Hi from the Tejas Council in Texas. We are Brownie Troop 2331, second grade Brownies, consisting of eight girls. Their names are Nicki, Nichol, Priscilla, Brooke, Renee, Lauren, Katie, and Michelle. I am Sandy, the leader and Tana is our co-leader. We are getting ready for our first parade. Our town has an annual Christmas Parade and we are going to be marching our hearts out. The theme is "A Cartoon Christmas". Six of the girls are returning members from last year and we have two new girls this year. We have been working on try-its and decorating boxes for our community outreach for Thanksgiving. We also made napkin rings and placemats to go in the boxes. We had alot of fun doing this. We are getting ready to train for our cookie sale. I am the cookie co-ordinator for our Council so we get really excited about our cookie sale. We were one of three troops to get the Tejas Challange last year in our Service unit. We had to average 150 boxes per girl and we were very excited that our first cookie sale went so well. That's about all for now. Sandy- leader 2331
