No Girl Scout Meeting Tonight, November 16th

This is a quick reminder that since we are having our field trip tomorrow morning, there will NOT be a Girl Scout meeting tonight. This was noted in the 1001 Inventions field trip post, however a couple of parents may not have read all of the details.

Insha-Allah, we will see you all tomorrow morning. Please review the 1001 Inventions post for all of the details concerning tomorrow’s trip.

Parents who are not attending the field trip as chaperones are encouraged to attend the PGMA General Body Meeting at 10:30AM.

JazakumAllah Khair,

The required uniform for Troop 3480 includes the following:

  • insignia tab and pins (appropriate for level)
  • white shirt
  • khaki pants / skirt or khaki abaya
  • white scarf

There are also official tunics or vest for the girls based on their level on which girls can proudly display their earned badges and participation patches. Daisies wear blue tunics; Brownies vests are brown; Juniors sport the green vests; and Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors are all decked out in tan vests.

Along with the vests, parents should purchase these essential items:

  • American flag patch
