The Willow Springs Elementary School Girl Scouts held an investiture/rededication ceremony on Friday, Dec. 7, 2012 at 7 p.m. in the school’s cafeteria. Investiture welcomes new members into the Girl Scout family for the first time.

Rededication is a renewal of their commitment to the Girl Scout Promise and Law for those girls who have already been invested. Girl scouts get a sense of traditions and sisterhood, providing something for the younger scouts to look forward to.

Girl Scout Troop Coordinator Kim Klain moderated the ceremony.

After all the Girl Scouts lined the stage steps, the Junior Girl Scout Troop 4405 began with the flag ceremony. Family and friends who attended the event listened as the girls recited the Girl Scout Promise, the Girl Scout Law and sang “Make New Friends”. Daisy Girl Scouts received their pin and were awarded with earned petals. Rededication patches were awarded to those girls already invested in Girl Scouts.
