  • Travel and Girl Scouting

    By Timalee Nevels Hands down, my favorite experiences with Girl Scouts are times that I’ve been with teen girls exploring the world.  Among my favorite memories are the time that 15 year old Morgan navigated our group across Ireland,  sharing familiar silly songs with Girl Guides, and none of us were the same after touring the former Dachau concentration camp.   There are many, many wonderful learning and growing experiences when a girl is a part of this wonderful movement, but there’s no quicker way to learn 21st century skills that girls need in the modern world than when she travels.  Girls who travel gain confidence and become self-directed.  They increase their flexibility, global awareness and cultural sensitivity.  It’s my pleasure to be working with 30 teens from three counties i…

  • Food Truck Round up Every Thursday Night!

    Many of you were here for National Cookie weekend and had the chance to experience one or more of the trucks that were in attendance.  Even though it was not as busy as we might have wished, the Food Truck community is excited about the possibilities that our location brings.  Having said this, we are going to welcome the community to our new lot and give the Food Trucks a chance to call Broadway and Columbus home on Thursday evenings from 5 to 8pm.  At this time we will have three trucks set up on the dirt lot and stay faithful to Thursday evenings even if the flow is slow at first; the hope is that being a regular spot will slowly increase interest. The truck that is taking the lead is Gigi’s Mexican Peruvian Fusion, he has invited two others to kick it off.
