Brownie Troop 67474 helps unload more than 2,000 pumpkins

Submitted by Leslie Curtis

Girls from brand-new Brownie Troop 67474 helped to unload more than 2,000 pumpkins in order to give back to the church where our troop meetings and our service unit meetings are held. The troop nor any of the families are affiliated with the church, but they have been very generous to Girl Scouts and the girls wanted to help them in return. The girls worked for more than two hours, carrying pumpkins up a hill without complaining. They did an amazing job representing Girl Scouts and we are so proud of them!
