Forest Fairy Fall Ball (PHOTOS)
On an October evening Girl Scouts and their Dads gathered at the Forest Fairy Fall Ball. The Ball was held by Girl Scout Troop 5391 and Girl Scout Troop 456. The ball took place in a lodge on a Girl Scout campground. The lodge was transformed for the ball. They brought in potted trees and put lights on them, and hung other beautiful decorations. It looked like an enchanted forest!
Girl Scouts and their fathers enjoyed many activities. Not only was there a DJ and elegant food, there were many other activities as well. Such as, a photo station, where girls and their fathers could have their photos taken. Girl Scout Junior Troop 1172 helped girls to make a “magic wand” out of a tree branch.
We interviewed a Girl Scout Junior Caroline who was at the Ball with her Dad. They liked the Conga Line the most. Girls played a game matching a number from the bottom of a homemade fairy house to the same number found on the bottom of a chair. The girl with the matching chair number was the lucky winner and was able to take home the corresponding fairy house. Also, the girls were able to take home the fairy wings that were used as part of the lodge decorations. Girl Scout Juniors Vivian and KayLeann both said their favorite part of the evening was hanging out with their dads. Some girls went outside and made fairy houses out of sticks and leaves.
All the girls had a fun evening with their Dads, and are excitedly waiting to see what Girl Scout Troop 5391 comes up with next year.
