Cadette Troop make last­ing mem­o­ries at Dis­ney

The Kutztown Area Patriot - - LOCAL NEWS - By Linda Yuen­gel Fleet­wood Girl Scout Ser­vice Unit Man­ager

Fleet­wood Girl Scout Cadette Troop 1773 re­al­ized the re­sults of their hard work with a trip this sum­mer from Fleet­wood to Dis­ney World, Florida.

The Girl Scouts spent 2 ½ years plan­ning and sav­ing for this trip. They washed cars, sold hoa­gies, held yard sales and col­lected alu­minum cans to name a few of their money earn­ing en­deav­ors. Of course, they also did the usual Girl Scout Nut/Candy/Mag­a­zine sale and Girl Scout Cookie sale. The girls were fru­gal with their money, sav­ing ev­ery last penny to re­al­ize their dream.

Along the way, they learned to bud­get, how to keep a check book, the art of com­pro­mise, and how long it takes to save for big dreams. These girls worked tire­lessly to achieve their goal, and while some days that goal seemed very far away, they never gave up. Dur­ing this jour­ney, they also found a way to help oth­ers. While they col­lected the alu­minum cans for cash, they also saved the tabs and do­nated those to the Shriners.

In prepa­ra­tion for the trip, the girls made their own cus­tom tie dyed Tshirts so it would be eas­ier to find each other in the amuse­ments parks.

The Troop en­joyed time in all four theme parks, Ep­cot, Magic King­dom, Hol­ly­wood Stu­dios and An­i­mal King­dom. The girls had a great time mak­ing mem­o­ries with their fel­low Girl Scouts that will last a life­time.
