On November 29, 2014, Troop 823 participated in the Toys For Tots Toy Drive at Walmart in Lihue.
On October 25, 2014, along with Aunty Delcey (Co-Troop Leader), Kaytlen, Jayda and Kyla represented Troop #823 at the Kaua‘I United Way’s Annual Walk-A-Thon at Kukui Grove Shopping Center.
As part of the week-long celebration of National Grandparents Day (September 7, 2014), we arranged an opportunity to give back to our community with a Dance Performance for the Kupuna Residents at the Regency at Puakea (2130 Kaneka Street, Līhu‘e) on Monday, September 8th at 3:15pm. We also arranged for a special Proclamation for Grandparents Day by our Mayor Bernard P. Carvalho, Jr. and contacted Dennis Fujimoto of the Garden Island Newspaper for a photo shoot to mark this special occasion.
On August 31, 2014, we assisted with the County of Kauai’s County Aid Station for the Kauai Marathon.
On August 23, 2014, we volunteered our time as “Course Marshals” for the 2014 Walk to End Alzheimer’s by holding signs and flowers which directed the walkers on their two-mile course around Kukui Grove Shopping Center. At the end of the walk, we anxiously questioned when we were going to volunteer again because we had a lot of fun!
On August 16, 2014, we delivered about $100 worth of baked goods to the Kaua‘i War Memorial Convention Hall to be sold at a fundraiser to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.
When our Troop Leader asked us if we wanted to make a contribution of baked goods to the 2014 Walk to End Alzheimer’s Memory Keepers Team, for a Bake & Garage Sale fundraiser, we said YES! We held a baking party sleepover where we baked cookies, cupcakes and brownies, bagged and priced them for sale.
On March 21, 2014, we decided to go bowling. It wasn’t an official Girl Scout activity, rather a girls night of bowling fun.
This is where our story begins…
On March 14, 2014, with honest hesitation, four girls, four friends joined the Girl Scouts of Hawaii as Cadette Girl Scouts.
We had no clue where this decision would take us. But we took that step and a fun-filled year of activities and community service projects began, taking us on a journey we would like to share in this blog; a journey that will continue. It’ll be one that you will be able to follow along with here on this new site! Enjoy!
