Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays, Girl Scouts! We are wishing you a warm, safe holiday with your friends and families. As the holiday season is upon us, we will be taking a short break from the blog. But don’t forget to subscribe to the right – we’ll be back in 2018 with some amazing stories you won’t want to miss!
Happy Holidays to all!!
‘Twas the night before a G.I.R.L. sleepover Christmas, and all through the Girl Scout House
All the girls were stirring, creating smiles for all, even the mouse,
Their patches had been sewn (or Badge-Magiced) on their sashes with care,
And hopes that a new skill-building badge soon would be there,
The Girl Scouts were nestled all snug in their beds
With plans for service projects dancing their heads
And in the corner there sat many camp SWAPS filled caps
And Journey books sat open on those little Girl Scouts’ laps
When all at once one G.I.R.L. jumped, the book falling with a clatter
“I know of a Take Action project we can do that really will matter,
It won’t be easy, it won’t be quick, but it’ll be real smash!
And we can put a pin upon our sash.”
So the Girl Scouts ran out to the new-fallen snow
And danced with great joy of their plans, their eyes all a-glow,
For they would tell their leader of their idea to give back,
And knew that they could help fix something their community did lack.
Then they ran back inside, all wet and cold
And telling their leader of their plans, she/he was sold.
They started making lists for when the morning came,
And finally gave their Bronze Award project a beautiful name.
“Now it’s time for you all to get some good rest,
For this project to work, we need your minds at their best,”
Said their leader with glee
And the girls went to sleep, ready to help you and me.
This is the story of so many Girl Scout nights
For in troop meetings you see minds become very bright lights,
Together we help raise strong G.I.R.L.s for tomorrow
And their excitement and joy we all would do well to borrow.
So thank you to all for what you give all year,
You’re making a difference, and we hold it so dear.
Merry Christmas to all and your families near and far
Your Girl Scout family is with you, wherever you are!
