Memorial Day 2021

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.

Girl Scouts in the Gardens

The sunflowers in Tudek Park are continuing to grow, but we still need your help to make our Sunflower House a reality! In addition to helping with watering, we would also like to add a border of painted rocks. Troops (or individual families) are invited to paint rocks and leave them around the edge of the plot. We encourage groups to use these (or similar) rocks in order to provide uniformity. Rocks should be clear coated in order to protect against the elements.

Summer Updates

Summer is fast approaching so be sure to finish up your Spring Outdoor Challenge and put your patch and rocker orders in!

The Service Unit has returned to in-person Service Unit meetings and we would love to see a representative from your troop at Nittany View Park on June 13. Service Unit meetings are a great way to meet other troop leaders, learn about local opportunities, and find out what the rest of the State College Girl Scout community is up to. If you are interested in joining a Service Unit committee, we want to see you! We encourage anyone attending to please RSVP.
