Investiture 2015

18Our annual Investiture ceremony was held earlier this month.  It is a time for us to get together, with our younger sister troop, and re-dedicate ourselves for the troop year. As a troop we’ve come up with a rope-n-ribbon tradition, symbolizing we are all part of a something BIGGER.

You can read about the ceremony and see photos of our younger sisters here.

But, what we leaders most proud about the ceremony this year was seeing how our big girls have grown into such great Sisters to Every Girl Scout!

Kicking off the year…on the river!

Middle school schedules certainly do tend to get CRAZY!  So, we’ve moved our meeting day and time to a weekend this year and it has definitely opened us up for some amazing opportunities!

Last year we “kidnapped” our Cadettes for a sleepover as their first meeting of the year.  The troop was only 8 girls and it was easy to do something completely unexpected and fun.  So, trying to think of a way to do that again and make it a first meeting “tradition”….we leaders came up with the idea to do something not “normal” rather than a “meeting” for our first get together this year, too!  We live in the beautiful state of Colorado and that means RIVER!

For our first meeting we took the girls on a float trip!  It was a perfect weather day.  There were no rapids, so it was safe and comfortable for all the first-timers and it was a great day for a little river swim!
