Last Meeting Recap
Thank you so much to everyone for letting your daughter come to last night's extra meeting. We were able to get the girls who couldn't make last week's meeting caught up and we are definitely more prepared for the last steps to complete this badge and make the deadline. Also, thank you to all the parents who responded back to my last minute request for volunteer assistance. You all are so great about pitching when we need your help.

Home Energy Audit - due next meeting
Therefore, using the information in their Get Moving books, pages 61 -75 (it's mostly pictures and worksheets), help your daughter with an audit of your home. They are to record the good energy findings and the energy wasters on separate pages of their energy book (second set of 3 white pages in their journals). The third page is to complete the building bio portion of the audit (see page 74).

Early BIrd Registration
Early Bird registration started 15 April and runs through 30 June. Our Council highly recommends that the girls' renewals be made by the Troop. We haven't done this in the past mostly because we haven't had the funds and secondly, we didn't know who would be committed to returning the following year. We now have the funds to do this; however, when we discussed the idea with the girls, they were a little ambivalent about making this decision, mostly because they weren't sure if they would be back next year. So, we'll discuss some more (decision doesn't have to be made until the end of this school year).
