Brownie troop delivered holiday cheer

In December 2013, eight Brownies from Falmouth Troop #2090 decided to make holidays cards and donate flowers and plants to the girls at the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital in order to brighten their day. The girls spent a Saturday morning making holiday cards with stickers, markers, pine cones, ribbons, pom-poms and a lot of glitter. Later that day, Martha Murdick, a nurse at Maine Medical Center, and her daughter, a Brownie, delivered the cards and plants.
