Girl Scout Troop 1193

Girl Scout Troop 1193 from Downey sold enough cookies to travel to Palm Beach, Fla., this summer. The girls decided on the trip three years ago and calculated how many boxes of cookies each girl would have to sell to make the trip possible. They also received a donation from State Farm Insurance. While in Palm Beach, the girls swam with the dolphins, swam with dolphins, toured the city and beaches, visited the city's oldest lighthouse, snorkled and learned how to paddle board. "They enjoyed every minute of their trip and it was well deserved," said troop leaders Mariana and Sonia. "Along with Girl Scouts, these girls have AP classes and they are all in a sport and help out in their community."
