Investiture and Rededication

We started our Investiture and Re dedication Ceremony with the Girl Scout traditional candle lighting.
  • May the light of the first candle shine as a symbol that Girls Scouts are true to God and their country.
  • May the light of the second candle shine as a symbol that a Girl Scout’s greatest desire is
    to serve those around them.
  • May the light of the third candle shine as a symbol that Girl Scouts are true to their ideals
    as interpreted in the Girl Scout Law.

    This year we currently have 13 new Girl Scouts receiving Investiture recognition (5 Daisy, 6 Brownie, and 2 Junior); and 20 returning Girl Scouts (2 Daisy, 11 Brownie, and 7 Junior). We are so excited to have these girls in our troop and are ready for an awesome Girl Scouting year!

Each of the girls wear a Girl Scout Vest for their uniform and on their vest is a Trefoil Pin. May the three leaves of the trefoil, representing the three parts of the Promise (to honor God and our country, to help people at all times, and to live by the Girl Scout Law), give them the feeling that they are part of a sisterhood that will bring them joy. Also, may this ceremony be a special reminder and lasting memory of the bond that we share in the sisterhood of Girl Scouts.

We finished our time together singing the traditional Girl Scout song "Make New Friends", followed by the Girl Scout Promise, and fellowship of eating cake and snacks.
