Girl Scouts from all over the world recently gathered
together in Washington DC to attend Rock the Mall, a celebration of
the Girl Scouts 100th year. Among those Girl Scouts was Troop 7323
from Mosinee. The troop is made up of seven 12-year-old girls.
While at the event girls celebrated by participating in
sing-along and flash mob activities. According to troop leader Leah Bruess, both
of these events were part of record breaking attempts. However, the girls also
got the chance to see several historical documents. Some included the Declaration
of Independence and the Bill of Rights. Tours were also on the list of things the
girls could do. They visited Washington
DC landmarks such as, the Lincoln
Memorial, the Martin Luther King Memorial and several more.
The girls should be very proud of their accomplishments as Bruess
said, "this trip was made possible through the girls'
hard work selling cookies, having brat frys and spaghetti dinners, planning
Girl Scout events, and participating in craft shows and plant sales".
