Troop 3480 Daisies to Plant Flower Garden at PGMA

Asalaamu Alaikum,

Daisy scouts had a great time at the Chesapeake Children’s Museum in Annapolis last month where they earned two more petals, mashaAllah. We plan to make the trip again next fall for new Daisies and Daisies that missed the opportunity.

This month, Daisies will work on petals: Courageous and Strong (Red), Make the World a Better Place (Rose), and Respect Myself and Others (Purple).


On May 17, the Daisies will be planting a flower garden! In order for your daughter to earn her petals for this activity she must attend the meeting on the 17th as well as:

  1. bring a potted flower plant (try Home Depot or Lowe’s and it should be a perennial ) that is any one of the colors of the Daisy petals
  2. be dressed to work outside
  3. bring gardening gloves (on sale at JoAnn Fabrics).

We want to end the scouting year with the Daisies completing as many petals as possible, inshaAllah. Some surprises will be given out at Troop 3480’s End of Year program in June.

We look forward to seeing all our girls at Troop 3480’s next troop meeting: May 17, 2013, 6:30 – 7PM.

Ma salaama
