September Frontier Girls Pioneer Newsletter

This is a newsletter for the happenings of the Creative Madness Mama Frontier Girls of West Tennessee…  Last year, we slacked horribly with Frontier Girls. I tried several times to get things going with other local people, but schedules never went together and then I just stopped trying. Then there was all the medical stuff with a miscarriage and a new pregnancy, and yeah. It wasn’t the right season for us. Yet this brings us to now! Baby Mermaid Warrior is almost four months old, curriculum is picked and girls have started in our homeschool, and little Rascal brother is curious to learn. Plus mama feels like planning a field trip or two and the creative side is brewing. Thus, here we are! We are so excited to be starting a new year with our participation in the Frontier Girls as a Pioneer Troop. Now, my eight-year-old AppleBlossom has crossed. . .

Frontier Girls – New Year, it’s that time!

It is that time of year, the West Tennessee Frontier Girls are getting ready to start a new year (year end is August 31st) and we are in the planning stages! This year we are livening things up a bit by adding on the Rascal as he turned three a few months back. As he will be participating under quest, I haven’t decided what I will do yet about our Pioneer Troop, but I suppose a name change is in order to include him and I’ll have to decide on a uniform as well. I’m hoping that more local kiddos will want to join in on the fun this year, and time will tell! First up is to check on our uniforms. The Rascal doesn’t have one at all yet, so he will be starting from scratch. My vest is fine, just a few patches I need to sew on. . .

Frontier Girls… What will we learn about next? This is a newsletter to the events of what’s going on in the Creative Madness Mama Blossom School Frontier Girls Pioneer Troop… We are so excited to be starting a new year with our participation in the Frontier Girls as a Pioneer Troop. Now, my six-year-old AppleBlossom has crossed over to participate as an Otter Level this year, while my four-year-old the Princess will continue to increase her skills and badges earned as a Penguin Level again this year. In our round-up for the Penguin Level and the last year AppleBlossom earned 167 badges and the Princess earned 32 badges. However, in still trying to figure out a way to award them (as we don’t have the budget to buy every badge earned, much less the space on a vest!) we bought some of their proudest moments in badge form – the ones. . .

Creative Madness Frontier Girls

Creative Madness Mama Frontier Girls

As participants in the Frontier Girls Clubs, our home Troop is classified as Pioneers Troop #100. We are part of a plethora of individuals with parent/scouts that are not a part of a formal troop. Pioneer Program The Pioneer program is designed for girls who wish to pursue the Frontier Girls program as an individual. They do not belong to a troop, but instead, work on badges and awards under the supervision of a parent or guardian. Pioneers may band together to work on badges or participate in activities such as campouts and community service projects if they wish, but there is no official leader. The girls and parents will have to work out any arrangements necessary. If there is a troop nearby, a Pioneer may also participate in troop activities if invited. If a Pioneer wishes to have a troop number on her uniform, she can wear troop #100. . .

Who are, or rather, what is Frontier Girls?

When I was a very young elementary school student, I was a Daisy, a Girls Scouts Daisy. My next door neighbor went the full gambit of Girls Scouts I believe. Yet before I got too involved the Troop was disbanded (long story) and my scouting days were over. When I was in the later years of elementary school I participating in something of an afterschool program at a local church that was named something along the lines of Marvelous Mondays or Terrific Tuesdays or some such. We memorized creeds, prayers, and scripture and received pins for our prize as well as pride. I remember adoring those pins and that sash. In my later high school years, I knew a boy who was in a Venturing Crew. I was very interested in joining, but then I was too far away and headed off to college soon anyhow… and thus I was. . .
