SOUTHEAST Girl Scouts begin busy year, host trips, world friendship

Donna Alexander Published:

As a district, the Southeast Girl Scouts have had a busy year. They sold more than $16,600 in cookies. The percentages of profits from these sales enables the troops to buy supplies, go camping and on field trips and meet expenses incurred during the year. In February, the troops and their leaders took a much needed trip to the tropics, when Cindy Sebastians Troop No. 424 sponsored a District Hawaiian Luau. The girls made grass skirts, received leis, danced the limbo and participated in a hula hoop contest. Afterward, they all dined on tropical fruits and pineapple pizza. In March, Senior Troop No. 672 hosted an International World Friendship program. The theme, A Day in the Life of , was performed in many different ways by the numerous troops. Families enjoyed everything from greetings in the language of Hawaii, to Greek fables, dancing, and Sumo wrestling. Afterward, passports were stamped and authentic foods from each country were sampled. Admission to the program was a non-perishable food item. The food collected has been donated to the Center of Hope in Ravenna. Anyone interested in the Girl Scout program at Southeast, may contact Debbie Lawrence, district coordinator, at (330) 358-2438 or e-mail segsdist@neosplice.com.
