Calling All Crafters to the Girl Scouts Cornucopia Making Event!

With only two weeks left until Thanksgiving locals are busy preparing their homes for the festive holiday. Girl Scouts Troop 50094 is hosing a special event to teach people how to make a fresh flower cornucopia and you’re invited!

Smiles will be plentiful at your Thanksgiving feast when your guests see your hand-made fresh cornucopia. Cornucopias were first made in and mean “Horn of Plenty.” According to, the cornucopia is the most common symbol of a harvest festival. The horn-shaped container is traditionally filled with the abundance of the fall harvest. The traditional cornucopia was a curved goat’s horn filled with fruits and grains. According to Greek mythology, Amalthea, a goat, broke one of her horns and offered it to Zeus as a sign of reverence. As a sign of thanks, Zeus set the goat’s image in the sky, which is also known as constellation Capricorn.

Today cornucopia are filled with fruit or in this case, fresh flowers. The Girl Scouts will host their event on  Monday, November 21 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Bethel Middle School Cafeteria. Local Girl Scouts will teach guests how to arrange the fresh flower centerpieces that will make your Thanksgiving table the talk of the town. The fee is only $20, supports a great cause and you will go home with a cornucopia that you made yourself worth over $55!

The event is open to 4th graders and older and attendees must bring their own scissors.  Come as a Troop or make it a mother/daughter event.  You do not need to be a Girl Scout to attend.

The registration deadline is Saturday, November 12 so hurry up and reserve your spot today!
