During the holiday season, Girl Scout Troop No. 243 of Mantua went to a performance of "A Christmas Carol" at Playhouse Square in Cleveland. Attending are, from left, Bethany Mason, Alyssa Perez, Carrie Lovejoy, Carrie Kotkowski, Gina Irwin, Alexis Wilson and Madison McBride. After the show, they were able to view how the special effects were created. The troop reminds everyone that it's Girl Scout cookie time. To place an order, call a local troop.
