Photo of the Week
Jr Troop 10136 is thanked for book donations to school.
Girl Scout Junior Troop 10136 of Fayette Manlius received a giant thank you card from a class in the Syracuse City School District to which the service unit donated books. The troop collected 240 books from other Girl Scouts at the unit's Four Seasons Tubing event in January. The books were taken to the school on Valentine's Day for children that might not have access to books of their own.
