From around the council...

Germantown Troop 10754 is renting a beach house for a week in Gulf Shores (June 11-18) with our cookie money.  Besides spending relaxing and fun time on the beach, we'll be spending a day at a local water park and another day touring the USS Alabama Battleship, located at Mobile Bay.  We also plan to attend the Gulf Coast Hot Air Balloon Festival and shopping at the famous Tanger Outlet Mall.  

Troop 40119 from Medina TN is using their profits for a weekend trip to St. Louis to visit the City Museum and Six Flags.

Troop 20250 is buying Brownie and Daisy books and plans on taking an end of summer trip.
