    On March 24th, the Brownies and Juniors of Troop 179 celebrated Women’s History Month by getting a once in a lifetime experience with some female aviators! With support from the Yuma Proving Ground Airfield, the girls got to speak with a Navy 1LT Pilot, built wooden airplanes for flight, and toured the airfield where the girls were able to jump in and out of a plane and helicopter.  What amazing memories that will last a lifetime!
