I tried to post a 100 Anniversary post yesterday but there were authentication issues.

Our local paper had a front page article about the council celebration. I was held at a local church. They had a tea, crafts, and displays of scout memorabilia. There was only one mention of GS age kids in the article. The rest of the info was about adults in attendance and their memories of scouting, etc.

On the sidebar there was also an article about the lawsuit that has been set in motion about the merged Council shutting down local camps. Several camps were already sold, but the group is trying to get the rest of the sales stopped.

The scout shop deal sounds great. I'm sure the girls were thrilled to have a surprise from you :)

Woo Hoo on having the cookies paid off. Does this mean you get reimbursed now? I hope so.

Our account has enough to reimburse me completely, but it would be down to about 10 dollars.

We hosted a Service Unit Birthday Party. We had several troops involved who each set up either a game or a craft. We had Cake and Punch and a candle ceremony at 7:12 PM (19:12 military time). My daughter dressed up as Juliet Low with stuff I got at Goodwill. We invited all the troops from the Service Unit and GS alumnae as well. We had over 90 people there.

That's great that your troop volunteered to do something special for your service unit. :)

Yesterdays paper had another article about GS. This one flashed back to troops in the past. There were some nice pictures from readers during different time periods.
