This past weekend was the “Rock the Mall” event in Washington DC. There are reports that there were over 250,000 Girl Scouts on the mall! I have found a couple of videos that recap the event. For those that attended the event, I’m sure they have some great memories. For those of us that were not able to attend, the webcast that Nation’s Capital provided was almost as good as being there!
Here’s one of the attempts to break the World Record for the largest flash mob with the song ”Ignite”!
Also on Saturday, the US Postal Service unveiled the new “Celebrate Scouting” stamp. They introduced it in a unique way – with a song! (Of course, it’s a sing-a-long!)
The Washington DC Fire Department came to the “Rock the Mall” also! They brought their trucks and sprayed the girls to cool them off! I’m sure the girls appreciated the cool down!
Here’s a great video that shows a 380 degree view of the event. You can really get an idea of the number of people who attended!
A troop from Syracuse, NY was able to place a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. What an honor!
And finally to end my post today, a song to sing along to – “Fred the Moose”!
Yours in Scouting!
