Barnesville Senior Girl Scout Troop 5795 members include Hailey Baker, Kayla Crooks, Harleigh Howiler, Alyssa McEndree, Clara Stanley, and Kassie Steele. They are all freshmen in high school. The troop leader is Kim Crooks.
The Troop has been very busy over the last few months. In October the Troop traveled to Jewett, Ohio, to Faith Ranch and participated in Council's "Fall Fling." There they enjoyed horseback riding, hayrides, games, and archery. They also volunteered their time at the Barnesville Library's Storybook Park. They went on the "Haunted Trail" in St. Clairsville to round out the month.
During the Christmas holiday, the girls made 10 t-shirt blankets and donated them to the VFW to be given to those less fortunate. In addition, the girls hand-made Christmas cards and delivered them to Astoria Place residents to bring some holiday cheer.
In January, the girls volunteeredtheir time to help at a fundraiser for pediatric cancer that was sponsored by Brian Clouse. In February, the girls went bowling and visited Med Express inWheeling, WestVirginia ,to earn their first aid badge, make first aid kits, and take a tour of the facility. Most recently, the Troop volunteered their time at the Belmont County Animal Shelter and also took the animals some treats and toys.
The girls' next adventure is preparing for the Girl Scout Jamboree in Glen Jean, West Virginia, from June 28-July 2, 2017.
