Saturday Blitz, Dec 5

Asalaamu Alaikum

At times the hour and a half troop meetings every other week are just not enough to achieve the girls’ goals. Occasionally it is productive to meet outside of troop meetings for an extended period of time in order to accomplish a project, so some troops will be meeting on Saturday, December 5, 2015, 2 – 6PM inshaAllah.

An early dinner will be served. (Please make sure dues have been paid because this is where the money comes from.) Girls should bring their mess kits (i.e., a container and a cup).


For the World of Girls action project, the Brownies will be making sock puppets to donate to doctor’s offices waiting rooms for young patients to enjoy.  All Brownies are welcome to attend, however, girls who attended the Chesapeake Museum World of Girls Journey workshop will need to come in order to complete their take action project, the final requirement of their journey.  We will have some crafts to decorate, but we need donations such as, glue guns, yarn, felt, cotton, google eyes or anything they can use. Let us know what you can bring.  Also, please let your Brownie practice sewing on buttons with a needle and thread or sewing straight lines.

Watch this video or read this how-to with your Brownie to get her creative juices bubbling.

Registered parent volunteers are needed.  Please let us know if you can attend: hudahashim [at] yahoo [dot] com

Supplies to bring to make three puppets:

  1. Two pairs of new long socks (small to medium size)
  2. any craft items that your daughter would like to decorate her puppet with


Cadettes will be working on their aMaze Journey. Participating girls will need to bring their journey books, scissors, old magazines and paper to write with.

Girls who attended the Program Aide training can work on LiA award proposals. They will choose a Brownie Journey and develop a program for three meetings.

Cadette Breathe Journey Leadership Weekend, Mar 14 – 15


cadetteBreatheJourneyBookGirls will work together to earn Journey awards and learn how to improve the air quality in the world while gaining valuable leadership skills. Some pre- and post-work is required to complete the Journey. Attending adults will participate in concurrent programming on leadership development and supporting girls on a Journey. After participating, girls will be ready to implement their Take Action Projects to complete the Journey, and start working on the Silver Award. During the Journey Weekend, an adult training session will be running concurrently with the girls’ sessions.

We will be car pooling from PGMA. No tag-a-longs.
