Third-grade Girl Scout Brownie Troop 2143 mothers and daughters attended Girl Scout Jamboree this summer at the Jackson Ranch. The girls learned how to put up tents, participated in crafts and went on a nature hike. They got to learn new campfire songs while roasting marshmallows. The Jackson family invited a storyteller for the girls, as well as volunteers who taught fire safety in the outdoors, and about bears and mountain lions. The moms experience the outdoor camping and cooking training needed for them to help their troop with future camping experiences. The troop would like to thank all the volunteers for their time and setting up this event that made great memories for the moms and daughters.

The Glenwood Springs Kiwanis Club inducted Paul Freeman, principal of Glenwood Springs High school, as its newest member on Aug. 28 at its weekly meeting in Veltus Park. Paul joins the club as a representative of the high school, which has been granted corporate membership. Kiwanis International has just instituted corporate membership, which allows an organization to join as an organization, and then appoint a member of the organization to attend meetings regularly, representing that organization in the club. Although we hope it’s not true for the high school, if the first member appointed has to leave for any reason, corporate membership allows an organization to appoint a different member to attend meetings without losing its membership.
