Girl Scouts Attend National Women's Bassmaster Tournament

Girls Scouts got a special treat over the weekend as they were invited by ESPN and B.A.S.S. to attend the Women's Bassmaster Championship that took place on Lake Hamilton in Hot Springs. The event made history because that day the WBT Angler of the Year Kim Bain was decided. For the first time in history this woman will get to be the only woman to fish in the Bassmaster Classic, the Superbowl of fishing tournaments. It was great to be a part of such an event.

Of Course Girl Scouts got a lesson in fishing from Angler Robin Babb and practiced their skills at casting in a contest! Here are some pictures from the event.

A Must See: Dove's "Evolution"

Dove's Campaign for Real Beauty seeks to improve self esteem in girls and women. Their website is an excellent resource for facts, studies and the truth on real beauty. The site also has a few interesting videos that give a glimpse into why we have such a distorted view of beauty. Please share this video with your troop, friends and family. They will be surprised when they see how Hollywood's standard of beauty isn't even real.

Check out their website at http://www.dove.us/#/cfrb/

Harvesting Healthy Habits

Girl Scouts participated in the program "Harvesting Healthy Habits" this weekend. This was through Alliance for a Healthier Generation and Clinton Library. Girls learned the importance of eating healthy and exercise.

These Girl Scouts were drinking water and to pose for the picture they were told to act as if that was the best tasting water they had ever had!
