It’s Our Planet, Love It!

Troop 3480’s summer theme is: It’s Your Planet, Love It!

Through girl scouting, girls see the earth as their home. Whether they are
learning about endangered wildlife, developing creative recycling projects, or
working towards earned grade-level awards, girls focus on care, conservation,
and responsibility. They ensure the safety of our planet for future generations.

PGMA Girl Scouts will be initiating a Green Recycling Initiative at the Masjid. Interested in contributing ideas to this green initiative? Contact Troop Manager Sr. Alia at alia [dot] kemet [at] gmail [dot] com.
