Local Girl Scout Troop visits Washington DC

Posted:

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 However, the girls also got the chance to see several historical documents.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".

Congratulations to Girl Scout Troop 7323!
