Back to Troop & Parent Meeting, 9 Oct

Asalaamu Alaikum

Time to get Back to Troop!

The first meeting of the 2015-2016 scouting year will be Friday, October 9, 2013, 6 – 7:30PM, inshaAllah.

Parents: Join troop management for a parent meeting, 6:30 – 7:15PM. This parent meeting is for those parents whose girls are already registered with Troop 3480, as well as parents of girls new to the troop and interested in joining the troop.

InshaAllah parents will :

  • Meet troop management
  • Go over troop guidelines, including the do’s and don’t’s that will make your girl’s scouting year go smoothly
  • Sign up to volunteer
  • Learn about Girl Scout uniform requirements and where to buy it all
  • Listen to other parents share their girl’s experiences with the troop
  • Ask questions. Things can get hectic during meeting times. We have about 80 girls and 160 parents, other siblings in and around the building. Come with your questions ready.
