Weekend Run-Down

Let's take a look at some Girl Scout stories appearing in local media from the weekend:

  • In New Mexico, The Las Cruces Sun highlights Girl Scout Nanabelle Godlewski as the Student of the Week.
  • The Suburban Journal, IL, recognises two Girl Scouts in different communities - both as Top Cookie Sellers.
  • Wisconsin's Leader-Telegram reports that the Happy Tails Dog Park received a makeover this fall after Girl Scout Theresa Hunt decided to upgrade the new park by adding picnic tables and benches. Hunt, 17, a Chippewa Falls High School junior, was looking for a good project to complete for her Girl Scout Gold Award when she heard about the new park in the city.
  • The Day, CT, has a call for volunteers - It states, "Please consider volunteering your time to make a difference in a girl's life. Adult volunteers can help a girl become the type of person she wants to be."
  • Also in Connecticut, The Daily Weston reports that birds wintering in Weston flocked to their new homes this week, care of Girl Scout Troop 50029. The troop spent more than a year researching, planning and building 25 birdhouses, which are now at Bisceglie Park.
  • Ohio's Zanesville Times-Recorder reports that Girl Scouts were on hand at the bustling Santa's Workshop at the Zanesville Civic League Community Center on Saturday for a day of family fun and crafts.
