Traditions give Girl Scouts a sense of history—and inspire them to be the best they can be. Sharing traditions with millions of Girl Scouts—and the huge network of Girl Scout alumnae who came before them—helps remind girls they belong to a big, powerful sisterhood. Throughout the year, girls and adults celebrate some very special days in Girl Scouting. Below are some of our annual Service Unit events.
Back to School & Scouting Event 8/12 Check in 5-7 pm
Back to School and Girl Scouting Spirit Night. Lets get the girls and their families together before school starts to play and have some fun indoors! This event is open to all the Girl Scouts, their families and are welcome to bring friends. It is open to the public.
Check in between 5-7 pm and mention you are with Ladybug Girl Scout SU. You will get a discounted price of $21.99 for the Ultimate wristband which includes all the attractions and 2 hours of playtime or until they close at 8 pm. You can purchase Urban Air socks for $2.50 or bring their socks from a previous visit. They will also have a special for us available at the Cafe: 2 slices of pizza and a water bottle for $3.00 or GF chicken bites for those with food allergies. 20% of the cost of the wristband goes back to our SU and will help to replenish some of the funds spent on purchasing the storage shed.

Date TBD at Indian Mound Ranch's Back to School Bash
Our recruitment rally is a time to welcome the public to see what Girl Scouts is all about and to find a troop to register their daughter in. The community will also have fun meeting some current Girl Scouts and making a traditional Girl Scout SWAPS craft.
Juliette Gordon Low Birthday Celebration: Halloween Festival
Ceremonies honoring Founder's Day, which is celebrated on Juliette Gordon Low's birthday, are another valued Girl Scout tradition. They highlight the important role Juliette played in the development of the Girl Scout movement in the United States. Our girls celebrate her birthday every year by throwing a Halloween Carnival. We are also starting to collect donations for Operation LH's dinners that they provide to families in need for Christmas. We are asking that each girl bring 2 boxes of stuffing and 2 boxes of potatoes. Donations can be dropped off at the Halloween Carnival.
Liberty Hill Christmas Market & Parade
The girls make hand made ornaments to be sold at the LH Christmas Marketplace as a fundraiser to be able to provide free service unit events for everyone. Their favorite part is being able to be a part of the parade and to ride on the decorated float.
World Thinking Day
World Thinking Day is a way to celebrate with girls all over the world by doing the same activities. The 2018 World Thinking Day theme was “Impact.” Making an impact means having a strong effect on something or someone. This World Thinking Day, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides will think about what it means to make an impact on the world—and celebrate being part of the global sisterhood that is Girl Scouts + Girl Guides. To make an impact, Cadette Troop 40101 is creating a mural in Liberty Hill for their Silver Award. Our troops donated $68 to WAGGS this year!
Service Unit Camping Trip
This is a time for all the girls to get together and practice all the outdoor skills they have been learning throughout the years. They get to participate in so many fun activities together. Last year's theme was local Indian tribes where each troop presented about a tribe they researched. They did so many fun crafts like pinch pots, jewelry, dream catchers, walking sticks and feather headbands. This year's theme is "Girl Scout Warrior-Find Your Inner Warrior". The girls will be having friendly competitions in various relays and minute to win it games. They will also be able to participate in crafts, swimming, kayaking and hiking.
