Sept 23 Meeting

We were planning on meeting outside on September 23, but due to the very bad rain and wind in the forecast, we’ve decided to meet online tomorrow, instead! We’ll be brainstorming a whole bunch of amazing program and event ideas for the year!

Bring your creative energy and ideas for events that can be done in person an online, and – bonus – check out the Girls First platform in advance for some inspiration from GGC!

Welcome to the 2020/2021 Pathfinder Year!

We’re excited for a new Pathfinder year! Guiding will be different than we’ve known in the past due to the continued impacts of COVID-19 on our communities, and we’re looking forward to connecting with all of you in an online and outdoor blended Guiding model to start of the year.

Our first meeting will be on Wednesday September 16 at 6:45 pm on Zoom. The link to join the meeting is below.

At this meeting, we’ll review what’s new for this year, discuss the return to in-person Guiding and the important changes and actions to help keep us safe, learn about the Pathfinder program, and get to know one another!

Parents, please plan to participate for the first ~20 minutes of the online meeting on the 16th to learn about the important initiatives and updated health and safety requirements for in-person Guiding this year. Check out this information on the GGC website to learn more about how GGC is welcoming girls back this year.

We’ve also sent out a “welcome to Pathfinders” email to all families with lots of important information about the year, unit nuts and bolts, etc., so check your email and get in touch with Karla if you didn’t receive it.
