Annual Meeting to Come

This weekend is our Annual Meeting. Since I am a newbie (just started in October) there are still so many volunteers and board members that I have not met yet. I am eager to meet them all and hope that this weekend will present that opportunity.  We will also be presenting Gold Award recipients with their awards.Follow on twitter @GSLPG this weekend to keep up with updates from our Annual Meeting. 
 Also, happening is the next installation of Socialites training. As of April 12 we will wrap our first round of training for our media girls. They have been excellent so far and very excited to share their Girl Scout story. We all have a story and we have to find our voice to tell it.  One of our Socialites will appear on the cover of Red River Moms in the April issue, due to come out next week. Cannot wait to see her smiling face and read what she had to say.

It's Outdoor Time

It is that time of year and we are gearing up for outdoor activities. We have already had one Family Fun Day at our camp property - Wawbansee up in Northwest Louisiana. There are three more and we hope they are just as much of a success.

Family Fun Days allow the public, that may not know about Girl Scouts and what we are all about to come out and experience first hand the outdoor fun and education to be had when the weather is nice.  This will be our second Family Fun Bio - Blitz sponsored by Angus Chemical up in Northeast Louisiana.  Black Bayou Lake National Wildlife Refuge will have volunteers on hand to teach about native plants and animals and give guided nature hikes.  It is only two weeks away and the anticipation is killing me.  I so need some fresh air and some nature in my life right now.
