American Heritage Girls Troop 356
Yorktown Christian Academy
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him, and he will direct your paths.” -- Proverbs 3:5-6
The American Heritage Girls is a Christ-centered organization offering a wholesome character development program for girls, ages 5 to 18. AHG focuses on building women of integrity through service to God, family, community, and country.
Spring Dues are now due!
Troop 356 would like to welcome Kelly Borchelt to our Troop Board! Kelly has volunteered to fill our Treasurer position. She has 3 daughters who are actively involved in AHG and is a Middle School Teacher at YCA. From this point on, any payments or finance related questions can be directed to her and any correspondence that is finance-related will come from her. If you see Kelly at a meeting, hug her neck and give her a big THANK YOU for stepping up to fill this important role in our troop!
VOLUNTEERS STILL NEEDED
AHG Needs Your Help! Our troop has been blessed with an abundance of girls who are excited to be a part of AHG this year! We are excited to see how the Lord continues to provide for our needs in the form of willing volunteers. We have been able to fill several empty slots, but we are still in need of volunteers in the following areas: Co-Leaders for our Tenderhearts and Pioneers units. We ask that you prayerfully consider the possibility of working with us and being a part of this wonderful ministry! Troop Meetings are twice a month for an hour and a half, with special events sprinkled throughout the year. Being a Co-leader takes a little time out of your schedule, but the rewards are worth the time you invest in this beautiful group of girls! If you’d like more information, contact us at (361) 985-9960 ext. 108. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
CONNECT WITH US ON FACEBOOK!
Did you know that our troop has a Facebook group page? Our Facebook group is a private group available to our troop families only. It was created to encourage communication and connection between our troop families and to provide a safe place to share pictures, announcements, and enjoy conversation. Our Facebook group does have rules and is maintained by members of the Troop Board. Only families of registered AHG members will be allowed to join. Just do a search for "AHG Troop 356", or click on the Facebook link at the top of this page, and request to join! See you on Facebook! (Special Note: Joining the AHG Troop 356 Facebook group will NOT cause you to be added to any other group member's "friend" list without a "Friend Request" being initiated by either party. Your Facebook account will remain as private as your settings allow.)
JUST FOR GIRLS
Our website has a new addition! We now have a "Just For Girls" page full of information and special sections just for the girls. The page is currently under construction, but the beginnings of it can be found by clicking on the "Just For Girls" tab above. "The Shepherd's Corner" and the AHG Creed Guessing Game can now be found on that page, and the music link has now been activiated! We also plan to include book recommendations, an art gallery, tips on friendship, beauty, and health, and information on upcoming events and badges. We hope that you'll encourage the girls to check it out every now and again to help them stay plugged in to what's going on and what's coming up next. We'll keep you updated on the progress of this page.
