The Importance of Singing

The Importance of Singing

by Kerry Cordy Every meeting of Frontier Girls Troop #101 starts in song.  Why?  Music is a huge part of our culture.  It expresses emotion, sets mood, engages people and allows them to interact with others.  Singing with your girls can set the tone for your whole meeting. Singing silly, active songs at the beginning of a meeting helps get the wiggles out, starts the girls off with laughter and giggles, and at the same time provides a cohesive activity that everyone can be involved in.  Transitioning to quieter songs helps get everyone calmed down and ready to pay attention

The history of the Service flag is as patriotic and touching as the symbolism each star represents in the families that display them.

Patriotic, Polite, and Well Prepared Young Ladies – A New Symbol for Frontier Girls

Patriotic, Polite, and Well Prepared Young Ladies – A New Symbol for  Frontier Girls

Every girl in Frontier Girls is encouraged to earn, at the very least, the Patriotism badge, Etiquette badge, and Emergency Preparedness badge at every level of Frontier Girls.  By requiring the girls to constantly review what they have learned and add to that knowledge as they get older, our goal is to have every girl who goes through the Frontier Girl program emerge as a patriotic, polite and well prepared young lady.  To help encourage the girls in this goal, we have developed a new symbol to help represent Frontier Girls. The star in the center represents the patriotism we hope to

What is it about our country that inspires such strong feelings in its citizens? What exactly is this American Spirit we hear about so often? Encourage your children to think about what kind of country they live in. What opportunities and freedoms are available to them that other countries do not offer? Once they understand why they should
