Sunday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter May 7, 2017

This trip we had 20 Juniors and Cadettes along with a dozen adults. Saturday was the monster day with a dolphin cruise (turned out great) and the night cap was a ghost tour of Savannah that the girls ate up. Not exactly the same itinerary as perhaps the Boy Scouts would have chosen but it was fun being a tourist with my daughter and her friends.

Sophia had a good time cooking up our dinner Friday night over the grill. This was the troops first time really doing a serious camping trip so everything was not a well oiled machine but we made the girls do the work and they enjoyed jumping in and doing the work. Saturday morning they cooked about four pounds of breakfast meat and none of it went to waste.

The Thread Head in me got excited when I spotted this patch in a display during the tour. It might not look like much but this is one of the original Girl Scout proficiency badges that Juliette Gordon Low brought back to the USA from England to help kick start the advancement program in the first years of the program. These are extremely tough to find today and I’ve only ever seen a handful.

I have auctions ending soon on eBay including a bunch of flaps and JSPs. My goal is to get the store up to 9,000 items by the end of the month but since I’m also running a sale in the store it’s sorta like walking on a treadmill to hit that goal.
