Newsleaders staff report
Were you a Girl Scout in the ‘70s and ‘80s in St. Joseph area? If so, former Troop Leaders Delores Giroux and Sharon Toogood Froehle would love to see you again. The event will be from 3-6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 27, at Giroux’s home, 103 Minnesota St. E. RSVP by Thursday, Dec. 20, to Froehle at 320-493-8493 or Stoogoodfroehle@gmail.com.
The organizers have scrapbooks made by Girl Scouts in the ‘70s and ‘80s filled with tons of pictures from events at Peck’s farm, riding horseback, making crafts, ice fishing at the tournament on Lake Minnewaska in Glenwood, visiting nursing homes and camping at Smokey Timbers. Giroux, troop leader for Junior Troop 130, and Froehle recently got together to look at the scrapbooks and reminisce about all of the fun they had while earning Girl Scout badges. “We talked about how wonderful it would be to see the young ladies from the Girl Scout troops and fellow troop leaders,” Froehle said in a statement. “Delores and I are inviting all the girls and leaders who were Girl Scouts with us in the ‘70s and ‘80s to the reunion. We need all of you to pass this invite to girls and leaders who you still have contact with,” Froehle wrote. “Many of our Scouts have moved away, so please share this invitation with your friends and family that were Girl Scouts.”
