News and Notes

Good afternoon Troop 40766!
We had a great time at our joint meeting last Tuesday with all the other SPX troops making Christmas ornaments.  These ornaments will appear on the City Park SPX Girl Scout tree, so that is why they didn't come home with them.  I wish I had thought to take pictures of them while we were making them, but alas.  Jodi Lafranca and her troop are decorating our tree today after school, so I'm sure she will have a few she can share.  As soon as I know where our tree is, I will let you know.

Don't forget to take the poll!  What are your three favorite girl scout activities?  (It's in the margin on the right.)  


Upcoming events:

We will not have a troop meeting this Friday due to the Thanksgiving holiday.  I know a few people are trying to get out of town early, so have a great holiday, and we will see you at our next meeting, November 30.   

Updated Snack Schedule:

Nov. 30:  Jaylin
Dec. 7:  Ellie
Dec. 14:  Kerri
Jan. 4:  Kaylor
Jan. 11:  Sofia Venezia
Jan. 18:  No meeting, COOKIE RALLY at 7 pm
Jan. 25:  Savannah
Feb. 1:  Isabella
Feb. 8/15:  No meetings, Mardi Gras Holidays

Would we like our meeting on Dec. 14 to be a Christmas party?  If so, where, when, and what should we do?  Two years ago we were at Debby's house, and did a gently used gift exchange and a Christmas Carol sing-off.  That was fun.  Last year we didn't have one at all.  I'm happy to host it here, but we would need drivers.  It would be nice to be able to just walk over somewhere after school.
