Sample Year Planner

Every troop has their own order for earning Learning Petals, this is just a suggestion to help you plan your Daisy year.  Notice that this planner begins in October, this is when the Girl Scout year officially starts and since Daisy troops are new troops this gives the leader (or service team) time for recruitments.  It is highly recommended that you also hold a parent's meeting before meetings begin, too.  This planner is based on weekly meetings, lasting about an hour.  With the new two year program, you can interupt this planner at any point and complete a journey.
