All Girl Scout participants, in addition to receiving a patch, may have their Troop apply their service toward their Aloha Ambassador Patch or the Honor Troop Program.

Please submit a current, completed copy of your Girl or Adult Health Information for Council Programs form by May 12, 2018 5PM HST.

Where: Windward Mall, Center Court Stage, 46-056 Kamehameha Hwy, Kaneohe, HI 96744.

Come to learn and contribute your lei making skills to create the many lei we want for the next day's decoration of the Hawai`i State Veterans Cemetery-Kaneohe.

Also, bring flowers, already made lei, and flower stalks to the Mall.

Each Troop is asked to make and contribute 10 lei (flower, ribbon, yarn) to fulfill the goal of making 10,000 lei to decorate the veterans grave-sites.

There is a $5 fee to cover the cost of a beautiful new "Lei of Aloha" Service Project Patch, which is separate from the Memorial Day Service Project patch provided to the participants who decorate the graves on Sunday afternoon.
