GirlScouts overnight in Denver

Troop 2143 and their moms took a trip to the Downtown Denver Aquarium for their Scout Overnight. These girls sold more than 6,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies for this trip. Our top seller, Rhaya Carmichael, sold more than 2,500 boxes. They loved the experience of sleeping with the sharks swimming around them and feeding the sting rays. Also, the girls weekend included a trip to the Wildlife Experience, Fuzzy Baby Animals at the I-Max, and making dolls at the Miniature Doll Museum in Denver. They would like to thank the community for supporting Girl Scout cookie sales.

Making the pitch

Matthew Lawrence sent in this (slightly edited) email to the PI:

“I proposed to Kayla Richard, my girlfriend of three and a half years, on May 15 during our coed softball game. I waited until she was at bat in the second inning, and I had the other team, the league and the ump all in on it. So when she was up at bat I was on deck and the ump called time. Once she stepped out of the box and turned around she saw me on one knee, and I then proposed. She was shocked to say the least. With all our friends there and great weather, I couldn’t have asked for a better way to do it. She said yes, by the way.”

Yeah, we figured that much.
