Instead of our regularly scheduled troop meeting all levels will participate in the SU 22-6 World Thinking Day celebration in the Fellowship Hall of Largo Community Church in Bowie, MD (1701 Enterprise Rd, Bowie, MD 20721) this Friday, February 24, 2017, 6:30 – 9:30PM, inshaAllah. Please be timely. Girls should be in full uniform (clean white hijab, white shirt & khaki pants or khaki jilbab) with vest. Girls who have not turned in their permission form must turn it in to their troop leader at the celebration.




  • Juniors should be working in teams outside of the troop meeting to complete the next assignment of their Get Moving! Take Action project.
    • The Vendor Selection team should work with Sis. Amina (PGMA Facility Director) to find a company that will pick up recycling from PGMA and how much the company will charge. (Asima, Aya)
    • The Bin Selection team should find and price at least three types of recycling bins to place inside PGMA. (Amina, Nusaibah, Raqeebah)
