It’s time for an annual Girl Scout event. For the last 20 years we have had a volunteer retreat and invited all leaders that are active in our service unit to take part. We usually go to one of the local Girl Scout camps. We’ve run into a problem this year however and if you live in the greater Seattle area you know what I mean. The weather is not cooperating! The camps are snowed and iced in and the roads are not safe to travel. We have planned this event for nearly six months so it’s a bit disappointing. We will however do a one day local event and hopefully most people will be able to attend. By Saturday we are hoping the roads are passable. With a little warming and some rain all things are possible.
This is a significant year in the Girl Scout calendar. We are celebrating 100 years of Girl Scouting. We’ve tried to plan some games, activities and food to tie into our theme. One of the activities will be to communicate with semaphore flags. I’ve made the flags and have the cheat sheet. It should be a fun adventure!
