Bridging to the Next Level

Each summer troops and service units all across the council hold bridging ceremonies for their girls progressing to the next level of the Girl Scout program. While each has its own traditions, regardless of how formal the function, bridging is meaningful for the leaders, the families and (most importantly) the Girl Scouts.

The Carver Service Unit celebrated 65 girls bridging to all levels of the program.  The girls ran an impressive ceremony, presiding over everything from the presentation of the colors to gifting pins of appreciation to leaders and cookie moms.

The Shawsheen Service Unit had about 120 girls cross the bridge in a ceremony held at South Church in Andover. Members of one troop received their bronze award pins, and two Cadette troops — including five girls from troop 60919 who both bridged to the Senior Girl Scout level, and planned the whole ceremony — were celebrated for earning the Silver Award.

For Holbrook/Avon Troop 88208, 2014 marked their first-ever bridging ceremony. Six girls bridged to Brownie, while five Daisies received their first membership pins. The girls also received patches earned from recently completed events, including their first troop parade and a town-wide clean-up day.
Family and friends attended each of the ceremonies to recognize the young women who have worked hard and lived by the Girl Scout Promise and Law.

Congratulations to all the girls who have bridged! We look forward to supporting you as your journey continues.
