Pima Neighborhood

Girl Recognition 

Wednesday, May 6th, 7-8 pm

Pima is proud to host its sixth girl recognition event. If you have girls who have earned the Bronze, Silver, or Gold Award or are seniors in high school, please invite them to this event. This is an opportunity for you to present their awards (that you have purchased) or to publicly acknowledge their accomplishments.  There will be a reception for girls and their supporting troops and families.

Girls who have earned their Gold Award should plan to bring their gold notebook and board to the event.  Pima service award honorees should plan to attend.

If you have a girls who are in eighth, tenth, or twelfth grade, they may bridge at this event.  All girls will bridge together with girls from other troops in their grade.  Please send me a list of names of girls who are bridging. 

This is a formal, "uniform" event.  Please ask your girls to wear white shirts and black bottoms plus a vest or sash.

For the program, I need the following:
  • Troop #
  • Correct spelling of all girls' names
  • A list of awards.  We recognize "metal" awards earned in since the beginning of the current Girl Scout year. "Metal" awards include Presidential Service Awards, service bars and leadership torches, as well as the Bronze, Silver, and Gold awards.  If you wish to recognize other accomplishments, please check with Diana.  
  • A complete record of neighborhood event volunteer service to the neighborhood by each girl
Graduating Seniors! Please to submit a headshot (in uniform).
You may also email this information to
Deadline for submission is April 29
Absolutely NO Exceptions
If information is not submitted by April 29, it will not be included in the program

Thinking Day 2020

Thinking Day 2020

WHAT: Each year on February 22, World Thinking Day, girls honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts by taking time to give thanks for their international friendships and remember that Girl Scouts of the USA is part of a global community—one of nearly 150 countries that are members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). 

WHEN & WHERE: February 23rd, 1:30-4:30 pm
Archway Scottsdale
16648 N 94th St, Scottsdale, AZ 85260

COST: $5 per girl and includes a patch and passport.  No charge for leaders. Troops will be issued a refund of up to $3 per girl who attending after the event for those who attend. Last day to register is February 3, 2020.  The neighborhood subsidizes this event.

ATTENDANCE LIMITATIONS: the space will only accommodate 150 participants.  Please bring only enough adults to meet ratio guidelines. Tagalongs cannot be accommodated at this event. As always, for the safety of the girls, no unregistered adults should attend this or any other Girl Scout event.

Slots will be filled and countries assigned on a first-come, first-paid basis and then registration will be closed.  Please submit your check made out to Pima Neighborhood with the registration form below. It is really important that you actually fill in the form.  I lose track of verbal "can I have this country?" inquiries.

DIRECTIONS: Each troop needs to pick a country and prepare (and decorate) a booth that includes information, a food, a craft, a SWAP, and a physical activity (game or song, generally) related to their country.  Girls will be issued passports to travel from booth to booth, so a stamp or sticker is needed to have to mark those passports.  Your country choice will be confirmed as soon as you turn in your registration form.

Belgium, France, China, Mexico, Italy, Holland, Scotland, Russia, Japan, Egypt, Greece, Peru, India,  England, Ireland, Australia, Columbia, and Germany
