Giving back and thinking of others is a part of what makes a Girl Scout so great. Recently, Troop 681 wrote and sent a care package to 303rd Military Intelligence Battalion. In return, a flag was flown in their honor on the 24th of May 2012. The girls received the flag in the mail with a certificate thanking them for their support of the military. Troop 681 has decided to donate the flag to the council! Thanks and awesome job ladies! 


Enjoy a weekend getaway with your girlfriends with fun activities like massages, horseback riding and wine tasting.  The 2012 S'more Soiree Girlfriend Getaway Weekend is set to take place November 3-4 at Lake Travis!
