Junior Troop 722
We are so proud of you and all of your achievements and

All our love,
Mom and Dad
are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the
organization they love this year.
Wilson County is no stranger to Girl
Scouting. Currently in the county there
are 700 active participants in various
troops throughout Lebanon, Mt. Juliet and
Regional Executive Cathey Sweeney
said there are 200 girls in troops in
Lebanon and 500 active girls in Mt. Juliet.
Watertown is home to 59 scouts as well.
“I want people to know that the
Girl Scouts have an offce right here in
Wilson County. We aren’t just a Nashville
organization. There is a Girl Scout offce at
the Chamber of Commerce on the public
square in Lebanon,” said Sweeney.
Sweeney also noted there are many
adults who volunteer with scouting in
various ways. “We have 83 adult volunteers
in Lebanon, 27 in Watertown and 250 in Mt
Juliet,” she said.
Although Girl Scouts had applied in
the past for funds through United Way,
Sweeney said the organization is no longer
flling out on application for those funds.
“We don’t apply anymore, but we do
get designations, if someone is donating to
United Way and they designate they want
their donation to go to Girl Scouts, then we
will get those.”
The largest troops in Wilson County
come from Mt. Juliet and Lebanon. Teresa
Wilson is the leader of a troop in Mt. Juliet
that currently has 44 members and Tina
Wilke’s Lebanon troop has 21 active girls.
“To start a troop, you only need fve
girls,” said Sweeney. “So if you have a
daughter and she has four friends, they
could start their own troop.”
Here in Wilson County, there are a
couple of events taking place to honor the
CedarStone Bank is hosting an adults
only event Thursday, April 19 that is
aimed at community members, donors
and volunteers who may be interested in
learning more about scouting.
On April 28, the James E. Ward Ag
Center will play host to the girls with several
activities scheduled throughout the day.
The fun includes old fashioned crafts such
as making corn husk dolls and a sewing
class where girls can learn the basics of
quilting and crocheting.
“Someone will be on hand to teach
the girls sign language out of respect for
our founder, Juliette Gordon Low, who was
deaf,” Sweeney said.
Anyone who would like more
information on scouting can contact the
offce on the square at 453-2473.
