End-of-year ceremony a fun family occasion for troops in Eugene/Springfield

Special thanks to Megan Bassett for sharing this story from a special recognitions ceremony earlier this spring!

Daisy, Brownie, Junior and Cadette girls from Spanish-speaking troops in the Eugene/Springfield area had a wonderful end of year recognition ceremony and celebration at the Eugene Service Center on April 19th.  This was an occasion for the whole family as new Girl Scouts received their pins and the girls who participated in the cookie program received their patches and earned incentives. After the candle lighting ceremony and receipt of recognitions, everyone enjoyed a potluck dinner. About 30 people attended.
