5/10/16 GS Meeting Reminder & News

Troop 1677

5/10/16 Meeting Reminder

We will be meeting this Tuesday from 6:30pm-8pm in the cafeteria. This week we finish up our First Aid badge, work on one of our Bridging steps and say good bye to Patsy as this will be her last meeting with us.

What to bring:

  • Wear your vest or sash.
  • Bring any worksheets you may have finished.

Is there anyone willing to bring any special treat to the meeting? It's ok to have more than one person bring something as we will have a "mini party" at the end of the meeting to say goodbye to Patsy.

************We will NOT be meeting on the 17th.********************

  • When: 5/26/16
  • Time: 6-7pm dinner/handouts; 7pm-???? play
  • Where: Powerplay Northland
  • What: The girls voted to go to Powerplay this year. This would be a great time to do that and use it to celebrate a great year and cookie season. I will hand out cookie incentives at that time as well as any earned badges that need to be handed out.
  • Cost: Free for each Girl Scout in the troop. I do need to know if any of your daughters would like to ride the Go Karts. For each additional family member who attends, it is $3.99 if you purchase only the buffet by telling them you are a member of their email club. If you wish to purchase the Powerplay pack that the girls are receiving it will be $22 per person (which includes the buffet). This package does not include the Go Kart price which is $5 if you or a family member wishes to do this. ***In order to enter the buffet area you must purchase a buffet.***

***Please RSVP by the 20th to let me know in advance if your daughter is planning to attend, if she wishes to ride the Go Karts, and if there will be any additional Powerplay packages/Go Karts being purchased for other family members.***

Horseback Riding Field Trip **sign ups now open**

The troop has voted to go on a Horseback Riding field trip to earn their Horseback Riding Badge. The program would cover all steps of the badge. (ex: grooming, feeding, and riding to name a few).

  • When: 6/17/16
  • Time: 5:30pm-8:30pm
  • Where: Woodson Hill, 7990 NW Mace Rd, KC, MO 64152.
  • Cost: $15 per registered girl. The program per girl costs $35 and the troop agreed to pay $20 towards the cost of each girl who does this activity.

Write an article?

Does anyone have a daughter who would be interested in writing an article for one of our future newsletters? I think it would be fun to hear first hand about an event from one of our very own. Why not earn a badge at the same time? One of the steps in the Junior Scribe badge is to write an article. Let me know if your daughter is interested and I'll discuss the badge in more detail with you.

If you, the parent, attended a recent event that you'd like to do a small write up about to share what happened, let me know and I'd be happy to share it in our newsletter.
