This week is Girl Scouts’ “I can’t wait to” National Recruitment Week—September 30–October 7. Girl Scout councils nationwide are promoting the “I can’t wait to” campaign, signing girls up to be Girl Scouts, and spreading the message that we need more adult volunteers so that even more girls can become Girl Scouts. And to kick off the week, GSUSA released a video featuring our Honorary National President, First Lady Michelle Obama—check it out: www.girlscouts.org/join. In this video, she highlights the fun of Girl Scouting and the important role of Girl Scout volunteers… exciting, right?!
We want everyone to hear about the fun and importance of Girl Scouts!
Here’s how you can help spread the word:

They also got to tour Sacramento State University, spend a night at the Sacramento Hostel and were even treated to a movie at Esquire IMAX! At the end of the week they presented their newfound knowledge about air to parents, staff, troop leaders, and volunteers. It was a fantastic week of fun, learning, adventure and memories, with a great group of girls. Another successful year for Air Aware!

I'm challenging you to make this summer unforgettable. Start by making a bucket list! Design a list of super fun goals, but be sure to add a few that will help you grow and develop as well.

Geocaching is an activity that involves the out-of-doors and technology. “Caches” or containers with tracker logs are hidden at GPS coordinates and others try to find them for sport. At each cache, trackers can log that they found the cache and sometimes they trade swag—little trinkets left behind.
Girl Scout Junior Troop 845 has been geocaching for a few years and has attended other CITO events. When they noticed trash along a local bike path and creek, they decided to plan one in their own town.
Guided by their troop leader, Roger, who has organized CITO events in the past, the girls did all the planning and talked with the park and recreation department to organize the event, which they called
“Girl Scouts Giving Back.” With their leader’s help, they were able to post the event on the geocaching website to invite the public. On March 3, more than 100 geocachers and Girl Scouts attended the event—one person even drove in from San Jose, another Girl Scout troop came from Novato. Great job, girls!

It also has antioxidants and numerous health benefits. It belongs to the food family that includes cabbage and collards. It is available in three different varieties: curly, ornamental or dinosaur. This dark leafy green can be found at your local grocery store and is readily available winter through spring.
A kale smoothie? I know what you’re thinking…”ick!” Give this recipe a go, and you won’t be sorry! The fruit covers up the taste of the kale, making this sweet smoothie a delicious breakfast or dessert.

Hey girls! My name is Lynze and I am a writer for Hear&Now teen magazine. I’ve been a Girl Scout since 2000. Through Girl Scouts, I have gained invaluable skills while creating many memories and friendships. I am also an active member of the Future Farmers of America organization. If you are unfamiliar with this organization, its purpose is to teach students about the importance of agriculture while developing their leadership skills. Both Girl Scouts and Future Farmers of America take pride in helping cultivate responsible and independent leaders like me. As a member of both organizations, I have noticed that much of what I have learned in Girl Scouts can be applied to the Future Farmers of America, and vice versa.
On that note, I would like to introduce you to my new series of blog posts that you can read right here on GSHCC’s blog, “Lynze’s Agricultural Adventures.” Agriculture is a vast industry and covers a wide variety of exciting subjects. I plan to post an assortment of topics that show how you can pursue your interests in the agriculture industry while being a Girl Scout. I’m excited to begin; stay tuned.
