AHG Leaders Get To Know The Great Outdoors

News from Convention:

A group of more than 75 women from around the country gained a better understanding of outdoor related activities thanks to the Trailblazer Adventure Program held recently at the American Heritage Girls National Conference for staff and volunteers near Cincinnati, Ohio.

The Trailblazer Adventure Program, a youth program of the U.S Sportsmen’s Alliance Foundation (USSAF) designed to introduce youth and families to the outdoors, and the American Heritage Girls (AHG), a Christ centered scouting organization for girls based in Cincinnati, signed a Memorandum of Understanding regarding Trailblazer on May 16, 2012.

To jump start the partnership, a Trailblazer Adventure Day was held Saturday, November 10, 2012 to introduce AHG troop leaders to the excitement of outdoor activities at Cub World located in Loveland, Ohio.

Troop leaders experienced numerous outdoor related activities such as archery, target shooting and fly fishing, as well as Dutch oven cooking demonstrations from Camp Chef and hands on displays by the National Wild Turkey Federation.

“We were all given one on one instruction for every activity,” said Jennifer Gross, AHG troop leader from Louisville, Kentucky. “It was just great getting to try something new.”

Convention Go-ers — One To Snap Up!

Jim Weiss of Greathall Productions has announced this on his Facebook page:

Randy and I leave Tuesday morning for Mason, Ohio, for the American Heritage Girls conference.  At the conference, we will offer the new, custom recording below, and we’ll have all the others with us, too. I will also teach how to write and tell stories, and tell a  few, myself. We will offer the new recording at the conference.

AFTER THE CONFERENCE, this new recording will be available to purchase EXCLUSIVELY by ordering through AHG. And yes, at the AHG conference, I will happily autograph the cover… The new recording includes brand new stories on Dolley Madison, on Julia Ward Howe (“The Battle Hymn of the Republic”), and on the founding of AHG itself. In addition, there are new, or newly modified, stories about Sacagawea, and about Lewis & Clark (other versions of which appear on our Greathall recording “Gone West”); and on the life of Harriet Tubman (the original version being on our Greathall recording “Women in Blue or Gray”.) These, plus the three new ones, form the AHG recording.
