MLK Day of Service

Today we celebrated this day of honoring Martin Luther King, Jr.'s work as we usually do, by taking the Girl Scout troop to the local MLK Day March.  It was great.  Sometimes only a few of our girls are able to attend this event due to parents' work schedules, etc., but seven of our nine girls came today and the weather was beautiful and it was just wonderful to see them march.  Our troop had spent the last couple of weeks collecting hygiene items for the homeless and had sent out a call to other local troops to bring any donations they collected to the March, which some did. After the March, the girls sorted all the donations into hygiene bags for people who are homeless and we dropped them off at the Mother Teresa Shelter after we left, so we definitely got in our Day of Service in honor of Dr. King.
