Girl Scouts hold annual end-of-year and bridging ceremony


Isabella Stout with Troop No. 969 bridged to Adult Level Girl Scouts. Her briding gift was a vase of roses.

Girl Scouts with Woods Service Unit recently held their annual end-of-year and bridging ceremony at the Act 1 Building. In front of family members, the scouts told everyone what they enjoyed doing this year in scouting, community service and fun activities. Girls ready to bridge to the next level of scouting also held their bridging ceremony.

The leaders and their assistants were recognized for their leadership and commitment to the girls for this past year. As their thank you gift, the leaders received a Girl Scout fleece vest. Steve Maier, the hut coordinator, received a Girl Scout knife for his commitment for the year.

The leaders this year are Tani Tanio, Katie Church, Leah Maier, Mandi Whitely, Heather Hall and Kellie Thiesing, Brownie; Amber Maier and Tani Tanio, Junior; Christina Harris, Connie Anton, Magen Lehr, and Kathi Jenlink, Cadette; Judy Neilson, Ruth Anne Fox, and Jennifer Rich, Senior/Ambassador; Lacey Johnson, Timberlake Scouts; and Amber Wilhite, Cherokee Scouts.

The service unit also recognized two leaders for the year who showed exemplary service to the team. Mandi Whitely was recognized as the leader of the year for the work with her Brownie troop, and Christina Harris was recognized as the volunteer of the year for all her help this past year with service unit events, especially the cookie rally.

The Girl Scout Council brought up their mobile shop for the girls to be able to spend their cookie money. Shopping for T-shirts, stuffed animals, jewelry, lunch boxes, kits, and trinkets was a huge hit.
