September 28, 1992

ELDERSBURG -- Girl Scout Troop 417 recently participated in the "Maryland in Miniature" program, a hands-on land and sea adventure, sponsored by the Lady Maryland Foundation.

The Junior Scouts began with a "llama trek" where the girls groomed, fed and packed their llamas for a trip along a natural spring that feeds Deer Creek.

The girls also learned the importance of the watershed area on Chesapeake Bay.

Later, the Scouts went to Rocks State Park for dinner, fireworks and an overnight camp-out.

The sea part of the adventure was a day at the Inner Harbor and sailing on the Half Shell.

Each girl visited five stations on the ship, including navigation, water quality testing, steering from the wheelhouse, knots and trawl fishing.

Scouts participating in the weekend were:

Carrie Albright, Kelly Barrett, Megan Barrow, Tammy Blaney, Angie Greffen, Brenda Hovanec, Shannon McDonald, Nicki, Nalesnik, Jacque Parkhill, Marla Parkhill, Pam Maldeis, Debbie Peters, Kristen Petruccelli, Megan Reilly, Amy Smith, Kristin Walton, Katie Werner, Beth Wolbert and Kelly Wolbert.

The Troop meets in Eldersburg under the leadership of Donna Pittman, Terry Blaney, Debbie Barrett and Trish Barrow.
