Girl Scout Troop 40332 will be at the Spring Clean Up event for the Town of Steilacoom to collect children’s books. The Troop is partnering with the African Library Project to collect 1,000 children’s books and $500 that will be used to build a library at Chawe Primary School in Malawi. The Scouts will be accepting books for children ages preschool thru 8th grade and donations to help cover the cost of shipping the books. This is a great opportunity to clear out those book shelves and support a good cause at the same time! If you have any questions you may email the troop at firstname.lastname@example.org.

When I was a young girl, my favorite time of school was Friday afternoons when Miss Adams read us stories: Tales told Under the Green (or Red, or Blue, or Yellow) Umbrella. On a recent walk around my Lake City Neighborhood I found a Pink Umbrella–what stories I could tell.
