Brownie Try-Its and Patches 2007-2008 (1st year)

We will be working on several try-its this year.  Most will take a few meetings to complete.  Some Try-Its will take all year to complete because they involve activities during the fall, winter and spring.  Along with working on our Try-It Badges, the Brownies can receive fun patches to remember the activities they've done.
