Out & About - January

christmasCreative Christmas: Troop 482 paid a visit to their local assisted living home in Cedar Park this past holiday season. The Cadette troop made and decorated festive pins for the residents to wear. During their stay, the girls sang a variety of holiday music and spoke about the upcoming 100th Anniversary. A few of the girls had the honor of conversing with a 95-year-old resident who started with Girl Scouts in the beginning. Thank you Troop 482 for giving back this holiday season! Did you or your troop give back during the holidays? Share with us onFacebook!

The drive was hosted by Marine’s Toys for Tots and the foundation collected truckloads of toys. Since 1991, the foundation has collected 81.3 million toys and made lots of less fortunate kids have a happy holiday. Great job girls for helping collect toys!
