PAW Service Unit Awards Banquet

Tonight was our last PAW Service Unit Meeting! We are splitting into two service units next year, so we will be in the one called "Pecan Trails" So tonight was our awards banquet and they decided to go all out and have a dinner and everything.

Our troop won an award for selling the most cookies, for I think our 3rd or 4th year in a row! We sold 7,896 boxes as a troop! That's awesome! So the girls got to go on stage and receive that award. Then they got to go on stage and receive their Bronze Award for planning and hosting our Diva Day event that was so much fun! They will get their pins in about 2 weeks, but tonight they got their certificates and their Bronze patches. They were so excited about that, it was a lot of hard work and it paid off!

I was recognized by our troop as an "Outstanding Volunteer" which was very nice! Makes crazy cookie season worth it! And then they did the Presidential Service Awards. There are Bronze, Silver and Gold level. This is awarded to people who do community service, whether through Girl Scouts or church, or whatever. Since Regan and I volunteer at church also, and their Bronze Award is considered community service, we were both awarded one! Regan received the Bronze Presidential Service Award, with over 50 community service hours, and I received the Silver Award, with over 450 hours! Regan loved her pin, but wasn't too thrilled with the letter that came with it, signed by Barrack Obama! But, it was nice to be recognized, and I love that our service unit had so many people that give back to the community!
