July 2017 Schedule: Troop 5823

It is July 1st! Wow! Can you believe how time is flying already?! Me neither! Well Girl Scout families, this is what we are doing this month! Please RSVP (my girl scout families) and let's have a grand ole time in July! 

Starting now, we will do something new-- we will put a "Month At-a-Glance" Out so you can know exactly what to expect and it doesn't get lost in email. You can always reference back to this to get the details for any given event in the month- which is July 2017- as well as get links to the quarterly schedule. 

The monthly schedules will have the more nitty gritty details of each event versus the quarterly. 
PLEASE RSVP on the links below so we can know what to plan for (going, unsure, not going). Thanks.
