Girl Scout Troop 51008 (Junior Girl Scout Troop) is made up of nine girls in the fifth grade at Barnesville Middle School. The girls have been busy working on earning their Bronze Award. In the Fall, we participated in the nut sale with our top sellers being Kennedy Little and Raegan Lucas. They also entered the pumpkin decorating contest at the Pumpkin Festival and donated and served at a benefit dinner.

They have been active in the First United Methodist Church’s Blessings in a Backpack Program, where the girls have donated items, sorted, and packed the backpacks to be distributed. In addition, the girls have been earning a cooking badge with the Barnesville Library’s Fun Food Rocks Program. We are finishing up cookie sales and our top sellers were Kamryn Neiswonger and Brooklyn Miller.

They are currently assisting with collecting items for the Bedtime Bags as a Barnesville Service Unit that will help Foster Hope Ohio Valley.
