As promised I want to share what some of the girls and troops from around the council are doing to help others this holiday season. There have been so many troops doing their part to make the world a better place over the last few weeks. It really is a special thing for girls to help out in their communities and do service to others. It shows them they are not too small to make a difference. Please share your story with us. You can post pics and tidbits to our Facebook wall.

It’s the Little Things…
