SU 51-7 Girl and Adult Recognition
& Bridging Ceremonies
Monday June 9


Doors open: 5:45 pm
Recognitions: 6:00-7:00 pm
Bridging Ceremony: 7:00-7:45 pm
Refreshments: 7:45 – 8:00 pm
Clean-up: 8:00 – 8:30 pm

This year, in addition to adult volunteers, we will be recognizing Girl Scouts who have earned the metal awards (Bronze, Silver and Gold). We also will be recognizing Girl Scouts who are graduating high school seniors.

This will be a multi-level bridging ceremony where all Girl Scouts present are able to participate. In fact, the girls not bridging have very important roles in this ceremony. The non-bridging Girl Scouts have the opportunity to be a part of the release/greet groups, and read a charge or escort a bridging GS.

Instructions for Bridging Ceremony

Girls should wear their current uniform, and if possible, bridging girls should have their new level uniform.

Non-bridging girls will form a horseshoe at end of the bridge and will welcome new GS to their level and bid farewell to those moving up. These volunteers will act as escorts who will assist with doffing of old uniform and donning of new uniform, and as charge readers who will read aloud a poem.  We need at least one reader per level bridging.

Click here for the official Girl Scout dress code policy for girls and adults. 

No girl will be restricted from participating; however, if possible, have the girls wear white/khaki with their uniform.

From Troop Leader Margie Hodas-Walsh:

Senior GS Troop 3610 is inviting Cadette GS troops to attend part of their meetings if they need a Bridging Activity.  We meet Monday nights 6:45-8:30pm.  We meet at individual homes so I will need to coordinate w/ the host Senior GS parent.  We have 3 more meetings left, 3/31, 4/28, & 5/19.

Thank you to all who made the SHARE American Girl Event a success!

The March 1 American Girl event benefiting SHARE was a HUGE success,thanks to coordinator and SU SHARE Manager Tina Anderson!

The girls all had a fabulous time with pre-event activities led by Tamara Siegfried, followed by an awesome session making a bed for their dolls with Devon O’Neal of Cupcakes and Lace! They capped the evening with an American Girl movie before sleeping overnight at Firefly Lodge.

Great work, Tina!!!
