|My Girl Scouts started as Brownies. Here they're marching in a local Memorial Day parade.|
We went marching, camping, recycling and canoeing, as well as demonstrating how to handle fire for the Firemen’s special day in September. What’s the proper way to light a candle? How do you stop a fire on top of the stove? What do you do if you’re clothes are on fire? I often wonder if anyone ever had to use that lifesaving information.

Now my granddaughter is an avid Girl Scout. When GS cookies come out, I’m probably the first one on her list. But she doesn’t stop with me. Everyone gets a call, and she also sells them with her troop at different grocery stores.
|She really puts all her artistic talants to work.|
How about you? Have you found your experiences with being a leader or a member of a troop excellent fodder for your writing?
