On Monday, December 13, a group of Girl Scouts representing our Council trekked to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Once there, they braved the line in 30 degree temperatures. Why? Because this group of Girl Scouts knew they were about to experience something big — a trip inside the White House to view the holiday decorations.
The White House holiday theme this year is Simple Gifts – a celebration of friends, family and home; something that Girl Scouts can relate to. The girls brought cameras and were able to capture their own images of the White House’s beautiful decor.
As they wandered through the Green Room and Red Room, the Girl Scouts were reminded to be thankful for the Simple Gifts in life.
