World’s Smallest St. Patrick’s Day Parade, March 17

It’s nearly time for St. Patrick’s Day, and that means it’s also time for the City of Enterprise to host the 25th Annual World’s Smallest St. Patrick’s Day Parade!  This year’s parade is scheduled for Saturday, March 17. Promptly at Noon, the parade’s single marcher will start off at the courthouse, walk down College Street to the Boll Weevil Monument (the world’s only monument to a pest), and then return to the courthouse. So, come on down to Downtown Enterprise for some local fun. Who knows, you might even end up on the National News!

Happy Birthday Girl Scouts of the USA!


On Sunday, March 11, Girl Scouts from Service Unit 923 attended the morning worship service at Green Hill.  It was such a joy to have these girls with us!  Several of the girls were Acolytes and Ushers during the service.  We all sang the campfire version of Jesus Loves Me as our opening hymn.  After the service we were able to enjoy fellowship together, along with birthday cake!  We were pleased to be able to honor these girls for their service to God, for their contributions to our community, and to help them kick off Girl Scout Week.  What a wonderful day!

National Girl Scout Week, March 11 to 17, 2018

Celebrate Girl Scout Week like a G.I.R.L.

Let’s get ready for that special time of year when Girl Scouts of all ages celebrate and show the world what it means to be a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, and Leader). March 11 – 17 is Girl Scout week!

Starting with Girl Scout Sunday and ending with Girl Scout Sabbath, Girl Scout week is an awesome opportunity to reflect on what it means to be a Girl Scout and all of the wonderful things girls do to make the world a better place. In celebration of this special Girl Scout tradition, here’s a list of recommended activities that will make your Girl Scout week extra special.

Sunday, March 11: Girl Scout Sunday
Saturday, March 17: Girl Scout Sabbath

Girl Scout Sunday and Girl Scout Sabbath give girls an opportunity to attend their place of worship and be recognized as Girl Scouts. If a place of worship is the troop sponsor, girls may consider performing a service, such as a greeting, ushering, or doing a flag ceremony. These days can also be a time when girls explore other faiths!

  • Wear your Girl Scout uniform and take part in a service at your place of worship.
  • Earn the My Promise, My Faith award.
  • Learn about a faith tradition that you are not familiar with.
  • Volunteer to assist with teaching or watching the younger children in your place of worship.
  • Volunteer to lead a prayer or song in your place of worship.
  • Find a quiet, peaceful place to think about all of the things you are grateful for.

Monday, March 12: Celebrate the Girl Scout Birthday!

On this day in 1912, Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low assembled a group of eighteen girls from Savannah, Georgia for the first ever Girl Scout meeting. Low believed that all girls should have the opportunity to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually. She organized service projects, outdoor adventures, and enrichment programs to get girls out of the house and into the community.

  • We’re 106 years old today! Host your own Girl Scout Birthday Party to celebrate.
  • Think about what Girl Scouts means to you and write a letter rededicating yourself to Girl Scouts.
  • Learn more about Girl Scout history and our founder, Juliette Gordon Low.
  • Memorize the Girl Scout Law and recite it to your family.
  • Spend time working on a Girl Scout badge or Journey today.
  • Share the Girl Scout love and invite a new friend to join your Girl Scout troop.

Tuesday, March 13: Be a Go-Getter and Take Action!

  • How can you improve your neighborhood? Create your own small service project.
  • Think about people in your community that might not have homes. How can you help people who are experiencing homelessness? Consider serving food or donating clothes and hygiene products to a local shelter.
  • Give back to your troop’s meeting location with a clean-up or beautification project.
  • Volunteer at a local family shelter.
  • Organize a food drive or collect nonperishable food items from friends and family members to donate to the local food bank.
