The presence of two members of Girl Scout Troop 38156 in Marlinton at the Mar. 9 baked/fried fish dinner in White Sulphur Springs made possible the sale of Girl Scout cookies. Micayla Bryant and Cassandra Moats represented the troop that evening in selling the cookies.

In addition the council uses the funds raised by the dinners for other youth, community, church, council, and service projects.

“This is the second year that the Girl Scouts have been with us at least one of the dinners to sale the cookies,” Grand Knight Perk Berry of White Sulphur Springs reported.
