Wilton Brownie Troop 51001 collected more than 35 new toys for the Toys for Tots drive. At the troop’s December meeting, the third graders welcomed U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Anthony Smith, who not only came to pick up the toys, but also took time to meet with the scouts to discuss the similarities between the Girl Scouts and the Marines. In addition to the toys, the scouts gave Smith a thank-you note and some Girl Scout cookies. — Contributed photo
