National Convention Here I Come!

Yikes! Where have I been?  I’m even asking myself that!  I’ve been living and loving Girl Scouts!  Here is what I’ve been up to:

    • Took my troop girls to an overnighter in the mountains to earn their camping badge and learn about fire safety.
    • Planned and executed three Daisy, Brownie and Junior sessions at the ag education farm where I work.  It is a pleasure to work with my Girl Scout council to put on these workshops that expose the girls to the farm to table, species conservation in farm hedgerows and corridors, and watershed education as it relates to the WOW Journey.  Juniors earned the Energize portion of the Get Moving! Journey.
    • Took my troop girls to an overnighter at the Monterey Bay aquarium where the girls earned their Animal Habitat Badge.  It was an amazing experience that my girls enjoyed very much (me too!)
    • I attended the Girl Scouts Heart of Central California Annual Meeting in February.  I had been to a few annual meetings in my time but never one for Girl Scouts.  It was an honor to listen to a Gold and Silver Award recipient discuss their projects.  I also got to witness a Girl Scout Alumnae receive a 45 year pin!  Something to strive for!
    • The troop had a strong finish to cookie sales!  We did three booth sales and individually the girls reached their sales goals and earned their Cookie CEO badges.  This year’s in-store cookie booth post to follow.  Here is last year’s in-store booth sale.
    • Last but not least {drumroll} I applied, interviewed and was selected to be a National Council Delegate!  I’m going to Utah for the convention in October.  Whoop!

I’m so excited and honored to have the opportunity to represent Girl Scouts Heart of Central California and the Davis Service Unit at the National level.  I’ll have the opportunity to vote on Girl Scout policy that will be put into effect the next three years.  I was able to sign up for pre-session and I’m adding some personal travel to the trip.  I plan to blog, Instagram and Facebook throughout the Convention so I can take all of you with me.  More to come as the date rolls closer.  For more information, visit the convention website.  Pick a strawberry and follow me so you don’t miss a thing:
