What is a Troop Blitz, you ask? It is a day of multiple exciting activities and programs. Friday night troop meetings are just not enough time to squeeze in everything our girls and troop leaders want to accomplish.
Troop 3480 Blitz
Saturday, December 22, 2012
10AM – 3PM
Prince George’s Muslim Association
9150 Lanham Severn Rd
Lanham, MD 20706
||Investiture: Welcoming new members into the Girl Scout family
||Court of Arms: Presentation of earned badges
||Light Refreshments & Thuhr Salat|
||Yoga and SWAPS Rotation
Families are invited to attend the Pinning Ceremony, Investiture and Court of Arms. Our girls are working hard and love to share their accomplishments with parents, family and friends. Girls are to wear their uniforms for this portion of the day.
Only registered girls can attend the yoga session and SWAPS. Mothers can also participate for a fee of $5. Make sure your girls bring comfortable clothes (T-shirts / leggings / sweatpants) with them to stretch in. Our yoga instructor, Sr. Nazaahah from Baltimore, will give background on Yoga sprinkled with Islamic insights and show our girls some basic moves. Please contact Troop Trip Mom Sr. Amina at ummsulaymank [at] gmail [dot] com informing her that your girl will be attending the yoga session.
SWAPS are Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere. They are a Girl Scout tradition that allows girls to “meet new friends” and keep those memories. Your girls have been making swaps during some of their meetings. The more SWAPS the better. They are a fun way to meet other girls at Service Unit and National Girl Scout events.
What do swaps look like? A girl’s imagination is the only limit.
SWAPS from Rock The Mall June 2012
We hope to see you at Troop 3480’s first Blitz. Since this event is located at our meeting place, no need to worry about permission slips, but please make sure health forms are in for participating girls.
