Tiverton Brownie Troop Sends Cookies To Soldiers Overseas

Tiverton Brownie Troop 188 is sending 50 boxes of Girl Scout cookies to troops stationed in Afghanistan - including some to a Middletown Marine.


Eighteen of Tiverton's youngest residents received one of the town's highest honors on Monday when the Town Council recognized the young ladies of Brownie Troop 188 for donating their cookie shares to troops stationed in Afghanistan.

Troop co-leaders Sara Gerlach and Jennifer Mello said the girls donated their cookie shares to the 2-215 Brigade Advisor Team, 2nd Marine Division stationed in Hemland Province, Afghanistan. Approximately 50 boxes of Girl Scout cookies will be shipped out to local Marine Ryan Behan, of Middletown. The girls hope Belhan will share a few bites of home with his fellow service men and women stationed beside him overseas.

"The Tiverton Town Council recognizes and congratulates Tiverton Girl Scout Brownie Troop 188 and encourages all Tiverton residents to support the programs and talents of all Girl Scouts," said Councilor William P. Gerlach, reading the proclamation commending the efforts of the Brownies.

Erin is correct, you can register on-line at the GSRI website. All registrations then funnel down to our Membership Coordinator who places girls in troops. Individual troops are not responsible for adding girls into troops. Also, we have 19 girls in the troop, which is the same amount we had at the start of the troop year in September. No girls have been added and our troop is closed out as it has been since September.

Erin - just a correction. I co-lead the troop with Jenn Mello. Would you mind correcting that? Thanks.
