Locals visit Girl-Scouts-in-training on March 19
Two special visitors came to the Daisy Troop 1405 meeting on Tuesday, March 19, to talk about being courageous and strong. Local firefighters Lillian Moser of the Cold Spring Fire Company and Kristin VanTassel of the North Highlands Fire Department talked to the girls about the courage and strength needed to be in a dangerous profession such as firefighting, as well as the difficulties of being one of few women in the typically male field. The girls recited the Girl Scout Promise and sang “America the Beautiful” for their guests.
The girls, all kindergartners, began meeting in October and have completed the Sunny, Zinni and Tula Petals, plus the Count It Up and Talk It Up Leaves, which are earned when learning about the cookie business. The girls sold a total of 965 boxes of cookies during their recent cookie sale.
