Girl Scouts make big difference on small island

Washington Island Girl Scout Troop 4398 is proving that size does not matter when it comes to having a significant impact on the community. At just four members, Troop 4398 is one of the smallest troops in the Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes. It is fitting since the members go to school at Washington Island, the smallest school district in the state. However, the troop has been busy at its bi-monthly meetings, including making blankets for the Door County Humane Society, creating holiday decorations for Northern Door nursing homes, and taking courses in first aid and self-defense. Leader DJ Kickbusch says it has been great working with the girls.

Troop 4398 is celebrating the end of Girl Scout Week by wrapping up its cookie sales. In addition to earning their business patch, the money raised goes towards activities on and off the island.
