Pilgrim Academy Girl Scouts
On Saturday, October the 10th, 6 of our girls went to the annual Girl Bridging Ceremony to celebrate passing onto the next level within the troop. As a reward for promoting, the girls received special patches. They also met other girls from different troops and heard their experiences about going camping as a troop. Now they are looking forward to trying it on their own.
Texas Adopt a Beach
On September 26, 2015 our very own Girl Scout Troop with the participation of parents and our Girl Scout Troop Leader Mrs. Edna Chible participated in the Texas Adopt A Beach Program, an all volunteer effort in preserving and protecting Texas beaches. The program strives to raise public awareness and generate public support for state, national and international action to clean up coastal waters. It was wonderful to see different people generously dedicated their time to volunteer and support the cleaning and preservation of our coastal areas. We are very proud that our Girl Scouts were able to help out and participate in this annual clean up event.
Sunday September 13,2015, Houston celebrated Fiestas Patrias with a parade and several other celebrations to mark Mexico’s Independence. This also coincides with the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month. Pilgrim Academy’s own Girl Scouts of troop 149027 were in high spirits as they displayed their banner and proudly walked through downtown Houston. Students, teachers and parents could be heard cheering along the route and joining in with the thousands of Houstonians present at the event. This is the second parade attended by Pilgrim’s Troop. School Clerk and Girl Scout leader Edna Chible says that the girls are always excited to participate in events like this. “The girls are so excited to show their pride and dedication. Events like this really make them proud of our troop.”
