Last Troop Meeting of 2013: Friday, Dec 20.

troopMeetingFridayAsalaamu Alaikum

Friday, December 20, is the last meeting of 2013. Here is what’s happening:

2013-14 Cookie Season Begins
Cookies sales begin this Friday. Parents must attend a Parent Cookie Meeting with the Cookie Mom, Zakiya, at 6:30PM to sign the Girl Scouts of the Nation’s Capital paperwork if their girls want to sell cookies.

Trip Permission Slips & Payments
This Friday is the last day to turn in money for Winter Wonders Walks at Camp Winona on Jan. 18. This is a pre-paid event so there will be no refunds. All questions about trips should go to Sis. Kesha via email or phone. Please do not call her the day of a trip because permission slips are not accepted the day of events.

Investiture & Rededication
On Friday, Jan. 3, 2014 — our first troop meeting of 2014 — we will be pinning new girls and troop leaders, and rededicating girls to Girl Scout Troop 3480. This is one of the many ceremonies in Girl Scouts and we invite parents to join us. Certificates and patches will be presented to girls whose parents have paid dues. (Dues are $45 per girl per year and go towards the purchase of pins, badges and patches, and also supplement trip fees.)

Troop 3480 Calendar Now Online

More exciting things to come in 2014, inshaAllah!
