v Girl Scout Day at Didier Farm – The questions was raised at the VISTA 2 meeting about only having 100 free patches. The concern was that girls who arrived later would not be able to get a patch. This was great feedback and we did check with Didier’s and they only have 100 patches and cannot order any more. So we changed the patches to be a pre-order purchase through VISTA 2 so that every attending Girl Scout will have the opportunity to have a patch. A patch for this event is available for $1.50. Please refer to the VISTA 2 Web site for this event to preorder.
