SU 51-7 Annual Winter Service Project & SHARE Spaghetti Dinner

DATE: Monday, December 5, 2016 (in lieu of the SU Meeting)
TIME: 6:00pm to 8:00pm
LOCATION: Floris Elementary School Cafeteria

All Girl Scouts from SU 51-7, and members of their immediate families, are invited to attend the SU 51-7 Annual Winter Service Project & SHARE Spaghetti Dinner!

More details to come!

In conjunction with the Service Project, we will host a Family Spaghetti Dinner to raise money for SHARE. The dinner will include noodles, a variety of sauces, bread roles, dessert and beverages. We will serve the dinner in the Floris Cafeteria. All girl scout families are invited to enjoy the dinner. We will be selling food tickets at the event for $5 per person ($20 maximum per family) for those of you who wish to eat. All proceeds from the food tickets will go to SHARE.

We will need volunteers to help plan and execute these two activities: both the dinner and the project. We will also be asking for donated items. Contact Tina Anderson as soon as possible if would like to join the planning committee.

A Google Docs registration link will be emailed out to all troop leaders so families may sign up, online, to attend and order their patches.

Troop 2507 Visits Channel 4!

Junior Troop 2507 visited the NBC4 TV station in DC recently and met meteorologist Tom Keirein, who posted this picture of himself and the girls on the air! The visit was part the troop’s Journey project “Get Moving” and learning about weather and different types of natural energy.
