An update on the Wilfires up north:

Over the recent past, wildfires have been both a man-made and  natural event that we must deal with.  As always, your campers safety is our number one concern. Please be assured that we are in regular communication with the National Forest and respective County Emergency Management divisions. Unfortunately, this year’s fire season has started early, but as always, we will continue to monitor all fires throughout the state. As of June 6th, the Gladiator Fire is 85% contained and still does not pose an immediate threat. The Sunflower fire is out.  Unless the situations drastically change, there will be no further updates on these two fires.

Ten Arizona Girl Scouts win tickets to Disney on Ice for their “100 Acts of Kindness!”

Posted: May 15, 2012

These ten Girl Scouts won a family pack of tickets to Disney on Ice after competing in the “100 Acts of Kindness” project! Girls had to keep track and submit a record of their 100 acts of kindness—and the first 10 received free tickets. The contest was in recognition of the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting in the United States

Arizona Councilwoman Thelda Williams prepared a certificate of recognition for the Girl Scouts who participated in the 100 Acts of Kindness project, and honored them just before the show began. The certificate is hanging at our council administrative offices.

Great work, Girl Scouts!  Click the link below the image for a list of the girls' names and acts of kindness.
