Troop Meeting This Friday, Jan 1, 2016


As salaamu alaikum,

The next regularly scheduled troop meeting will be this Friday, Jan 1, 2016, 6 – 7:30PM, inshaAllah. Please be timely. Arrivals after 6:30PM are disruptive to troop meetings and strongly discouraged.

Take a moment to note the dates of troop meetings for the next three months:

  • January 15, 29
  • February 12, 26
  • March 11, 25


  • Brownies should bring their Brownie Quest Journey book to the troop meeting and be prepared to go over homework on pages 54 & 55.
  • Brownies will be brainstorming Take Action Project ideas as well as deciding on the next badge they’d like to earn.


  • Juniors who attended the horseback riding clinic at Beech Grove Farm should bring in a thank you note for Mrs. Anita.
  • Juniors should bring in their fitness goal for the Practice with a Purpose badge. Hanan will be sharing her fitness goal with the group, so bring a hoola hoop if you have one.




  • Pay your Girl Scout’s troop dues: $45 for Daisies, $60 for all other levels. If needed, dues can be paid in installments. Dues pay for badges and pins, help supplement some activities/trips, and also help support the troop web site, and printing expenses. (Parents pay for fun patches.) In order to camp, dues must be paid in full. For financial assistance contact Sis. Kesha.

Cadette Corner: Badge Work Updates

Asalaamu Aliakum

Great work at the last meeting ladies. I was overjoyed by the participation.

If you missed the star gazing or want more (since the weather was overcast) please check out the Rock Creek Park planetarium during the break.

Refer back to the original Night Owl blog post so that you are working on what is due at the next troop meeting.

Girls working on the aMaze journey should look at the Amaze Journey & Silver Award blog post to find out what is also due at the next troop meeting.

Please add to the badge tracker Excel spreadsheet by January 15, so that we can finish mapping out the rest of the scouting year.

Again good work ladies. Let’s keep it up!
