Weekend Run-Down

Good Morning Everyone - Here's is today's Run-Down of stories popping up from the weekend:
  • In Pennsylvania, The Tribune-Democrat reports that after extensive research and development, Girl Scouts debuted a new brand campaign to re-acquaint the country with the organization and communicate the power that girls have to change the world through Girl Scouting.
  • The Texarcana-Gazette states that The Girl Scouts–Diamonds of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas council is looking for former Girl Scouts to participate in an oral history project to celebrate the organization’s centennial birthday in 2012.
  • In Massachusetts, The Canton Journal reports that to kick off “Girl Scouts Rock!” Week, Canton Girl Scouts will host a Zumba session Sunday, Oct 17, from 2-4 p.m., at the St John's Parish Center. It will include Zumba dancing, face painting and a craft. Zumba is a dance fitness program created by dancer and choreographer Alberto "Beto" Perez in Colombia during the 1990s. The program combines Latin and international music with dance in an effort to make exercise fun.
  • Helium has a story about the many things Brownies Girl Scouts will learn while completing requirements for badges called Try-Its. One of these badges is called the "Watching Wildlife" Try-It and will focus on wildlife that the girls may find nearby in their neighborhood.
  • The State in South Carolina reports that on Saturday, more than 6,700 people marched through the streets of Columbia’s downtown to raise nearly $500,000 for breast cancer research and support - including three Girl Scout troops, to earn their “In the Pink” patches.
