Girl Scouts from Floresville, La Vernia, and Poth camped at the Floresville River Park Nov. 10. Seniors and Cadettes from Troop 559 led the younger girls through a rotation of activities including a scavenger hunt for large puzzle pieces that the girls later assembled to make a giant puzzle about the Girl Scouts.

The Scouts also made lap quilts in red, white, and blue for the veterans home in honor of Veterans Day. They learned songs and skits and recycled old T-shirts into tote bags. After enjoying hot dogs and Frito pies, the girls went on a night hike around the park.

They returned to toast marshmallows for s’mores. Then it was time for the skits and songs the girls had practiced. The performances included “Lemonade Stand,” “The Princess Pat,” “Gotta Go Wee,” “Invisible Bench,” and “Moose.”

The Scouts slept in tents under the stars and woke to muffins and fruit in the morning. It was time to break down camp and say goodbye to new friends and old.

The Wilson County Service Unit would like to thank the city of Floresville for a wonderful experience at the park.

Veterans home visit

Once the Scouts closed up camp Nov. 11, they had to clean up and put on their uniforms. The Scouts left the park and made their way to the Frank M. Tejeda Texas State Veterans Home. There, the girls helped celebrate Veterans Day by giving each veteran a thank-you card and the blankets they hand-made the night before. This was a memorable and special day for not just the veterans, but the Scouts as well.

The weekend ended, but the Girl Scouts continued to give thanks and celebrate with our veterans on Nov. 12. The Girl Scouts of Floresville participated in the Floresville Veterans Day Ceremony held at Floresville High School. The girls donated 200 bottles of water, and made 300 red, white, and blue ribbons that they pinned on the veterans.
