Girl Scouts Troop 44193

February Newsletter

Meeting Date Change!!!

Due to the forecasted weather, we will move our meeting to the second Tuesday of the month. Our next meeting is on Tuesday, Feb. 9th at 6:30 PM. We are tentatively scheduled to keep it at Springville, but will let you know if it has to move. This is a one time move due to weather. We will be discussing the field trip and cookie sales. We hope to see you there!

We are heading to the zoo!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, Feb. 20th at 1:45 PM - 4:00 PM! Our troop will be taking classes at the Henry Doorly Zoo. The Daises will take a class called Courageous and Strong. The Brownies will take a class called Bugs. The classes start at 2:00 PM. We will meet at the main entrance at 1:45 PM. If you arrive late, you will have to pay the entrance fee to join us. The cost is $10 per girl. The troop will cover the other part of the fee. Admission is waived for the class. The cost only includes the class supplies. So, having a zoo membership will not reduce your cost. We will pay with one check. Your money and/or checks made out to Troop #44193, are due on that day.

It is very important that you RSVP as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact Elizabeth at 402-669-0924. (If you text, please identify yourself.) Or, you can e-mail me at

This trip will be for our girls only. Families who wish to walk the grounds as they wait, must pay their own admission fee.

We Need A Daisy Parent Volunteer!

The Girl Scout Organization requires us to have another adult with our Daisy troop during the class. This adult must be an official member of the Girl Scout organization and submit to a free background check. The cost to join is $15 and lasts for one year. If you would like to assist our Daisy troop at the zoo and are willing to join Girl Scouts, (only as a helper for field trips--not a leader) then please contact Elizabeth as soon as possible. I will direct you to the online sign-up. The troop will pay your fee for the zoo field trip. (Please note: siblings cannot attend the class.) Our troop volunteer can be a mom, dad, grandparent, etc.

Cookie Time!

This potential snow is going to make a big headache! Bryn is supposed to pick up all the cookie preorders on Tuesday, too! The Girl Scouts will make a call on that pick up on Monday evening, but we are guessing that's going to be postponed also. Cookie sales official start on Friday, Feb. 5th. If you absolutely need your cookie order form ahead of Tuesday, Feb. 9th, please let Bryn know and she will make arrangements to get it to you. Otherwise, we will discuss the cookie sales process and pre-order distribution at our Feb. 9th meeting.
