In Ottawa area there are 382 girls, and 115 adult volunteers in 21 troops carrying on special activities on this occasion. Scouting in Franklin County was started in (he late 1020's. Sarliest records show that five roops were in operation by 1935. h February of that year, the irst Council Charter was signed and the lone troops banded together to form the Ottawa Council of Girl Scouts. Mr. A. C. Carpenter was the commissioner with Mr. H. S. licks as his deputy, Mrs. E. V. sh, secretary; and Mrs. J. 1 e n r y Bennett, treasurer. Through the council the Scouts were able to plan and carry out a wider and more varied program. In 1936 the first cookie sale was held. The Scouts solicited orders, then baked the cookies in stoves set up in the basement of Memorial Auditorium. Each troop took a day of the week to bake and deliver its cookies. Service projects and international friendship are a part of the Scout program. In keeping with these goals, the profits of the cookie sale in 1953 were donated to Korean orphans. The first Brownie troops were registered in 1941. That year there were five Brownie troops, four Intermediate and three Senior troops in the Ottawa Council. Always an important part of the Scout program are camping and nature. Early camping grounds used by the girls were Jacob's park on the Marais des Complete Line at SEWING CIHC1-C Albright's Marks 56th Anniversary Merry-Go-Round Club observed its 56th anniversary yesterday with a dinner and cookie exchange at Mrs. Leo Kirkwood's home.
