Reminder: Troop Meeting This Friday, Nov 4


The next regularly scheduled troop meeting will be this Friday, November 4, 6 – 7:30PM, inshaAllah. Please be timely. Arrivals after 6:30PM are disruptive to troop meetings and strongly discouraged.

Take a little time to note in your calendar the next troop meetings throughout the end 2016:

  • Nov 18

  • This Friday, the Brownies will be making sit-upons for camp and to use anytime they need to sit on the ground. Sit-upons are a Girl Scout tradition. Please bring 2 newspapers, a strong, reusable plastic bag big enough for the newspaper to fit into, and duct tape to share. The more colorful bag and duct tape, the better.
  • Brownies should also bring their WOW journey book and completed word find take home sheet from last troop meeting.
  • GSCNC will pay $25 towards a girl’s dues and will also pay for uniform items (excluding vests), Girl Guides and journey books. If you would like financial assistance let us know this Friday. We will be sending in one combined financial assistance request.


  • Juniors will get ready for the Lodge Campout and continue working on their Camper badge: The girls will learn more about the camp site and demonstrate a new camp skill by building a model campfire.


  • Cadettes will decide which journey they want to accomplish during the campout next week.
  • Cadettes will also draft the shopping budget for the meals they are responsible for during the campout, and assign kapers for who will participate and how the menu will be executed at the camp out.


  • Permission forms and payments are due at this Friday’s troop meeting for the Troop Lodge Campout, Nov 11 – 13.


  • 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 other troop expenses. (Parents pay for fun patches.) For financial assistance contact your Girl Scout’s troop leader.
  • Financial assistance is also available for uniform items, Girl Guides and journey books. Contact your Girl Scout’s troop leader.

Girls will put to use the camping skills they learned at the Camping Skills Blitz.

Girls might work on journeys, badges, crafts or enjoy other enriching activities.
