GIRL SCOUT SUNDAY

March 8 is Girl Scout Sunday, the annual celebration of the founding of Girl Scouting in America in 1912. It is also a time for Girl Scouts to be recognized in their places of worship and for them to focus on the meaning of “To Serve God” in the Girl Scout Promise.

Although Green Hill does not currently host a Girl Scout Troop, we support Girl Scouting in America by being the location for the monthly Girl Scout leaders meeting for all area troops. We are also very proud of our three Girl Scouts, Kendall, Makayla, and Emma.

ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARADE

The annual World’s Smallest St. Patrick’s Day Parade will be held on Saturday, March 14, at Noon. Did you know that Lucy K., Green Hill’s previous church secretary, is the one who got the whole thing going back in 1993? After relocating to Alabama from New York, she was distressed to see that the town didn’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. So, she went to Kathy S., the head of the Chamber of Commerce. The two of them decided since Enterprise is a small town it should host the World’s Smallest Parade. Kathy, who is of Irish decent, was the very first marcher. Lucy, who had to be out of town that day, was the Grand Marshal in absentia. She and Jim sent a telegram from their hotel in Chicago wishing everyone in Enterprise a very happy St. Patrick’s Day.
