AHG and Trail Life Mtg POSTPONED until March 27th

Trail Life Troop 12 meeting originally for March 20th is postponed until Thursday, March 27th at 7pm due to a scheduling conflict that was not made clear to the Trail Life or American Heritage Girls troops impacted by it until earlier today.

This mix up impacts our first regular meeting and a second informational meeting but it was an honest communication issue and apologies have been issued. Since we all operate under grace it’s time to dispense some of that grace to others and overcome this challenge.

BTW, if anyone misses this notice or just wants to take kids to the park there will still be a couple of folks there from the troop to provide information. We’ll direct people over to the Carter Creek Park adjacent to the Tejas Center (next to McDonald’s) for a smaller, more casual TLUSA meeting.

Informational Meeting (rescheduled):

Thursday, March 27th

7-8pm

Tejas Center in Bryan, TX

Please join us at the Community Homeschool Center (CHC) at the Life Church building in the Tejas Center, 725 E. Villa Maria, Bryan, TX 77802 on Thursday, March 27 at 7pm.

Our first Troop 12 Trail Life meeting will be Thursday, March 27, 6:30-8pm, at the Tejas Center. After the boys begin, parents/boys unable to attend the March 6th meeting can attend an informational session starting about 7pm.

Trail Life USA is a national faith based outdoor leadership program for boys K-12+. If your family is looking for an outdoor adventure program similar to scouting but with a moral foundation more consistent with your family’s traditional values then please join us to learn about a new troop forming in our area.

Walk Worthy.

THSC Gala Auction Items needed

Hi there, Homeschoolers!

As many of you know, the THSC is our greatest resource and reason we have such freedom here in Texas. The Gala, their largest fundraiser of the year is coming, and any organization is invited to donate items, or a full basket for their upcoming silent auction. Ours is themed “On the Homefront.” Think of ways to help/ beautify/ improve/ make more fun/ a home and keep it in the color scheme of red, white and blue. We’ll put it together and let the great Gala Auction Committee do their magic. We’re asking each CHC member to donate one item (or more!) I’ve listed some ideas below:

We just typed in “Texas Themed…..” in the Amazon.com search box. I personally, am on the look out for a Texas Garlic press for my donation (but won’t be hurt a bit if someone beats me to it!)

ANY organization can get it on helping – if you’d like your organization or Co-op to be mentioned on the THSC website and at the Gala, this is a great way to do it! If your donations don’t quite make up an auction basket, the Gala committee will combine it with other donated items.

Charity Judah and Brenda Harris, are both checkpoints for this event – so drop items off at the CHC by April 10, or contact one of those lovely ladies.

Spread the word!

coasters, kitchen towels, napkins, candles, salt and pepper shakers, pot holders, cupcake tins, cookie cutters, small wall decor, fun straws, coozies, paper towel holders, placemats… lemon juicers, dessert plates, spoon rest, ranch-style pans…. ALLLL kinds of stuff!
