Continuous Patches You can Earn- 2017 (Girl Scouts Troop 5823)

Know the Law
Know The Law
1. Memorise the Law
2. Lead an opening and closing ceremony for the girl scout meeting including the promise and law by heart

Be Anything, Do Everything
Barbie Be Anything Patch

1. Come to the meeting to fill out the booklet, or do so on your own
2. Research a career you want to do and a woman who did that and then tell the troop about the person and the career. If there is no woman in that field, or no career, share how you can change that!

(The girl will be expected to be able to tell about the career and the person they choose in some detail for a few minutes).

This will be continuous as long as I have booklets and patches to give. These are not replaceable.

3. For the patch, hours can be dispersed among same or different physical activities but the sports specific pins need to have the associated hours with the pin.

5. Anything not done as a troop, does not use troop funds and is the sole financial responsibility of the parents ie: swim or soccer or baseball, etc etc
