Girl Scouts

Kent asked if the girls were involved in Girl Scouting. The answer is yes. Here is a picture of Debra with her group in Littleton.

Julie is the one that did the most in Girl Scouts. Jeanette was also involved in the group of girls as one of the leaders.

Classic Julie here with her uniform donned and her waving.

I played a small roll in the girls activities also. they had a bridging ceremony and I built the bridge. Here you can see Julie is being recognized as she bridges.

Anita participated in Girl Scouts also.

Jeanette was a helper with this group also.

I lost interest in supporting Girl Scouts when the area leadership had a meeting that demonstrated they did not follow the guidelines that were laid out in the Girl Scout Promise and the Girl Scout Law. The principles declared were very near to those of Boy Scouts of America, but the implementation was not even similar. Alcoholic beverages and inappropriate talk were involved in that leader meeting. Jeanette told me of it and we both lost interest in giving support to the national organization.

Jeanette continued to support the girls in their troop meetings and to be a leader.

I asked Debra yesterday what she got from Girl Scouts. She was not able to identify anything other than having to learn to deal with people socially -- she had to learn their names to respond to them.

Do as I say, not as I do.
