The money is a big source of the troop’s finances. Some of it is used by the girls to pay for whatever fun activities the girls plan for themselves. Earning the money that you use to later enjoy some shared goal is a great lesson. But being a Girl Scout isn’t all about fun. The girls choose their own activities, but some of the activities they choose to do are service activities.
Last weekend, M and K’s troop (Maggie is a leader of the troop) renovated a garden dedicated to a fellow local scout who died of cancer. Chelsea’s garden is at North Elementary School here in town.Posted by James at April 25, 2006 9:26 AM
