When you think about Girl Scouts the first thing that comes to mind is little girls dressed in green or brown vests selling cookies in front of the grocery stores. But that’s not what Girl Scouts is all about. It’s about connecting with your community and making the world a better place. Many people don’t even know that Girl Scouts continue through the end of High School.
After 12-13 years as Girl Scouts, Troop 4373 graduated from high school on Saturday, May 21 at House of Prayer Lutheran Church. The church is located at the corner of Rose and Mission in Escondido.
Heavily involved within the Escondido community these girls have served a combined total of more than 1,000 community service hours. Doing such activities as serving in the Memorial Day ceremony at Oak Hill Memorial Park, mentoring young girls, marching in the Escondido Christmas Parade, assisting at elementary schools, serving at the homeless shelter, making food for local fire stations and running a free Halloween Carnival for community members.
