During the weekend of June 5, 2015, the Zeta Youth Affiliate of Covington Amicettes held their first Retreat in Warrenton, Georgia. This was their first opportunity to spend two full days together, away from mom, dad and electronic devices (this was an electronic-free weekend). The weekend was jammed-packed with activities from volley ball, bike riding, basketball, horse shoe tossing, obstacle courses, make up time (girls that fell asleep awoke with made up faces), red rover, round-table discussions, planning their activities for the upcoming year, eating smores, cooking chores and more importantly bonding as a team. The girls really matured over the two days; the quiet girls displayed more outgoing personalities. The advisors were amazed at how well the girls adapted to no electronics and how well they learned to communicated with each other.
The girls are so pumped that they are asking when their meetings will start again. Many thanks go out to the advisors, Soror Felicia Arnold and Soror Marilyn Barton and a very big thank you to Soror Vickie Mitchell for her untiring support and mentoring of the advisors. On to next year!!
