Message from Brownie Troop 97332:

We have been a troop for just over 2 years, we started our 3rd year this school year.  We recently “bridged” from Daisy’s to Brownies. For the last 2 years we have given back to our community in several ways: We have donated and helped out at St Michaels Food Pantry, we had a car at the Netcong Trunk or Treat, written get well notes to sick kids in the hospital and made some seniors holiday cards last year and gave them out to those that may not have any other communication during the holidays.  We are planning on a trip to visit a nursing home this year to sing holiday songs for those that cannot get out this holiday season. The girl scouts are a group that loves to give back to our community. If anyone has a suggestion for our troop to give back to our community please feel free to contact our leaders: OR
