Last night was my first Community Meeting of the year. (Communities are what my Council is now calling what used to be Service Units, Neighborhoods, etc. – the local volunteer run geographic regions.) It was for the Community my newer Troop is in. My first Troop is in a different Community – the one I helped set a good foundation for. They won’t be meeting for another couple of weeks.
I was super excited about last night’s meeting, though. I had sent out the meeting info to the Troop, and invited everyone to come – especially the parents who were thinking about stepping up to be leaders this year. I got a response! I knew at least one mom was going to be coming! This has never happened before.
And yay, she actually showed up. And then another one showed up. With a friend from her homeschooling group who wanted to have her 6 year old join. And then another showed up. Holy cow, our Troop had 5 people representing, and 2 had already definitely told me that they would be leaders! I brought the one I knew about ahead of time the Junior Leader Binder I made up, but I will have to get the Brownie Leader hers at our planning meeting next week.
O.M.G. I might actually get this Troop out of the nest and flying on their own!
