Friendship Meeting 



Troop leaders, did you know that August 5-11, 2012 is National Friendship Week? To honor National Friendship Week we encourage you to start out the 2012/2013 membership year with a troop meeting that is centered on "friendship"! You don't even have to plan it because a 90 minute sample meeting will be provided! Every girl that participates will receive a cool friendship bracelet. Details will be provided on our website in late July.

We'd Love To Hear From You!
