    I have 9 yr old twins that were in Girl Scouts the last 4 yrs. They would be interested in volunteering.

    These are our girls in the picture and we’ve been doing this for many years. The girls love it and received a free t-shirt each year. Then the rest of the day they could roam the fair!

    I highly recommend this as a great troop activity!
