1.  Explore community symbols.
2. Sing together.
3. Follow the parade.
4. Be a landmark detective.
5. Join a celebration.

1. Explore community symbols: go on a flag hunt. 
Maya and her Daisy sister (who is now a Brownie as well), "M" went on a flag hunt throughout Lansdale Borough.  Over a mile, the girls found 116 American flags and countless military, novelty, and other country flags!

2.  Sing together: find three celebration songs.
Maya and "M" sang together "Make New Friends", "Happy Birthday", and "America, the Beautiful".

Maya took part in the 66th annual Lansdale Mardi Gras parade to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas.  She was also the Flag Bearer for the Service Unit!
