Do you have events planned for the spring? Are you looking for something fun and different for your girls to experience?
I check the council events calendar each month, looking at programs I would like to attend on the weekends. If you haven't checked this listing lately, I am happy to tell you we have many, many things for our girls to explore. In fact, we did a report to the GSSA board of directors on the number of programs offered, and they are up 55% from last year!
As I peruse the choices, there are some weekends where there are simply too many fun options from which to choose. Many of these programs are a tribute to the organizations who work with us. There is a wonderful tree planting program in the Tuskegee National Forest. There's a new organization, the GulfQuest National Maritime Museum, which is doing a program on oil and its impact. America's Junior Miss has changed its name to Distinguished Young Women, and it is always amazing to see how the contestants in that scholarship program relate to the troops who adopt them for their two week stay in Alabama. There's a new program in Eufaula, visiting the Shorter Museum and National Wildlife Refuge there. And there is the always a huge turnout for the Montgomery Biscuits camp-in, which is earlier this year and hopefully cooler for sleeping on the outfield. The Wiregrass area even is having a Cinderella Ball. There are too many choices, but what a great dilemma to have! I hope you are able to go to some of these wonderful opportunities to learn and share time with your girls.
