Arch Multi-Level Bridging Ceremony

Daisies and sister Brownie troop should stand and proceed to the designated area for the Arching Ceremony. [The arch can be formed by: Leaders or Brownies raising arms to make arch, holding branches to make an arch, or making a floral arch.]

Speaker:

When I was a very young girl.
I learned the joy of singing
But now that I am older
I'll take along my happy smile
I wore Daisy Blue.
With Daisy friends so true.
I'll wear a hat of brown,
To Brownies I am bound.
Daisies cross thru the Arch as leader says:

Thru the Arch to a wondrous thing
A Daisy joins the Brownie Ring.
Fly-up Brownies and sister Junior troop assemble.

Speaker:

When I was a young girl I wore a dress of brown
I learned the B's of Brownies And friendship all around.
Now the dress I'll wear will be of Girl Scout green
Old friends join hands with new As a Junior I'll be seen.
Brownies now cross the Bridge to Junior troop. Bridging Juniors and Cadette sister troop assemble.

Speaker:

When I was a young girl I wore a dress of green,
I learned thru helping others What happiness can mean.
Now I'll follow in proud footsteps . Where other Scouts have been
Exciting Cadette adventures ... Where I'm ready to begin.
Juniors now cross the Bridge to Cadettes. Bridging Cadettes and Senior troop assemble.

Speaker:

When I was a young girl I wore a dress of blue
By service to others I've learned what some go through
To Seniors I am going, I know I'll achieve my goal,
By learning the world around me, I'll discover my own role.
Adult Speaker:

When I see a young girl who hasn't worn our dress of green
I think of all the wonders that she has never seen
We've watched our girls grow. And marveled at what we've seen
And now that we are older We still love our dress of green.
