A Message from the Snack Mom and Meeting Reminder

dried-fruits-heartAs Saalamu Alaikum,

If you have NOT signed up to provide snacks for Girl Scout meetings, please do. At the initial meeting, parents were informed that they would need to contribute snacks for the girls at each meeting. See the Snack Mom, Sis. Rolanda, to sign up for snack duty at this Friday’s meeting on 8 February 2013, 6 – 7:30PM.

We have 57 registered girls. Two parents bring enough snacks for 30 girls each to every meeting. (It’s better to have too much rather than too little.) We are asking for healthy snacks and drinks like fruit, fruit snacks (check labels for non-gelatin products), pretzels, Kashi bars (no peanuts), water, Capri Suns, or other non-soda drinks.

Thank you for helping to provide healthy snacks for our Girl Scouts,
