“Brownies were provided with jump ropes from Brown Owl Cathy as end of year gifts for participating in the numerous health ventures, which were partly sponsored by Argus Insurance Company.

“The girls, who range in age from 7 through 11, had embarked upon a year of healthy living, body soul and mind ventures, which enabled them to earn several badges.
