Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland is proud to offer the Three Fires Weekend for members of Cherokee Ridge’s Ikhato, Latonka’s Osage Society and Mintahama’s Tribe of the Silver Arrow. Also invited will be those who have attended summer camp at Finbrooke Program Center for at least 4 years and are in at least the 7th grade.
- GSMH supports the idea of these organizations, but because we are one council now, we need to have one consistent organization, not several. Opportunities, requirements and basic initiation procedures need to be the same across the board.
- GSMH wants members of the current organization to be the ones who lay the foundation for the new organization. Discussions on this subject and planning for the future will be the major focus of discussion during the Three Fires event.
- One organization will be stronger than three — by working together to plan this merger, we will be able to maintain those parts of our traditions that are most sacred to us.
