  • Thank you 04-21-11

    Girl Scout Troops appreciate help

    Junior Girl Scout Troop 557 and Brownie Girl Scout Troop 116 would like to send out a heartfelt thank you to Bethlehem Lutheran Church.  When our local Girl Scout organization lost its venue to host the annual Brownie Sleepover, Bethlehem Lutheran graciously opened its doors. This church has always provided meeting space to many groups in town, including our troop’s bimonthly meetings.
    The sleepover was a great success! The church’s spacious kitchen and open layout enhanced many hours of fun including; cooking, crafts, scavenger hunt, singing and dancing.  Everyone left a little tired, but very happy.
    Thanks again for being such a great example of what community is all about!
