Girl Scout Troop #1 To Celebrate 20 Years of Mackinac Island Service

Girl Scouts Michigan Waterways Council Troop #1 from Port Huron is celebrating 20 years of service in the Mackinac Island Scout Service Camp program this year, and alumni will gather for a reunion at the Scout Barracks Sunday, August 17.

Activities will include lunch, tours, and children's crafts and games. Displays will be arranged in the dining hall, and a special commemorative patch and T-shirt have been designed for the occasion, said Jan Robertjohn, an adult volunteer with the troop.

In January 2009, the Girl Scouts in southeast Michigan will merge into one council, so this year will mark the last time the troop will come to Mackinac under the banner of the Michigan Waterways Council.
