Last weekend, more than 1,500 girls and volunteers prepared for the Centennial Day of Service by attending one of three fall Centennial Celebrations. The events were held at Camp Elk River in Zimmerman, MN, Tweite’s Pumpkin Patch in Byron, MN and Holmberg Orchard in Vesta, MN.
The weather was gorgeous, and volunteers helped lead hundreds of Girl Scouts in water quality activities, one of four steps required to earn the Centennial Day of Service Patch. Girls participated in several activities including learning about water careers, making a water filter, and pledging to fight against pollution to make a difference in their communities.
Each site offered something unique: Girls could go on a hayride, pick apples, explore a corn maze or pumpkin patch, and even make their own scarecrows.
Thank you to all of the volunteers and everyone who came out and showed their support for the upcoming Centennial Day of Service. Be sure to register and take action with the Girl Scouts on October 13!
