As part of their Bronze Project, girls from Troop 40170 designed a Gabriel Patch for girls who want to help expectant mothers. Girls can earn this patch by learning about organizations that help expectant or new mothers and then helping expectant or new mothers either by volunteering time or donating supplies.
Proceeds from the patch sale will be used to buy supplies for the Gabriel Project at Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church. The Gabriel Project works with women in crisis pregnancies to provide them with needed supplies and support. Troops wishing to learn more about the OLV Gabriel Project can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to all the troops and families who helped us honor our fallen soldiers by either laying flowers in the cemetery or participating in the walk to the graves during the Boalsburg Memorial Weekend activities.
Throughout the weekend, Girl Scouts and their families stopped by the cemetery to lay flowers and pay their respects to our fallen. On Monday evening, we joined the vintage ladies, Scouts BSA, and the Boalsburg Fire Company in walking to the cemetery from the town center to patriciate in a short ceremony.
As Girl Scouts we have two opportunities to participate in the Memorial Weekend services and celebrations.
On Saturday, May 29th, we are invited to lay flowers on the graves of all the soldiers resting in the Boalsburg Cemetery. The flowers will be in a bucket for scouts to pick up anytime Saturday afternoon. Please let us know how many scouts you will have in attendance so we can make sure to have enough flowers.
On Monday, May 31st, we are invited to participate in the Ladies Walk to the Graves. We join other groups besides the vintage ladies such as the military reenacters, local Boy Scout troops, local military groups and many others. We help lead the townspeople to the cemetery. The ceremony last about an hour to an hour and a half and ends with cannon fire. This is a very solemn ceremony.
State College Girl Scouts were in the holiday spirit this December. Whether they were assisting with Toys for Tots wrapping, Singing at Brookline, assisting at the Elves Workshop, creating ornaments for the Arboretum’s Winter Celebration, or Decorating trees for Festival of Trees
