Scouts celebrate 100th year
Cottonwood Girl Scouts attended a 100th birthday party in Lewiston on Saturday, March 10th. The event included face painting, lots of games, a fashion show with Girl Scout uniforms from the past, and a silent film called the Golden Eaglet. A guest speaker named Marguerite talked about what Girl Scouting was like over 70 years ago when she was young. She told the girls about meeting Lady Baden-Powell who, along with her husband, started the Girl and Boy Scout programs. The day ended with over 100 girls participating in a candle ceremony before enjoying the cake and cupcakes.
