MEIGS COUNTY — Girl Scouts from around Meigs County have been taking part in several community projects in recent weeks.
Girl Scouts participated in making lap blankets for residents at Overbrook, as well as making cards for the residents.
Big Bend Girl Scouts also spent time Christmas caroling outside the windows at Overbrook.
Girl Scouts also volunteered at the Wreaths Across America event last Saturday, placing wreaths on the graves of veterans at Meigs Memory Gardens. (See more on this story inside this edition and online at the Sentinel’s website.)
Troop members also wrote thank you cards for the military, mailing the cards to soldiers from Meigs County stationed around the country.
Dog treats were made and donated to the Meigs County Canine Rescue and Adoption Center this fall.
Goodie bags were also created for local first responders, as well as mask holders, cards and candy for local doctors and nurses.
There are more than 40 Girl Scouts in Meigs County in four troops.
