Issue #51 - December 2015
A Note from the Founder - New Membership Pins
Jan. 2017 will be our 10th anniversary and we had planned to make the official switch from our old logo with the eagle to our new logo with the star/hearts/hands at that time. Unfortunately I somehow lost an entire case of membership pins with the old logo. Rather than buy more when we are this close to switching, we purchased the new membership pins instead. The old logo will always be a valid part of our program, but the eagle is not a uniquely recognizable symbol to carry our organization into the future. The new logo with the star to represent our patriotism, hearts to represent our dedication to community service, and hands to represent the life skills we hope to teach the girls is a better and more recognizable symbol of who we are. If you are a current member and would like a new membership pin instead of the eagle one you are currently wearing, you may order one through the store for no cost by putting your name instead so that we can track who we have sent them to.

Celebrating Veterans Day
Here is a few highlights of how some troops honored our veterans for Veterans Day.
Troop 210 colored all month and asked the local school to help color pictures for the local vets in the veterans hospitals.... The girls colored a total of almost 300 sheets for veterans.
Troop 310 helped take down the flags at the Avenue of Flags at Orange Grove Cemetary in Lake Charles, LA
Troop #352 had a guest female veteran speaker at their meeting and made thank you cards to distribute to the armory and mail in our adopt-a-platoon boxes to earn our Veterans Day badge.
Frontier Girls Troop 213 participated in the local Veteran's Day Program
Serving our Communities
Below are just a few examples of how Frontier Girls troops are giving back to their communities.
Frontier Girls Troop #357, only has 6 girls, we are small but mighty! Our girls collected candy for Soldiers' Angels Treats for troops. I am at a loss for how I will ship it all! What an amazing problem to have! We haven't had it properly weighed yet, but I know it is somewhere between 150-200 lbs of candy!
The St. Mary's Frontier Girls/Quest Club are earning their Volunteering Badge. We began by making baskets for the church's Christmas Bazaar. We are going to focus on other activities throughout the year.
Frontier Girls Troop 144 went food shopping for the Open Link. We were able to purchase enough food for at least 8 families plus many extra side dishes. We want to thank the local BPW and QNB bank for helping with monetary donations so we could shop to help this many local families. Great Job Girls!!!!
Troop #213 collected donations and purchased food to complete 5 Thanksgiving baskets and 2 boxes to donate to the Food Pantry.
