Girl Scout Troop #758 is composed of Cadette and Senior level Girl Scouts. Most of the girls started in the troop in 2001 as Daisy Girl Scouts. We have 1 Cadette and 7 Senior Girl Scouts in our troop. We have members in our troop from 5 different schools. We meet on a monthly basis and more frequently when working on big projects. We enjoy camping and doing community service projects. Over the years we have supported many organizations such as Metropolitan Ministries, The Smile Train, Shriners Children's Hospital, various Cancer Organizations, Meals on Wheels, and the U.S. Troops. We have sponsored and maintained a butterfly and herb garden at Woodmont Park in Temple Terrace and most recently have donated a piece of playground equipment in honor of Meghan Garrett to Clouds of Hope for the All Accessible Playgrounds that are being built in Temple Terrace.
The troop earned their Bronze Award in 2009 for sponsoring and putting on the 1st Annual "Tri It Get Fit" Triathlon which was the first youth triathlon in Hillsborough County. The Cadettes earned their Silver Award and the Juniors earned their Bronze Award in 2011 by sponsoring and putting on the 3rd Annual "Tri It Get Fit" Triathlon. The troop incorporated a physically challenged and special olympic athlete segment of the race to expand the scope of the event. In addition, the troop encouraged more Girl Scouts to participate. The 3rd Annual "Tri It Get Fit" Triathlon had over 130 participants, 40 of which were Girl Scouts and nine were challenged athletes. We hope to continue as a troop together and earn our Gold Awards.
