Troop #21173 learns about giving back

Troop #21173 was excited to earn their “respect myself and others” petal this year. The second year Daisies learned about the importance of dental care to complete their petal requirements.

Dr. Steven Vaughan, D.D.S. spoke to the girls about dental health. Following his presentation, the girls completed a service project as well.

“In order to have the girls begin thinking about badges as Brownies where you can earn a badge but also ‘give service to it,’ we felt [a service project] was a small way to introduce the concept to them,” said Troop Leader Diana B.

Dr. Vaughn’s office donated supplies, and the Daisies assembled two dental care bags each for Christian Community Service Center. Diana says this was definitely their favorite part of the day and that it was nice for the girls to share with others what they had learned about dental care.
