Scouts have their first troop of girls

The Ohwahnasee District, which includes Adair, Audubon, Carroll, Cass, Crawford, Harrison and Shelby counties of the Mid-America Council of the Boy Scouts of America, is thrilled to announce the district’s first girls troop. Many months were spent finding a chartered organization to sponsor them, planning how to get started, preparing new leaders to start their roles, recruiting new girls to join, and implementing the program led by the young BSA Scouts. Troop 90G was formed in February 2022 and is chartered from American Legion Post 150 in Harlan.
These young women worked hard to get enough members to start a troupe. They started with just four initial members, but have grown to seven now that two girls recently joined last week and one dropped from Glidden Pack 114 on May 22. For now, the 90G troop is considered a district-wide troop since the girls and leaders are spread throughout the district, including the towns of Harlan, Missouri Valley, Logan, Shelby, and Glidden. As more girls join or leave the pack in their area, the goal is to establish new troops in their hometown. But so far, they have done this job very well.
