Brownies & Daisies Go Bananas at Fire Engine Volunteer Department 39

The Brownies and Daisies had a great visit at Fire Engine Volunteer Department 39 on March 13. The Daisies earned the Respect Authority Petal and the Brownies completed their First Aid Badge. Two women EMTs and a woman firefighter spoke to them about how and when to call 911, the importance of wearing helmets when riding bicycles, how to apply band aids and demonstrated putting on the firefighter gear apparatus and air tanks. Since Girl Scouts are so well known for their fabulous songs and singing everywhere, the girls concluded the session by singing “Go Bananas” as the firefighters joined in. The visit ended with everyone climbing onto the fire trucks. This was their most favorite field trip of the year so far.

We Hit the Target! Next Troop Meeting on Friday, October 19

The next troop meeting is on Friday, October 19, 2012 at 6PM in classroom 2. Girls should be on time and in uniform. Also remember that Troop 3480 meets every other Friday at PGMA.

Here’s a quick photo recap of our Archery Workshop last Saturday at the Adelphi Manor Archery Range. Kudos to Sr. Yasmine who set up an excellent program providing the girls with the Islamic perspective on archery and to Park Ranger Devin’s patient and supportive instruction. Congratulations to the participating girls who earned their archery patch. If you’ve caught the archery bug, let Sr. Yasmine know! You can also download Saracen Archery — an English version and exposition of a Mameluke work on archery from A.D. 1368.
