    • G S K H August and September 2010 NEW YORK, NEW YORK! By Randi Cloe, age 14 On June 8, 2010 nine girls and two adults from Girl Scouts left for the Big Apple—New York! We went to Rockefeller Center, NBC, Macy’s and we rode the subway, which was a first for many. Thursday, we got to see The Cathedral Church of St. John the Devine; St. Paul’s, the Church by Ground Zero; Ground Zero; the World Financial Towers; and we walked near the waterfront to Battery Park, Times Square and M&M store. We ended the day with We enjoyed a game of chess while waiting for the Ellis Island ferry. a night tour of New York and Brooklyn. Friday, we went to The Today Show (and saw Rascal Flatts), Top of the Rock and then we went to China Town. Saturday we went to the Sky Ride at the Empire State Building, which was awesome, and Grand Central Station. We rode the Staten Island Ferry to see the sights from the water. Then we went shopping at Strawberry. Sunday we slept in. When we got up we had breakfast (which we prepared ourselves every morning) and then went to Coney Island. When we got there we walked the Boardwalk, rode The Wonder Wheel which is a big ferris wheel that is 90 years old, played on the beach and collected sea shells. Monday was spent at Ellis Island and Liberty Island where we went into the Statue of Liberty. That night we went to Hard Rock Cafe. Tuesday we went to GSUSA, NBC and shopped in Times Square. We wrapped up the day by seeing an off-Broadway show called “Fantastick’s.” Wednesday we went to MadameTussaud’s, a wax museum. Then we were off to Radio City Music Hall and Central Park was on our awesome tour! The whole trip was great and I would love to go back again with Girl Scouts!

    • Summer Rocks! Camping was in full swing throughout the Emporia and Parsons Regions this summer! Emporia and Parsons Regions Improvements at the Osage City Scout House The Osage City Scouts are working together to improve and make a more inviting Scout House in Osage City. Cadette Troop 30144 painted the main meeting room to kick off the improvements. This might be a tiresome project for some people, but these girls stepped up to the plate. Girl Scout troops in the area will paint the other rooms. Osage City Boy Scouts will be renovating the floors. To add warmth the Cadette troop plans to make colorful curtains for the main meeting room. These improvements are positive steps in the right direction for the Scout House. Pictured – Back row: Loretta, Kailyn, Courtney, Courtney, Pam, Ruth Front Row: Cassidy, Riley, Annah, Chelsea Not Pictured: Pam, Debbie, David, Brooklynn, Alexis, and Kara Who Done it? Mystery…. Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors were invited to “Who Done It: The American Icon, Simon Fowell Mystery,” at the Emporia Amend Girl Scout Center. Before the “murder” occurred the girls enjoyed a dinner then the excitement started. Each Girl Scout was as- signed a character as a contestant, cast or crew member. The plot was that the participants, cast and crew shuffled into the studio then the lights suddenly went black and they heard a chilling scream. It was up to the girls to figure out what happened that fateful night. Abby, a Girl Scout from the Emporia Region, was a contestant in the mystery. Her favorite part was playing her character, an undercover reporter. “It was a blast trying to figure out who the killer was by comparing notes with the other girls,” said Abby, “with all the clues that we were comparing, it felt like we were playing Clue, but in real life.” There were different prizes given to the girls who asked the best questions. Everyone guessed who the murderer was except the person, “Who Done It.” The Girl Scouts of Carbondale, Independence, Marion, Waverly, and Burlington had a great time enjoying the outdoors at their day camps this summer! They participated in many activities including campfire cooking, hiking, archery, crafts, fishing, Emporia Office: 1200 Burlingame Road, Emporia, Kan. 66801 | (620) 342-4532 | (800) 342-4532 | Fax: (620) 342-8066 canoeing, and much, much more!
