your girl to the meeting. Thank you!

Meeting location - First Presbyterian Church of Iselin

Hi everyone. I just went to preview our meeting space in
the First Presbyterian Church of Iselin. It is fantastic!
Special thanks to Glory Thomas (Bea's mother) and family for
arranging the use of the facility for us. I know you will
all love it!

I do want to clarify the location for you. Use the address
below to locate the general area but the entrance and
parking lot are actually on Middlesex Avenue. The First
Presbyterian Church is a smaller church in the back of the
large parking lot on Middlesex Avenue. Once you enter the
parking lot, look right on the right side to the brick
house/building. That is the building we will use. The
fence in front of the brick house says "Church School" on
blue signs. Park in the lot and enter right in the middle
under the roof. It is a fantastic space!

Please remember to send your girl with a water bottle,
snack, and napkin. We want to keep the space super clean :)

Thanks again and see most of you on Saturday.

Colonia Firehouse Field Trip

On November 16th our troop was lucky enough to take a field
trip to the Colonia Firehouse. The girls learned about the
engines, watched a fire safety video, and saw (up close) the
uniform/equipment the firemen wear. A few lucky moms
(including me!) got to go up 100 feet in the air in the
basket. So fun!

Lowe's Field Trip

The girls had a fantastic time. They had hand-on
demonstrations of how to cut carpet, kitchen/tile design,
and I think the big hit was them mixing paint. It was
really great.

More info on up coming meetings soon. I need to work out a
few details with the calendar through January.
