Christmas Ornaments - "Girl Scouts"

Girl Scouting was a tremendous influence in my life. Not as a child, since I was not included in the troop when it split and we never did find a leader.
When we returned from Australia, DD-Kr entered 3rd grade. The first week of school, she was invited to join a GS troop. That was a defining moment in the life of our family. We all participated in GS activities for the next 15 or so years. There was support for girls and women in all areas of the Scouting movement and I saw many people changed by this support. My own girls benefited greatly. These were a few of the ornaments given to me in exchanges and for thank-yous. Just hanging them every year brings a flood of memories - people, activities, events, and emotions.
If you have never worked with girls and adults in Scouting, give it a go.
