St. Anthony Park United Church of Christ; the oldest continuous charter partner in Northern Star Council, Boy Scouts of America; is forming a girl troop.
The girl troop, for girls ages 11-17, will be linked with Boy Scout Troop 17, sharing organization, leadership, and equipment. To become an official, the girls troop will need at least five girls and one female leader. The girl troop will have its own leadership and patrols, so that both boys and girls will have many opportunities for leadership in their troops. The units can function as independently or as mutually as they choose. “We are looking for interested girls and adult leaders,” said Mike Smith, Troop 17 scoutmaster. For further information, contact Smith at 651-398-5552 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
