Charlotte Girl Scout Troop 30066 is continuing to dedicate their time to helping spread a little holiday cheer this month. Last week, at their Monday meeting, the girls worked together to make almost 100 holiday ornaments, which have been delivered to the residents of Green Mountain Nursing Home in Colchester and Porter Nursing Home in Middlebury. The ornaments consisted of popsicle-stick Santas and snowmen, clothespin and clay-pot Christmas trees and beaded holiday wreaths.
On Saturday, Dec. 18, we invite you to watch for us as we travel through parts of East Charlotte (weather permitting), singing holiday songs on our festive and fun “blinged-out” hay wagon. Our planned route is as follows: We will leave 584 One Mile Road at approximately 4 p.m., traveling from there to Mt. Philo Road, where we will turn left and travel south to Spear Street. We will follow Spear Street until we turn left onto Guinea Road, staying on Guinea until we take a right onto Bingham Brook Road. At the end of Bingham Brook, we will take a left back onto Spear Street and head north, stopping at Spear’s Corner Store briefly before turning left onto Hinesburg-Charlotte Road, then traveling west until turning left back onto Guinea Road, and then turning back onto One Mile Road, returning to our starting point.
Come on out and greet us and we will sing you a song! If you are traveling these roads that afternoon, please be mindful that we will be out there on a wagon being pulled by a tractor that will require our traveling at a slower rate of speed than a car or truck. Our goal is to spread holiday cheer and keep everyone safe at the same time. Thank you in advance for your consideration. Happy holidays, everyone!
