Alhumdullilah, we have had a great start to PGMA’s Girl Scout Troop. The past few months have
been rewarding for both the girls as well as troop leadership. A big THANK YOU is hardly enough for our exceptional troop leaders and volunteers.
INDUCTION CEREMONY: 37 New Girl Scouts!
During our last meeting we held our first induction ceremony and reception. We are pleased to announce that 37 girls were pinned as members of PGMA Troop 3480 and the Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital. Each girl was able to walk on stage and receive her first Girl Scout Pin. Congratulations to all of our Daisies, Brownies, Juniors and Cadettes!
As we head into Ramadan and wrap up our summer session, please take note of our upcoming meetings and special activities listed below.
