Time

Event

6:30 p.m.

LEADER  I’d like to welcome all the friends and family here tonight to our Investiture ceremony for troops 0000, 100000, and 10. We’re delighted to have you here to share in this important step of our children’s scouting experience.

Now to introduce the leaders! From Troop #00000: I’m        and this is                 From Troop # 00000000:         and   

Please stand. Leading us in the Pledge of Allegiance, may I present our prospective Daisies. (PLEDGE)

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Parents, you may be seated.

6:32 p.m.

LEADER : Tonight THESE girls will become Daisy Scouts. To do this we must first make the Girl Scout Promise. I would like to ask the Daisy’s of our three troops to please stand to recite the Girl Scout Promise.

6:37 p.m.

All:

On My Honor, I will try:

To serve God and my country,

To help people at all times,

And to live by the Girl Scout Law

The center Daisy Blue of your daughter’s tunic represents that she earned the “Promise Center” as demonstrated today by their excellent recitation!

6:40 p.m.

LEADER The troop leaders will now demonstrate the Girl Scout Law by lighting a candle that corresponds with each daisy petal color that your daughter will earn:

I will do my best to be:

Troop #00000 lights these:

Honest and fair, (Light Blue)

Friendly and helpful, (Yellow)

Considerate and caring, (Spring Green)

Troop #10000 lights these:

Courageous and strong, and (Red)

Responsible for what I say and do,

And to

Respect myself and others, (Purple)

Respect authority, (Magenta)

Troop #101 lights these:

Use resources wisely, (Green)

Make the world a better place, and (Rose)

Be a sister to every Girl Scout (Violet)

As your leaders, we pledge our dedication, our commitment, and our friendship to you.  Let’s make Girl Scouting fun for all of us, but at the same time not lose sight of the Promise and Law that we have pledged to uphold.

Leader:          

I now ask that parents be seated and we will begin the pinning ceremony. 

 They have also earned two pins tonight which we will be pinning to them in a moment.  First let me explain the meaning behind each of the pins.

The World Trefoil pin is the unifying symbol of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girls Scout, and is worn by members worldwide.  It was introduced in the United States at the 1949 GSUSA National Council Session.

The World Trefoil has symbolic meaning. 

The golden Trefoil on a bright blue background represents the sun shining in a blue sky which is over all the Girl Guides and Girl Scouts of the world:

The three leaves represent the three-fold Promise as originally laid down by the Founder;

The base of the stalk represents the flame of the love of humanity;

This stem represents the arts and sciences, through them all women are sisters. May they become friends through understanding.

The vein pointing upwards through the center of the Trefoil represents the compass needle pointing the right way;

The two stars represent the Promise and Law.

This flame like base, the flame of the love of mankind, symbolizes the highest thought in international friendship. It completes the whole. May this flame encircle the world with good will and always burn brightly and intensely in the heart of all Girl Scouts and Girl Guides.

The daisy is a symbol of dedication to the Girl Scout movement, which was started by our founder Juliette Gordon Low and began in our country on March 12, 1912.  Juliette Low’s nickname was Daisy.  These girls are following in her footsteps as they become Daisies, each with a unique and caring influence in today and tomorrow’s world.

The Daisy Pin is initially pinned on upside down.  It can be turned right side up by a parent after the new Daisy Girl Scout has completed three good deeds or a good turn. The Girl Scout slogan is “Do a good turn, daily.”  I look forward to hearing all of the good deeds at our next meeting! 

6:50 p.m.

LEADER:  I will now call each girl from Troop # 00000 forward to receive her Daisy Scout pin. This makes you official Daisy Scout. May you wear this pin proudly and always over your heart.

Leader reads each name and Leader will pin each girl, gives them the GIRL SCOUT HANDSHAKE as they will pose for a picture, and then go back to their spots.

7:00 p.m.

LEADER:  I will now call each girl from Troop # 10000 forward to receive her Daisy Scout pin.

Leader reads each name and Leader will pin each girl, they will pose for a picture, and then go back to their spots.

7:10 p.m..

LEADER: I will now call each girl from Troop # 10 forward to receive her Daisy Scout pin.

Leader reads each name and Leader will pin each girl, they will pose for a picture, and then go back to their spots.

LEADER: Congratulations to all our new Daisies!  I would like to present our newest Girl Scouts in the Dogwood Service Unit—wait for wild applause!!

We are going to close in songs but first let me thank you for coming this evening and I hope you will stay and celebrate with us over refreshments. Girls, please join hands and sing, "Make New Friends".

Make new friends but keep the old,

One is Silver and the other gold.

A circle is round,

It has no end;

That’s how long I’m

Going to be your friend.

Make new friends but keep the old,

One is silver and the other gold
