Girl Scouts gather at Depot

Mothers and daughters dressed up and honored each other Saturday night at Thomson's Girl Scouts Mother-Daughter Banquet. The annual event, hosted by Troop 7181, drew more than 60 people from five troops to the Depot.

Kathleen Drayton, 4-H counselor, and her daughter, Renee Crockett, a school teacher, were the featured speakers before the dinner. Ms. Drayton spoke to the mothers on raising their children, focusing on Proverbs 22:6, "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not turn from it."

"I have one daughter, and I'm proud of her. I've raised her right as well," Ms. Drayton said after their speeches.

Ms. Crockett spoke to the daughters on the importance of respecting their parents. To support her speech, Ms. Crockett used Ephesians 6:1-4, "Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother, for this is the first commandment with a promise - that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth..."

"It's not just important for us to respect our parents, but we need to respect others as well," she said.
