Big  Lake Girl Scouts from Troop 39 enjoyed their annual winter party and put together 23 birthday bags to donate to the Big Lake Food Shelf last Saturday at Lion’s Park.
Senior Girl Scouts and cadettes from Troop 39 hosted the party. They entertained over 40 Girl Scouts, Brownies and Daisies with games, sing-alongs, crafts and hot cocoa and popcorn.
“They had been hoping to play outside, painting the snow with Koolaid, said Volunteer Leader Kathy Vetter. “But the 15 degree weather and gusting winds brought the party indoors.”
The birthday bags contain all the makings of a birthday party, with cake mix, frosting and candles to party favors.
“Support your local girl scouts,” said Vetter. “Cookie sales begin Feb. 8.”
