Saturday--Waco Cultural Arts Fest Outing

We are attending the Waco Cultural Arts Festival as a troop on Saturday and can hopefully do all the activities to earn our artist/drawing badges (brownies/juniors) and the cadettes can take the first step in their book artist badge.  Wear play clothes (we might get paint on us).  Meet at the cow statue in front of the suspension bridge at 10am and again at noon for pickup.  There is no cost to attend but each girl may want a few dollars to buy a drink or a snack/lunch.
