March 4th each year is a day of action when Frontier Girls and Quest members “March Forth” across the nation to spread the word about our programs and learn about other Frontier Girls and Quest members around the country. Members participate in activities and projects with national themes to honor their fellow Frontier Girls and Quest members in other regions and states. March 4th(Forth!) not only gives members a chance to celebrate inter-state or county friendships, but is also a reminder that they are part of a nationwide community. The date March 4th was chosen as it is also the date that the first American Congress convened, marking the beginning of America as we know it today as they prepared to “march forth” as a nation. Each year members can sign up for our SWAPS program to make friends with other members across the nation on March 4th. SWAPS are small craft items that can be pinned for display somewhere on a jacket, a backpack, a sash, or a scarf and is a perfect way for members to meet each other and promote friendship. SWAP stands for “Souvenir With A Purpose”, " Some Whatchamacallit Pinned Somewhere", "Switch With A Pal", or any other acronym you can come up with. Each swap should have a safety pin on the item to attach to your display. Ideas for celebrating the day: March Forth!
