From the Littlest Voice: Saying Thanks to Those Who Help

Tonight my Girl Scout troop baked cookies, decorated cupcakes, and made cards to show their appreciation for the people who help our community. It was an idea from one of our daisies - a kindergartner - she wanted to make cupcakes for the police officers. After talking with the whole troop, the girls planned on including the police officers, EMTs, and firefighters in our small town.

I thought this was such an amazing idea, so I went BIG! We ended up having so many yummy goodies, that we made plates to give to the local library and food bank as well, since they also help make our community better.

I was hoping to have a picture of all the girls with the packages ready to go, but as with most things Girl Scouts, it was too chaotic. Girls, sugar, and giggles going everywhere! Just know I am incredibly proud of these girls. This was an idea that came from one of the littlest girls in our troop. When asked what we, as a troop, can do to serve our community, her first thought is to do something for the people who give their time day in and day out to make sure that we have a wonderful place to live. What an amazing thought, one that probably doesn’t cross the minds of people much older than she. I’m so happy that we could make this happen for her.
These girls remind me over and over that from the littlest voices come the mightest ideas … if only we will take the time to listen.
