout Law and Promise were recited by all.
Erica Morrison, a troop leader, enjoyed watching her girls during the ceremony. “I'm a new leader this year and watching my girls, down to the youngest Daisy Scout, pledge to live their lives by the Girl Scout Law reminded me why I made the choice to be a Girl Scout volunteer in the first place,” she explains.
After the ceremony, the girls enjoyed crafts and gathered in a circle outside to learn some Girl Scout songs during a sing-a-long. The younger girl scouts particularly enjoyed learning fun camp songs from the older girls and could be heard singing them throughout the rest of the evening.
The event culminated with a first-hand look at the Museum’s 100 Years of Girl Scouting exhibit.
