Troop Together for 13 Years

I know this is an out-of-Framingham Troop, but thought it was worth sharing ...

MARLBOROUGH — This year marks the end of an era in Marlborough Girl Scouts.
The 10 members of Marlborough Senior Girl Scout Troop #72834, many of whom joined early in elementary school, are graduating. A program at Marlborough High School on May 27 honored the troop and three Gold Award recipients.
The Senior Troop members shared their experiences over the last 13 years. Highlights included community service, camping and a trip in ninth grade to England in which they stayed with the British equivalent of Girl Scouts, said Laura Wilner, one of the troop's leaders.
"So many said this has been such a big part of their life," Wilner said. "This troop has just been so special. They're a very high-achieving group."
Ruth Bramson, CEO of the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts Council, spoke at the ceremony. The Marlborough Gold Award recipients were Katherine Karwoski and Julianne Wilner, of Troop #72834, and Chelsea Wagner, of Troop #72849. The award, akin to an Eagle Scout accomplishment in Boy Scouts, is the highest honor a Girl Scout can receive - only 5.4 percent of Girl Scouts achieve it.
