Weekend Run-Down

Let's take a look at Girl Scout news items from this past weekend:
  • In Massachusetts, the Brookline Tab reports that LiNEaGe’s chef de cuisine, Tony Moraco, will join Boston’s top chefs in the third annual Cookie Creations event. These chefs will use Girl Scout cookies to create dessert. Those attending will receive tastes of all of the Cookie Creations and award a “crowd favorite,” complimentary appetizers and a silent auction.
  • Delaware Online reports that Girl Scout Troop 42 wanted to be sure that the Delaware State Police know that they are loved and appreciated, so they decided Valentine's Day would be the perfect time to show the officers. The girls baked cookies, made a giant Valentine Card, and then delivered it to the police station with smiles and words of appreciation.
  • KSAL News reports that Kansas State University in Salina will host the Girl Scouts American Girl Pajama Party this week.
  • Connecticut's Norwich Bulletin reports that the Cub Scout Car Derby is a time-honored tradition. But Girl Scout leader Donna Blackman, of Salem, likes to depart from tradition. “I like to do things that aren’t traditionally ‘girly.’ I want them to branch out,” Blackman said. As a result, girls from the Colchester and Salem service area were able to participate January 29 in the region’s first Powder Puff Derby for girls.
  • The Dunn County News, WI, reports that the 17th annual Women of Courage, Confidence and Character awards banquet will be held on Monday, April 4, at Florian Gardens in Eau Claire, hosted by the Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes. This year’s honorees are Linda Bohacek of Eau Claire, Kathy Cernohous of Chippewa Falls, Peg Leinenkugel of Chippewa Falls, Mary Beth Quarberg of Mondovi, and Diane Simon of Elk Mound.
