Girl Art: “Why I Love Nature”

Bridge and Water - Simone

As winter creeps towards us, suddenly all the nature around us seems a little more grey, brown and muted. Luckily, in our Seattle office we’re currently hosting an art exhibit from Snohomish Troop 48450 entitled “Why I Love Nature”. We thought we’d share their art with you, so you don’t have to come all the way to our office to see it! Read more

It’s not summer without a parade!

Cadettes on Parade

In celebration of summer (and that quick heat wave that just reminded us all that it really is summer!) we’re bringing you a quick update from one of our troops on the Eastside. And since their story talks about Forever Green, we have to ask – have you taken the Forever Green pledge yet?

Last month 40 girls from Service Units 422 and 423 marched in Redmond’s Annual Derby Days Parade! Girl Scouts in the region have been a part of the parade for several years, but this year the girls marched along under the Forever Green theme. Read more

It has been confirmed by our super-secret ice cream spies. Molly Moon was seen at Girl Scout Camp River Ranch last Tuesday, singing her heart out with a group of very surprised campers. Not only did they get to ask her questions about ice cream and listen to her talk about how much she loves Girl Scout Camp, but they got to pick any flavor they wanted from her ice cream truck! And who handed out the scoops? Molly, of course! Read more

Bellingham area girls’ Orca expedition

Getting Ready for Adventure

Living in the Pacific Northwest, whales are a big part of our natural world; however, many girls never get the chance to actually see whales. Thanks to the generosity of Captain Terry Buzzard of Island Mariner Cruises and the Everett O. Williams Foundation, our girls in the Bellingham area were able to enter a drawing where they could win a trip on a whale watching tour. Girls from five troops were selected in the drawing and won tickets for the trip: Troop #43653, Troop #42988, Troop #43525, Troop #52016 and Troop #42579! This week the winners got to claim their prize and more than 70 girls, parents, volunteers and staff headed to the San Juan Islands to try their luck at spotting whales! Read more
