The new Brownies had to memorize their Brownie Promise and then one by one be lead to the reflective pond to state their promise for the audience. I could really feel her sense of accomplishment as she spoke loudly and clearly. I had heard her practicing it secretly in her bedroom for a few days before and she nailed it.
The Brownies and Sparks were asked to bring in a treat to share after the ceremony. The leaders in Brownies are all named after an Owl. When I had saw this super cute Owl Smore Cookie on the Life with Depews blog and knew that was what we had to make. It couldn't have been easier. With a microwave and a few helpers it took all of 10 minutes (including clean-up) to make a batch of 24. While it would have been nice to wrap them all beautifully as you will see in the blog, it wasn't practical for our event. I don't think anyone minded. They were a huge hit!
It was a proud night for us all!
