Girl Scouts of Troop 2486, Gray Court practiced etiquette and manners at a social event held at the Vance House Antiques and Restaurant .
Using antique teacups and china in a seated formal setting, 15 young ladies accompanied by their parents earned yet another badge in the troop’s ongoing effort to educate its scouts in a variety of projects and activities. The girls had previously studied table manners and etiquette.
Michelle Teague is the troop leader which consists of 23 girls including Brownies, Cadets, Daisies, Juniors and Seniors.
Linda Isbell is the Cadet and Senior leader, Suzanne Reagan is the Junior leader, Stacy Salone is the troop secretary and Teague is the Brownie leader.
“We have 23 girls. Most troops have around ten members but we never turn a girl away,” said Teague. “We always welcome one more.”
The troop meets weekly at Greenpond United Methodist Church and is constantly working on new projects, activities and community service projects.
“Sunday’s event was a huge success and we were impressed with our girls and what they had learned,” said Isbell. “Our Junior scouts are starting to work on their Bronze Awards. Scouting is important to girls and we constantly strive to expose them to a variety of projects. We have exciting events planned for 2010.”
