Girl Scout Dedication Troop 1017 Bridging and Award Ceremony
On Saturday, November 1st, Girl Scout troop 1017 held a bridging and award ceremony in the Japanese Gardens at Birmingham Botanical Gardens. A Girl Scout bridging ceremony celebrates the advancement of Girl Scouts from one level to the next. The beautiful red bridge over the coy pond was the perfect setting as Girl Scouts Emma, Georgia and Perry received Cadette awards, including the Silver Award pin, and then walked across the bridge to receive their bridge to Senior badge and their Senior awards.
A new addition to the troop, Alex, bridged from Junior to Cadette and was welcomed by her new Girl Scout sisters. Brownie Delilah awaited the girls on the other side where she gave them each the yellow rose of friendship before receiving her own Brownie awards. The troop is comprised of some very accomplished girls who earned pins in community service, leadership and service to Girl Scouts. Over the summer, the three older girls earned their Silver Award by creating a pollinator habitat near Birmingham Botanical Gardens Apiary. The day’s ceremony concluded with a photo shoot of Emma, Georgia, and Perry in front of the pollinator habitat.
