6/14/16 Meeting Reminder

We will be meeting this Tuesday from 6pm-8pm at St. Luke Joy Presbyterian Church 4301 NE Vivion Rd, Kansas City, MO 64119. A representative from Goodwill will be bringing drinks and pizza to celebrate our participation during the Goodwill service project. I have badges/patches to hand out to the girls. We will then discuss what the girls would like to do for their bridging party and then work on the next steps of our Bronze Project.

What to bring:

  • Wear your vest or sash.
  • Any research your daughter may have done for the Bronze Award.
  • Is there anyone who would like to bring a special dessert to have with our Pizza Party?

If you wish to purchase the Powerplay pack that the girls are receiving it will be $22 per person (which includes the 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 **for those who registered**

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). I have sent in a final head count to the facility. If you have not paid yet, you may do so at the troop meeting on Tuesday. Or you can make other arrangements with me.

National Beta Sigma Psi Closing Flag Ceremony

Our troop has been invited to do the closing flag ceremony at the National Beta Sigma Psi Convention on August 7 at 9:00 am at the Western Crown Center Hotel. There will be approximately 1600 people there. We will plan to arrive by 8:30 am on August 7. As far as the number of girls, we can have as few as 5 and as high as 13. If your daughter is interested in attending please let me know.
