Make the World a Better Place

Our Daisy Girl Scouts worked to "Make the World a Better Place" today.  We signed up for our town's  annual beautification campaign to "Keep Leesburg Beautiful".  We even had some sibling brothers come along and help with the clean up!

We chose to clean up the elementary school grounds.  Our town provided the safety vests, gloves, and trash bags for the kids to do their work.

Lots of trash was found along the drainage area.
The kids were amazed at how much trash was found, and what kind of trash was on the ground.

Ta-Da!
It was a warm spring afternoon, and everyone worked hard.  The girls earned their "Make the World a Better Place" rose petal.  We also gave them a Community Service fun patch for the back of their vest.

After  our clean-up, we read a letter to our troop from another Daisy troop in Rogers, Arkansas.  We had made some goodies for them previously as an exchange for "Being a Sister to Every Girl Scout".  We got to learn a little bit about where this troop was from and the area where they live.  Then each girl received a little goodie bag with their name on it from the Arkansas troop.  They were so excited!!

Opening their goodie bags.
