Holyoke Girl Scout Troops gathered Thursday, Feb. 24 at Holyoke Elementary School Cafeteria for their annual Investiture/Rededication Ceremony. The ceremony is a commitment, by each new and continuing girl, to live the Girl Scout Promise and Law each day and in every way.
The Daisy Troop took turns following a daisy stem runway to large petals at the end, forming a large flower of girls. Led by Ravon Krueger, they held artwork posters with flowers and the Daisy Days of the Week.
They then performed a poem, complete with actions, for all of the parents, grandparents and guests who attended in support of the girls.
The Brownie Troop, led by Sarah St. Martin, took center stage to share the Girl Scout Promise. Each held a letter to spell out GIRL SCOUTS and took turns explaining how Girl Scouts plays a role in their daily lives. Three girls read parts representing the Girl Scout Promise. They completed their performance by singing a song with actions.
The Junior Troop added to the event by conducting a candle ceremony. They took turns lighting 10 candles to represent the 10 parts of the Girl Scout Law. They recited the parts of the Law and gave a brief description of how each one applies to their personal experiences.
The ceremony was followed by a reception including cakes designed with the Girl Scout logo. Each girl then invited their guests to join a large friendship circle and participate in a friendship squeeze to complete the gathering.
Girl Scouts is dedicated to growing girls of courage, character and strength. If anyone is interested in helping with leadership or has any questions, please call Ravon Krueger at 520-9182.
