For over 10 years, the Green River Girl Scout troops donate a basket of baby items to the first baby girl born during Girl Scout Week. This year, that’s March 7-13. The individual Girl Scouts each donated to the basket of goodies.

The Girl Scouts in Green River include Daisy Girl Scouts (kindergarten/first grade), Brownie Girl Scouts (second- and third-grade), Junior Girl Scouts (fourth- and fifth-grade) and Cadette Girl Scouts (sixth- through eighth-grade), Senior Girl Scouts (freshmen and sophomores) and Ambassador Girl Scouts (juniors and seniors). 

Allison is the Zumbrennen’s first child. As for her future as a Girl Scout, Monica Zumbrennen said her niece certainly enjoys being a member of the Girl Scouts, and Allison just might follow in her cousin’s footsteps.
