I am a Caregiver | “be a sister to every Girl Scout”

Happy Birthday Girl Scouts

Ottumwa Regional Health Center

In recognition of Girl Scout Week, and the National Birthday of Girl Scouts on March 12th, the Ottumwa-Cardinal-Pekin Girl Scout Service Unit presented a gift basket to the Women and Family Center for the first baby girl born at ORHC on or after March 12, 2016.  The gift basket included handmade items from each troop participating, as well as multiple other gift items. The basket also included personalized messages and notes of encouragement for each year until the girl’s 5th birthday.  For her 5th birthday (the minimum age to join Girl Scouts) the basket included a Daisy Girl Scout vest and Daisy book, along with an official invitation to join Girl Scouts. Through the donation of the basket, the troops celebrated the circle of sisterhood and embodied the Girl Scout Law that says, “Be a sister to every Girl Scout.” Baby Raedyn Neil was the lucky recipient!
