Troop 1236 Has Trusty Bovine

Shrek may have a noble steed, but Troop 1236 of Florence has a trusty bovine. The troop sponsored a cow for the Holy Herd of St. Francis. "Trusty" will be on display in front of the St. Joseph Catholic Church Girl Scout House throughout the month of October. Trusty the Bovine has been their troop mascot since 2008 when they did a dairy products themed badge. The idea of a cow as their mascot came about after they found great amusement in trying to get Girl Scouts to have a serious discussion at 2AM about the history of bovines in farming.
