Robert Gatlin aad Mrs. Mllo P oat el Sometime in the year 1941 a group of girls - including Phyllis B*ker (Mrs. Luke McNeill), Lydia McKeithan (Mrs. Bill Stokes). Ann Graham (Mrs. WiUiam Poole) and Marie Cameron (Mrs. Marie Brown) - approached Mrs. V.R. White the wife of the Hoke High School Principal, to ask for help in organizing a Girl Scout Troop. Mr. and Mrs. White agreed to their request and Girl Scouting in Hoke County was a reality. The Movement was kept alive ? 944-46, an Army wife helped with the troop. Ann Gore Hostetler remembers that they kiutted scarves and mittens for soldiers in World War II. The history of the years from then until 1951 is scant. However there were Girl Scouts. Mrs. Colon Scarborough worked with them as her daughter, Lillian, was then Scout age. In the fall of 1951, some in terested mothers met and discussed reviving Scouts and from then un til now, Hoke County had a place m the Girl Scout Family, even tho* operating on a "shoe-string" There was no sponsor nor finan cial aid until the Woman's Club of Raeford became the sponsors and gave $25 a year to be divided among three troops - eventually four troops because the Brownie troop had to be divided. The girls paid dues - 59 weekly - and the leaders managed. Surely there was a hole hi many leaders pocket books!!! During this time, troops took part in many acitivities - selling Girl Scout Cookies, having Mother-Daughter banquets with the girls doing all the work and planning themselves and guided by their leaders, marched in parades with the newly purchased flags - troops, U.S., and G.S.A. - for each troop purchased with cookie money. Day Camp - only a day at a time - but accomplishing much: such as teaching girls swimming and campcraft. Sewing, cooking, and helping others was a big part of the weekly meetings. "Check Po s . bags with school, First Aid and sewing supplies, were made children and sent to Korea. Care" help was sent to a child in Greece. A "Thank You" letter - written in Greek - and a picture of the boy recipient was received. Our American Greek friend who ran the Elk Restaurant translated the letter. We were humbled by the Greek boy's thanks and flowery words of praise for our generosity and love for him and his love for the United States Girls Scout participated in Day Camp at Pine Bluff - 2 whole weeks - through the courtesy of the Carolina Council which included Moore, Lee. and maybe Chatham Counties - we had a successful and meaningful experience. About 20 girls were able to attend. Transpor tation was furnished by the leaders and expenses were paid by troop funds. Camp crafts, camp cook ing menu planning, "chiggcr righting", swimming, working for badges, and group participation were among the many activities that made a great impression on the lives of the Girl Scouts - Brownies, Intermediates, and Juniors. In trying to secure professional help, we learned that Hoke County was scheduled to be in the Carolina Council ? with headquarters in Sanford. Our part, money wise, was more than Hoke could pay, so again we were relegated to the Lone Troop Plan of Girl Scouting. Leaders from Hoke, however, were invited to share in training and workshops of the Cape Fear Council in Fayetteville. About this time, mid to late fif ties, a United Fund was founded in Hoke County and Girls Scouts were included, but we were still unable to join the Carolina Coun cil. Also at this time, a new organization of Girl Scouting was being talked on the National level. North Carolina was to be divid ed into four parts - north to south - and Hoke County was included in the 19 (Now 20) counties of the Pines of Carolina Girl Scout Council. Lone Troops were being phased out and Girl Scouting would die completely if we could not join this council. By this time, the Woman's Club had given up the sponsorship because LEADERS were so hard to get. It was impossible, or so it seemed to the Woman's Club, to continue. During this time, Girl Scouting lagged. Not knowing that Girl Scouts would have a big revival, the former leaders and sponsors - wanting to use the cookie money for a worthwhile project - bought and donated to the Hoke County Library, a movie projector and screen. This is available under Library personnel supervision for general use. It has been used by many people and hopefully, will continue to be of service. This was in Honor of the early days of Girl Scouting in Hoke County and the Memory of the Lone Troop Era. The balance in the account was given to Neighborhood #32 to be used for their many needs for equipment. Happy Day!!!- The Pines of Carolina Girl Scout Council is now operating and since about 1963, Hoke County has been included in this council. It is funded by the United Fund and, officially, is Neighborhood #32. The first Association Chairman was Mrs. Robert Gatlin and the second, Mrs. Milo Postel. Neighborhood #32 has ac complished much. Craft work shops in the summer with Day Camp activities. There were regular Day Camps for several summers, camporees at Ft. Bragg, Council sponsored Cadette Events, a participant in two National Girl Scout Events. A two-week swim ming camp for boys and girls was held at Ft. Bragg - with swimming instructions, crafts, and games. Volunteers willing took part and Army personnel were provided also. The Hoke County Schools allowed the use of their Activity Buses. Girl Scouting kept growing. At this time there were 16 troops - and these were very busy. Senior Scouting grew during this time. In 6 years: there were 23 Program Aides, 18 Library Aides, 10 Hospital Aides, 5 Aquatic Safety Aides and 1 Public Relations Aide. Enviro-Chem Co. EXTERMINATORS Household Pest Control 120 W.
