This troop has been working on "A Stitch in Time" patch during January and February. They cleverly constructed sewing boxes (baby wipes boxes) each with a built-i- n pin cushion. The boxes are stocked with all the necessary sewing tools which also include a handmade Brownie print material needle case. The girls have learned three basic handstitches as well as sewing on two different types of buttons. At home, each girl was required to complete a simple mending project for her family.

Brownie troop is concentrating on safety by JoAnn Brown I have been a Brownie leader of 1st and 2nd grade girls in Troop 1071 for the past 3 years. This year I have been teaching the girls safety. On safety I have been teaching the girls how to dress for winter and summer. I feel that the girls have not been getting enough of this at home or at school since many of my girls came to Scout meetings this year during the winter dressed in summer clothes. We teach safety for when parents are not at home such as how to answer the phone and the door if a youngster is at home alone. I feel the kids need to know how to take care of themselves when an. adult is not around. after-scho- ol Our troop has earned 3 of the new "try-itand in the future we will be learning how to take care of our pets.

Some of the girls favorites were Annie Jump Cannon, Grandma Moses, Elizabeth Browning, Eleanor Roosevelt, Emily Dickinson and Marie Curie. The reports the girls wrote were shared ih a troop meeting. One of he requirements for this patch was to invite someone over 70 years of age to a meeting. We asked Leona Christensen to come and share with us what he life was like when she was 9 years old. The girls asked questions about "What classes did you have in school, "What kind of transportation was special gift for Mother's Day. "A Stitch in Time" is an exclusive Utah Girl Scout Council Patch.

Helen Taylor Tioop 190 in 1975 when they took a similar trip to Mexico. Although she is at an age when most women retire from their obligations with organizations, Helen continues to serve the youth of the community in many ways, but we are proud of her hours, talents and skills she has used for the Girl Scouts over the years. In 1964 she was awarded the "Thanks" badge, which is the highest adult honor - given in Girl Scouting. Why sponsor a Girl Scout Troop? Sponsorship is a voluntary association between a Girl Scout Council and a community, on behalf of girls and adults whose aims and objectives are compatible. This association helps to ensure that all girls in the community, regardless of race, creed, nationality or factors, have an opportunity to participate in Girl Scouting. The benefits of sponsorship to an organization or. business are: involvement with activities essential to the well being of the community, opportunity for additional community involvement, service, visibility, and recognition, speakers for programs and meetings and the satisfaction of helping girls grow. The sponsor's responsibility is: to publicize and interpret Girl Scouting to members andor employees, to help the troop acquire and maintain permanent equipment (when financially feasible) and support their g efforts, to take an active interest in the troop program socio-econom- money-earnin- ic I kZ.

Judge Halliday also explained court procedures and that court does not have to be scary. "Buy" a piece of Camp Cloud Rim Camp Cloud rim celebrated its 50th birthday in 1987.
