Great Day for Girl Scouts!
More than 50 local Girl Scouts attended the recent Montgomery County Girl Scout World Thinking Day. The annual event took place at First United Methodist Church in Crawfordsville. The focus of the event was for Girl Scouts and Girl Guides all around the world to think of each other and give thanks and appreciation to their “sister” Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. The day began with songs and ceremonies, followed by an international bazaar of booths. Troops took part in booths representing Japan, Hong Kong, Greece, Madagascar, India and Switzerland. By visiting the booths, girls learned about different countries while sampling food, games and crafts. Founded in 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low, Girl Scouts' membership has grown from 18 members in Savannah, Ga., to 3.7 million members throughout the United States. More than 44,000 girls in 45 counties participate through the Girl Scouts of Central Indiana Council.

Question of the Week:

For quite a while there has been a debate about the direction of Montgomery County. Should we be trying to grow dramatically, similar to perhaps Boone County? Should we just stay the way we are, perhaps a bit like Fountain County? Should we try to become more touristy, say like Parke County? Actually, Montgomery County is one of the few counties in Indiana that touches seven different counties. We want to know of those seven, which one do you think Montgomery County most closely identifies with?
