Front Porch: Girl Scout troop’s garage sale Friday and Saturday in Marysville

Help Scouts with goal

Remember the March story of Marysville Girl Scout Troop 42047, which had many items stolen that it had been collecting for a garage sale to help pay for a 2014 trip to Europe?

The garage sale is still on, thanks to donations from across the Puget Sound.

It’s set for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday at 8115 63rd Drive NE in Marysville.

The thieves were selective, taking mainly high-end items, such as an Xbox 360, electronic games, tools, brand-name clothing, kitchen appliances and radios. They also broke into a box of Girl Scout cookies.

Members of the seven-member troop also recently held a car wash to raise extra money.

“We washed 185 cars,” troop member Chloe Starkenburg, 14, reported.
