Brownie Troop 1270 is sponsoring our service unit's December Community Service Project:
A MiniFestival of Trees! Filename: j0347155.wmf
Each troop has been asked to decorate a 2' tall tabletop tree with their own troop-made ornaments. The trees will be donated to the Atria or the Gwinnett Medical center pediatric ward(dependsing on how many troops participate.) The decorated tree is due before our December 19th meeting. Therefore, we will do this project as our November 19th craft activity and earning our light blue petal(honest and fair.) The daisies will distribute the beads to one another.  
We will make daisy ribbon ornaments for our tree.
Materials we will need is:
__1 2' tabletop tree
__Glue(I have that)
__Navy blue ribbon (or any dark blue ribbon)
__Yellow ribbon
__Yellow cardstock or construction paper
__Child scissors
I will also supply a blue and yellow bead garnish for our troop.
Please comment on which items you can provide. Thank you. Also, if there was a kaper chart created this past weekend, let me know, so I know which daisy is in charge of what.

Girl Scouts Book Club: Book #1




What’s better than curling up with a good book on a cold winter day? Talking about that book with your friends!

Why not start a Girl Scout book club with your troop or group? Or with other friends and family members? You can read one book each season, and then get together and share your favorite parts, characters, and scenes. Or set up time to IM each other your reactions as you all read along.

You could start with The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, from the seven-book series The Chronicles of Narnia. Like the Harry Potter series, there’s a movie version in the works—it should be out in theaters in December. So challenge your club members to finish the book in time to see the movie!

And as you're reading, share your thoughts with other girls at Girls Only. Tell everyone who your favorite character is, which character you really dislike, and what scene you hope isn't cut from the movie. The questions will change every week or so, so check back often to share your take on the book.

And remember: Reading and talking about this book—or any other book your book club chooses—will count toward the Books Junior Girl Scout Badge. Depending on the book, who you read it with, and how you share your thoughts on it, you can also be earning credit toward the following Junior Girl Scout Badges:

  • Across Generations
  • Being My Best
  • Celebrating People
  • The Choice Is Yours
  • Communication
  • Computer Fun
  • Drawing and Painting
  • Write All About It


Movie Ticket Winners :
to the winners of the Narnia tickets! All of the prize tickets have been won just in time to see the movie this December. Please write in to Girls Only to let us know how you enjoyed the movie.

Juliette's Thanksgiving Adventure

 Image of sad girl walking homeWhen Girl Scouting's founder, Juliette Gordon Low, was little, people fattened and then killed their own Thanksgiving turkeys.  

One November, just before they cut off the family's turkey's head, Juliette convinced her family that brutal decapitation was inhuman. She argued that "Ol' Tom" should be chloroformed first, so he wouldn't feel anything. Her family finally gave in and agreed to do just that. Then they plucked the turkey and put him in the icebox (it takes a long time to pluck out all those feathers, and they were so tired, they figured the rest of the preparation could wait until later). When they opened the icebox the next day, the bird was wide-awake and bolted out of his frozen "cage." The cook, thinking that the bird's plucked, featherless body was a ghost, started screaming and jumped up on top of the stove!
