"It's quite a thrill to be here and to be riding a horse," McNair said. "The Girl Scouts have always been a big part of our lives. I was a scout leader for my oldest daughter and had 22 Brownies at my house on Tuesday afternoons.

The Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council is the state's largest, serving more than 58,000 girls and 14,000 adults in 21 east and southeast Texas counties.
