Girl Scouts

Our Girl Scout Program has grown by leaps and bounds since last scout year. We currently have 16 kindergarten and first graders in our Daisy Troop and 12 second graders in our Brownie Troop. That’s a total of 28 girls and families we are serving!

As promised the Daisy and Brownie troops have been very busy! We kicked off our scouting year with a cooking and tie dye event in the Fellowship Hall in early October. The girls died their new “uniform shirts” and helped to prepare crockpot chili. The chili was then served by our girls to Macedonia’s team of Habitat for Humanity volunteers the following day. The chili was well received by al the workers on what turned out to be the first real cold and wet day of the season. The Daisy and Brownie troops also participated in the church Trunk or Treat event by running the s’mores station as the fire pit. In November, the girls made fairy houses at Jordon Lake and made bracelets at a beading clinic hosted by JoAnne Bronikowski in the Fellowship Hall. In December our scouts marched in area Christmas parades and joined other area Girl Scout troops to attend a Disney on Ice performance,\. The Brownies participated in community Christmas caroling, and we all celebrated the year end with a Christmas pajama party. The girls made gingerbread houses, Christmas ornaments, at reindeer food, drank warm cider, competed in a Wise Man relay, and collapsed on blankets to watch a Christmas movie, Fun was had by all!

Have you noticed our Daisy Garden in the old tomato garden? Our Daisies are tending the garden and growing vegetables to earn awards and plan to donate the extra food we have from our spring and summer crops. Thankfully God has been helping a lot, keeping our vegetables watered and girls’ cabbage, romaine lettuce, and broccoli all look amazing! They’ve even sampled the lettuce a few times. As part of our Daisy Flower garden journey, the Daisy scouts had a guest beekeeper speaker who taught them the importance of bees in gardens. The beekeeper was even willing to share some of her bee honey with the girls. Yummy!

Our adult volunteers love working with the girls but we’re always looking for new ways to increase their knowledge and involvement in the community t broaden their world. If you have a special skill set, hobby, think your place of employment would be a neat place for our girls to tour, or would like to volunteer in other ways, please contact Angie Gehrt or Cindy Nolte.

For more information, please contact Angie Gehrt (920-585-1500), Cindy Nolte (919-606-6171), or the church office (919-851-1551). If you already know you’d like for you and/or your daughter to be a part of Macedonia’s awesome scouting program, you can join online at:
