Michelle Bartoszek
My name is Michelle Bartoszek and I am trying to set up a swap with girls from over 50 states. I have a troop of Brownies in Wisconsin. Would you be interested in doing this with our troop? We only have three girls in our troop. We are trying to do a state themed swap. You make a swap & send it to us representing something about your state & we send you a swap representing something about our state. Please let me know with a PM if you have a troop that would be willing to do this. Thanks.

Hello fellow Girl Scouts. I am a troop leader from NC and we are trying to complete the 50 state swap. We only have 21 states left and we need help from a Hawaii troop. We only have 10 girls in our troop. If there is any troop interested in swapping with us please have them email me at gsbrownies223@yahoo.com. I really want to try to complete this for my girls and help them reach their goal. Thanks so much. Heather Troop 223
