Troops 81 and 83 Travel to Atlanta and Asheville

December has been a great time to travel for First Presbyterian Church of Talladega's Girl Scout Troops 81 & 83. First the girls traveled with their moms to see the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina for the Candlelight Christmas Tour. There were Christmas trees in every room, lots of musicians throughout the home and beautiful decorations including a magnificent 35-foot Christmas tree. The girls also toured the Biltmore Winery, ate a special dinner in the Deerpark Restaurant and attended the Dickens Christmas Festival in the Biltmore Village.

The Girl Scouts also traveled to see the King Tut Exhibition in Atlanta entitled Tutankhamun- The Golden King and The Great Pharaohs. It has 130 objects from the tomb of King Tut and other famous Egyptian pharaohs. This was a special trip for the girls because most of the objects have never been seen in the United States.
