Local Girl Scouts Learn Value of Work as They Earn Their Way to Camp, LIVINGSTON, April 20, 2015 - Girl Scout Troop 101002 has been working hard getting ready for summer activities. Troop Leader Kim Hastings said that the girls are excited about the upcoming summer and have played a very big roll in working hard to raise money. This year they have sold over 3,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies in February and March, of which 120 boxes were given to F.A.I.T.H. (Families and Individuals Thanking Heroes) military support group, which is located here in Livingston. The cookies are to be shipped overseas to our US soldiers. "When this Troop began, I only had 3 to 4 girls and now I have 7 that are very faithful" said Hastings. This past Saturday the Troop spent most of their day preparing and selling hot dogs and baked goods in front of O'Reilly's Auto Parts and had a good response from the community. Rob Herring, manager of O'Reilly's was outside showing his support and is always willing to let them use the parking lot whenever they ask. One of the main things that this Troop is wanting is support, not just monetary but to be encouraged in all they do, from helping out at local churches, to the many service projects that they are involved in around the community. One of the next projects you will be hearing about is the birdhouses all around town. The Troop will be assembling, painting, hanging and keeping the bird houses maintained. "I couldn't ask for a better group of mom's who are such a huge help. Dad's are very supportive as well" added Hastings. Those that were on hand on Saturday were Co Leader Dion Frolic and mom Kim Collins and the girls that were in attendance to help with the hot dogs and goodies were Tiffany, Trisha, Kayla H, Kayla E, Cheyenne, Rebekah and last but certainly not least, Mahalia.
