troops on the move

1.  More than 30 Girl Scouts from Hall County recently visited the Hall County Courthouse to learn about their local, state and federal government.  Probate Judge Patty Walters Laine led girls through a tour of the courthouse and taught them about compromise, mediation and the voting process.

2.  Girl Scout Troop #11728 from Cleveland, Georgia, took a wonderful camping trip this summer.  They visited Lake Winnepesaukah and Ruby Falls in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  The girls learned some history, explored caves and enjoyed the local amusement park.  At the campsite, they built a fire, pitched their own tents and built a shelter to protect their belongings from the rain.

3.  Using the proceeds from this past year's Girl Scout Cookie Program, Girl Scout Cadettes from Columbus area Troop #50105 recently visited Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure in Orlando, Florida.

4.  Girl Scout Juniors from Columbus area Troop #50105 set a goal of raising enough money during this year's Girl Scout Cookie Program to visit Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.  They successfully reached their goal and made the trip this summer.
