Issue #4 – December 2014
Limited Store Hours For Dec. and Jan
The Quest store will be open part time from Dec. 18 – Dec. 31 as we take our Christmas vacations. Orders will still ship out, but will take longer than usual. Please allow at least 3 weeks to receive orders placed during this time. The store will also be completely closed from Jan. 1 – Jan. 7 for inventory purposes. All orders placed during this time will ship as soon as we complete taking end of year inventory.
Annual January Badge Sale!!
It is time for our annual Badge Sale. All badges will be 10% off for the month of January so plan accordingly. Keep in mind that due to end of year inventory and the sale prices, we will be busier than normal and orders may take longer than usual to ship out. Please plan at least 3 weeks to receive your order.
The following badges were recently added to the website:
Animal Tracking, Narnia, Automotive Maintenance, Marbles, Rockets, Music Group Fan, Letter Writing, My Community and Veterinarian, Iditarod

WHO IS UP TO THE CHALLENGE?
With the cold weather ahead many children are in need of warm articles this season. Frontier Girls Troop #148 has been challenged by Cub Scout Pack# 334 and as a result Frontier Girls Troop #148 is officially challenging EVERY member of Frontier Girls and Quest Clubs. So here is the challenge, find an organization near you that provides for needy families during the holidays. Empty out your closets of all warm clothing you youngsters have out grown. And dona…te them. In addition make homemade scarves in the medium of your choice. (Cubs are using fleece.) Make as many as you can. And donate these as well. The goal is to donate them to a group that gives it away not sell them. If you choose to accept the challenge please comment on our Facebook Frontier Girls And Quest Clubs Group with how many items you collected.
