Tie-dying at St. John the Baptist

A Girl Scout is someone who brings joy to her community with a smile on her face. On September 26, 2014, St. John the Baptist Catholic School hosted a movie night, and one of the activities there was a Girl Scout tie-dying table. Do you know what tie-dying is? In case you didn’t know, tie-dying is when you take clothing or fabric, and dye it different colors and patterns.

Girl Scout Cadettes of Troop 3693 hosted a table where movie-goers could tie-dye socks, t-shirts, and pillow cases. “We had two colors: purple and yellow. They were really supposed to be gold and burgundy, the colors of our school,” said Girl Scout Cadette Christine. Our troop had a blast helping everyone tie-dye their items. We had so many sales that there were people waiting in line. We did not have any trouble, only fun. This event was one of the many examples of what a Girl Scout is, and we made money too.
