Things are starting to heat up, not only the weather, but the Y-Guides upcoming year.
August is going to be a fun month for us.
We have the Little Chief's Longhouse on the 19th, and at this meeting we will pick the winners of the patch design contest. All of our kids are invited to submit their designs for the Papoose events, the train ride, fishing outing and the Christmas party. Then at the Longhouse the children of the Chief's and Assistant Chief's will pik the winners.
Get your designs in to me or Brian by the 16th.
Speaking of the 16th. That is the day we are going to Fort Worth to see the Cats play baseball. We'll begin our day at the local city park, enjoying a hamburger and hot dog cook out. Then we'll head over to the ballpark for a fun family night. Let me know how many tickets you'll need so I can get them purchased.
On the 26th we'll have another Dad's meeting, at Buffalo Wild Wings. 297 and Debbie Lane in Mansfield. 6:30 - 8:00.
Our topic? The YMC carnival.
Speaking of the YMCA Carnival. That is on August 30th, from 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM at the Central YMCA branch.
This is our big recruiting event to kick off the year, so we need everyone to be there, to help man our booth.
Our booth will consist of crafts (wampum bags and spin art), a game of bust the balloons, and an old fashioned lemonade stand with cookies and cupcakes.
We'll have lots of beads to hand out and maybe we'll make some new friends.
Everyone should have their time slots and assignments, so let's get busy gettin' busy.
And finally, I am please to announce that the newest edition of The Smoke Signal is now posted on the YMCA website. I am really pleased to have had the opportunity to contribute to the program by taking over as newsletter editor and taking the title of Federation Drum Beater.
It is both a pleasure, and an honor to serve the Y Guides and our kids.

So as you can see we'll be running full steam in just a few weeks, and before you know it we'll be back out there campng again, only 58 dqays until our first camp out at Dinosaur Valley.
A happy summer to all..............
