BRIDGING CEREMONY
In today’s troop meeting we’ll have a troop-wide bridging ceremony.

Bridging Girl Scouts: get prepared to share last year’s amazing, fun and challenging experiences as well as what you are looking forward to by writing two letters: one letter to a younger girl and a second letter to an older girl. In the first letter you should write 2-3 things you enjoyed about being a girl scout in the previous year and in the second letter 2-3 things you are looking forward to in the year to come. Younger girls can write a short letter and draw a picture. All letters should be brought to the bridging program in a sealed envelope. Address the outside of the first envelope to the level you are leaving and the second envelope to the level into which you are bridging.

Girls bridging to Brownies, Juniors and Cadettes should wear their old vest and bring their new vest to change into at the bridging ceremony. Bridging Girl Scouts will receive the insignia pin for their new level, and bridging award inshaAllah. Girls who are unable to attend the bridging, should inform their troop leader and they will receive their pins and etc. at the following troop meeting inshaAllah.
