Troop 512 Travel to Savannah, Georgia

Junior Troop 512 from the Oak Mountain Service Unit recently returned from a five day trip to Savannah, Georgia (June 1-5, 2009). Seven scouts, six adults, and one lucky little brother tagalong stayed in the historic district of the city and enjoyed an itinerary jam-packed with activities. Girls participated in Confederate history at Old Fort Jackson, took a horse drawn carriage ride at night, spotted many dolphins on a cruise of the Savannah River, and earned the Coastal Georgia badge at Tybee Island. Of course, no Girl Scout trip to Savannah is complete without a tour of the Juliette Gordon Low birthplace, where girls and moms dressed in pinafores and played parlor games from the 1870s era. To top it all off, troop 512 bridged from Juniors to Cadettes in one of Savannah's downtown squares on our last evening there. The troop worked hard to earn money for the trip through the fall product sale, cookie sale, and two troop garage sales. Participants were Girl Scouts Sarah, Kaitlyn, Lauren, Hannah, Kelley, Sarah and Skyler. Adults were Randy and Brenae Dunaway with tagalong Kasey Hill, Dee Caldera, Celia Landrum, Donna Leonelli, and leader Sheila McCallum.
