Hello!  I have Brownie Troop 363 (8 girls) near Evansville, Indiana, and we are looking for a troop to be pen pals with.  Basically, we want our girls to be familiar with what other troops are doing in different areas, and we would like this to be done by writing letters to each other.  If there is a troop in your area that has the same number of girls that would be interested in doing this, please let me know.   I look forward to hearing from you.  Lindsey Daywalt, 812-430-0665, Brownie Troop 363, Chandler, IN
