Girl Scouts all over central Indiana recently had the opportunity to create ornaments with a blue and gold theme for this year’s State House Tree.
But in addition to making ornaments, Promise Road Elementary’s Girl Scout Junior Troop #272 was invited with a few other area troops Nov. 30 to trim the tree.
The troop’s ornaments were “snowgirls” made from the girls’ handprints on blue bulbs, complete with one of the snowgirls on each ornament wearing the traditional green vest and holding up three fingers, representing the Girl Scout Promise.
After decorating the tree, troop members enjoyed cookies and cider and were able to talk with Lt. Gov. Ellspermann and tour her office and the State House.
