A Daisy begins her Girl Scout journey by discovering herself, earning recognitions and connecting with new friends. Kayla, a Daisy from Troop 819 definitely started her Fall Product Sale on the right foot. While selling Fall Product, she met her neighbor, Ellie, a former Girl Scout during the late 1930s.
Ellie shared stories with Kayla about her scouting experience during the Great Depression. Some of the things her troop members made were blankets for troops overseas and rationed food staples like butter, sugar and flour.
“It’s nice to know that some things don’t change…like Girl Scouts helping others and using resources wisely!” says Leticia, Kayla’s mom.
Throughout the long history of Girl Scouting, traditions remain meaningful and important, and are still practiced today. After connecting with Ellie, Kayla learned this first-hand!
