Who wouldn’t love to travel the Around the World in 80 Days? Well, now’s your chance! The Junior Girl Scouts of Troop 30593 will be hosting a fundraising event at Savannah Children’s Theatre on Saturday, November 22nd from 10:00am – 12:00pm. The girls are working on their Bronze Award, the highest honor a Junior Girl Scout can achieve. Among other things, the Bronze Award must leave a lasting impact on their local community. For their project, Troop 30593 has decided to focus on a renovation project in the front lobby of Savannah Children’s Theatre!
We are still in the planning process, but the improvements will include homework areas for students, a mural painted by a local artist, and upgraded concessions and merchandise areas. The girls have been diligently calling, sending letters, and visiting local and national businesses to seek out donations for this unique project. In addition, the girls will be hosting this wonderful fundraising event, Around the World in 80 Days, for children of all ages!
When you arrive, you will create your own passport, then begin your adventure! You can travel to India for a henna tattoo on your hand, then move on to Papua New Guinea for traditional face painting. If you are feeling a bit more crafty, you could visit Japan to create some origami art, or design a Brazilian headdress for Carnivale. Your travels do not end there; you could learn a Norwegian polka, participate in an interactive story of Australian folk tales, and take time to explore other cultures by visiting their crafting stations.
Wrap up your travels with some tastes from around the globe. You will snack on egg rolls, hummus and many other yummy bites to satisfy your taste buds. There will even be a traditional Venezuelan punch to quench your thirst after your adventure!
Not only will you have an afternoon filled with lots of fun, but you are supporting a wonderful cause. Helping the girls to reach their goal, not for a campout or trip to the movies, but for a project supporting Savannah Children’s Theatre! The girls have big ideas that they would love to see brought to life, but it cannot happen without the support of the Savannah Community. So, please consider joining us on November 22nd on a world-wide adventure for an amazing cause!
