About the Photo 

 

Troop 2396 spent a memorable day volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House preparing meals. The Cross Plains troop not ony prepped the food they also planned meals then purchased the ingredients with a donation from the John Deere Employee/Volunteer fund.

Put Your Troop in the Spotlight!

What's your troop up to? Let us share your troop's story in upcoming Badgerland Banners. Send two or three troop photos and the following information:

  • Troop number and city
  • Troop member names
  • Your troop's favorite thing to do
  • Favorite troop memory
  • What you're planning working on this year (community service projects, outings, etc.)

Make sure the girls all have parental permission to release their photographs publicly. We won't be able to use all the stories and photos in the Banner but watch  for them to show up in other Badgerland publications.
