Today, Katie Reifsteck, leader of Troop 5055, shares the story of how Girl Scouts in her troop celebrated Girl Scout Week.


Our troop has 6 girls, all 4th graders. Each year we set aside time to talk about Girl Scouts, who we are and what we mean, what we can do in the world to make it a better place.
