Registration update from Laura Ruffridge at the Hub. The Vista is at 60% of goal for the number of girls registered…that’s down 500 girls. We need to do a second wave of recruitment at schools, particularly to recruit adult volunteers for new troops. Please ask anyone who might be interested in being a leader to volunteer…it doesn’t need to be a parent of a girl in the troop.
