Amanda Piccerillo, Owl - Hits 400 Badges

Cassie Jensen, Owl - Hits 500 Badges

Written by Troop #342

We were a Girl Scout troop for several years and in our final year as that troop, Cassi Jensen joined us for her senior year in high school. During that 1 year I believe she earned every badge(or at least close to it) available to her. She was the first of our troop to join Frontier Girls after we decided to leave GS and started researching this entity. She has worked so hard and made us all so proud at home and abroad and the other night she messaged me and Mollie Comer super excited that she had reached a milestone that it is hard to believe has been accomplished in just 2 short years. Please everyone join us in congratulating this wonderful young woman on reaching her 500th badge through Frontier Girls. She is part of the 911 troop but will always be with us and part of Troop 342. We love you Cassi and we are so very, very proud of you.

New Badges Added!





A Request For Support

by Kerry Cordy

Occasionally one of our Frontier Girls or Quest Clubs members finds themselves in the need of a little love and support and when that happens, I encourage you all to respond with as much love as you can share.  This was posted on our Frontier Girls and Quest Clubs Facebook group.  Making and sending a card takes little time or expense, so I encourage as many members as possible to send a little love. 

"My son is turning 11 this year and out of every birthday invitation he has passed out he has only had one person come to his party in the last 6 years and the child stole from him. Nobody sends him cards and he is fascinated by them. He has Aspergers and his biggest problem is social interactions.I was hoping people could send him cards and possible put pictures of their favorite animal inside. His birthday is the 15th of September. He loves his cats, goats and his chickens. They bring more joy to him then people do. Please address cards to:

C/O Elisa Shiemke

Alpena, MI 49747"


September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Several years ago, Frontier Girls from around the country supported a Penguin Frontier Girl named Amelia as she suffered from cancer.  Frontier Girls  proud to announce that Amelia is now an Otter entering the first grade and doing great.  In her honor we would like to encourage all Frontier Girls to learn a bit more about childhood cancer and those it affects by earning the badge that was written for Amelia.
