Join us in playing a virtual game of Pictionary, along with your family and other Girl Scouts. This charades-inspired word-guessing game is brought to us by volunteer sketch artists from the United Way's Draw United Program. Girl Scout-themed pictures will be drawn on-screen for girls to make guesses by typing them into the chat log. Depending on time, our goal is to play 10-15 games during the session. Each game winner will receive a fun patch. All registration questions must be completed in order for girls to receive credit for attending. Use your girl's name when answering questions.

We've invited guest speakers from the Emergency Management Services, Manatee County Area Transport, and the Pittsburgh/Bradenton Marauders to help lead the discussion about evacuating vs. staying during a storm threat, including sheltering with animals. Become your family's hurricane expert!
