Girl Scout Troop 479 to hold yard sale Saturday (April 10)

Sylvan Park's Girl Scout Troop 479 will hold a yard sale this Saturday, April 10, from 7 a.m. to noon at 4413 Dakota Avenue.

Proceeds from the sale will cover costs for the troop for its upcoming trip to Savannah, Ga., to visit the birthplace of Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon Lowe and the original Girl Scouts headquarters. More information is included below from organizers Leslie Kirby and Ann Tappan. If you would like to donate items for the sale, there's still time: Email Leslie at leslieandcraig@comcast.net for more information.
At the end of this school year, our girls, some of whom have been in the troop at Sylvan Park since kindergarten, will be bridging to Juniors, which is the next age level in Girl Scouting.  We will be traveling, along with some of the 4th grade Girl Scouts at Sylvan Park, in June to Savannah, Georgia to visit the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Lowe, the founder of Girl Scouting.  We'll also be visiting the original Girl Scout Headquarters and doing other fun & learning activities in and around Savannah, including the beach and lighthouse at Tybee Island.  Girl Scouting focuses on helping girls be strong and independent, and emphasizes physical, emotional and spiritual growth.  We think this trip will help instill a sense of history and pride in the girls and also help them bond even more deeply as a group, which will be really important as they transition into middle school.

While we're on the subject of yard sales, don't forget that the annual SPNA yard sale is coming up on Saturday, May 15.
