WE NEED PIONEERS!
Our troop is growing by leaps and bounds, but one area we'd love to see grow is our Pioneer unit. Pioneers are girls grades 7-8. Annie Franklin has committed to being the Unit leader for the Pioneers, but currently we have no girls in that age group. If you know of any girls in this age group who would be interested in a fun, faith-based scouting program that offers opportunities for service and leadership, please encourage them to join us!
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.)
This year, in order to help promote structure and a better flow for our Opening Ceremony time, we have chosen a fun song that will be sung at the beginning at every meeting to get the girls motivated and smiling and then cue them to settle into a reverent and respectful attitude to begin the Flag Ceremony. Please help us introduce the song to the girls by letting them hear it as many times as they'd like so they'll be ready to sing along at the meetings!
The AHG Troop is an extracurricular activity and ministry of Yorktown Christian Academy. It is open to girls in the community and provides strong Christian leadership. If you are interested in the AHG program for your daughter, or are available to help with the troop, please contact us.
