WEST JEFFERSON — When the Ashe County Public Library asked local Girl Scouts to decorate the library for September, the Girl Scouts delivered.
Members of troops 2892, 10336, and 10381 participated in this fun event, using pumpkins, gourds and hay bales to set the fall mood. To top off the decorations, the girls dressed up the scarecrows as various aged Girl Scouts.
Ginger Greer, Leader of Brownie troop 2892 said, “I would like to thank all the girls and leaders who came out and helped at the library. The decorations look great and the girls had a great time.”
Founded in 1912, by Juliette Gordon Low, Girl Scouting strives to “build girls of courage confidence and character, who make the world a better place.” Programs are girl led, hands on, and cooperative. Nationwide there are 3.2 million Girl Scouts today. More than 59 million women in America today enjoyed Girl Scouts during their childhood.
Troops are just getting underway this school year. For more information or to register your daughter, for Girl Scouting in Ashe County, please contact Nancy Blair at [email protected] or visit the council website at http://www.girlscoutsp2p.org.
