Show your gratitude for Community Helpers

FiremanSamRescueontheWaterOur church from where we lived before was an interesting group of people. More often than not, there were mamas with children in tow, but daddy wasn’t there. At first glance you’d think he might not be the church going type, but once you got to know these families we discovered those daddys were anything but. They were heroes. A larger portion of our congregation was made up of Firemen! These firefighters spent their weekend on guard protecting our community and keeping everyone safe from harm.

Fireman Sam is a fun example!

HIT Entertainment has a great set of Rescue Friends for your youngest to watch too!

September Frontier Girls Pioneer Newsletter

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.

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. . .
