Members of the Exeter, Troop 390, have been working on some of the badges in the Junior girls scout level.

On Friday, with no school, the girls spent the day working on their Let's Get Cooking badge while making items to sell at the Exeter Avenue Holiday Sampler. They made lots of cinnamon popcorn, Halloween mix (sweet and salty mix) as well as puppy chow. The girls also bagged up all of the products they made and some that were homemade by others and donated.

Together the girls made smoothies and nachos for lunch. They spent some of their day making posters for the sale the next day. They celebrated the birthday of the founder of girl scouts, Juliette Lowe, with a cake made by Tara Mueller.

After cooking and packaging on Friday, the girls and their leaders worked all day Saturday at the Holiday Sampler almost selling out of their product. Girls in the troop are: Josie Hulse, Hannah Beethe, Kaitlyn Vavra, Janey Erdkamp, Tara Mueller, and Vicki Androyna. Their leaders are Becky Erdkamp and Anita Mueller.
