Seeing History in Savannah
The end of the school year and start of summer often means it is time for many Girl Scout troops to pack their bags and head off on some very exciting trips, and Troop 32503 was no exception. They recently took a three day visit to Savannah, Georgia and it was action packed.
On their first day, they visited the First African Baptist Church to learn about Savannah's role in slavery and the role the church played in the Underground Railroad, along with a carriage ride around Savannah learning about many of the ghosts and spooky stories that Savannah is known for. The next day, the visited the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace to tour and see some of the historical artifacts that belonged to Juliette, as well as touring the First Girl Scout Headquarters where they were able to see historical Girl Scout uniforms and memorabilia, as well as touring two more historic churches. Finally, on their last day, they were able to visit nearby Tybee Island. They climbed the island's lighthouse and learned about its history and visited the Marine Science Center. It was a wonderful and memorable trip!
