Our End of Year Ceremony and Seaside Campfire is coming up
on Saturday, June 28th.
Were you ever at the beach and find a bottle with a letter
in it? It's very exciting to see the bottle bobbing along
on the waves and then find that it holds a note, maybe
written by someone many miles away. For our End of Year
Ceremony, we'd like to ask that each girl bring a "message
in a bottle". Please recycle a plastic water bottle. Have
your girl write a short note or draw a picture to include in
the bottle. The theme of the note/picture should be "Our
year as Girl Scouts" and the girls should summarize what our
troop did this year and say that the bottle is being sent
out to sea during our End of Year Ceremony. Girls should
include our troop number 81423 and their first name only.
For safety reasons, do not allow the girls to include their
home address or their cell phone numbers. Please include
the troop email address firstname.lastname@example.org in case
someone finds the bottle and wants to contact us. For more
fun, girls can add a 2014 penny, confetti, or a tiny shell
to the bottle as well. Close the bottle tightly! We will
use these bottles during the End of Year Ceremony, so please
bring them on Saturday, June 28th.
Please keep in mind, we can only accommodate a maximum of 30
attendees for this event, including adults, so only Girl
Scouts and their mom's please.

4:30 to 5:30 - Rehearsal at Verne Fowler
Wear Green shirt
SWAPs - If anyone has SWAPs to hand out to the troop, Friday night would be a great time to bring them (the rest of the weekend will be very hectic!).

7:30 to 9:00 - Setup at Microsoft grade 3-5 girls and parents only
Posters - All
Assigned items (food/drinks) Saturday night if possible - All
Print out of PPT presentation or talent Expo script - grade 3-5 girls
NOTE: All girls must wear their official vest/sash during the entire event, they can remove it when they are performing if they want, otherwise all uniforms should be worn the whole event
The least amount of "costume" changes on Sunday, the better. All girls need to wear a hot pink shirt and black shorts for the finale, so it might be best if they wear this outfit for the entire event. I don't want to stifle anyone's creativity, but the less costume changes the better for all of us :) The girls in Tumble Time will still wear a black leotard and black shorts (leotards are must easier to do gymnastics in.)
Please remind your guests about the donations for the NICU. Suggested donation list was attached to their invitation.
