Girl Scouts of Shawnee Council Inc. announces that the Alan and Leanne Cobb family of Shenandoah Junction, W.Va., has been named the 2006 Family Partnership Family for the annual fundraising campaign to support Girl Scouts.

The family has been involved in Girl Scouts for more than 14 years. Their involvement began when their oldest daughter Jillian joined a Daisy troop led by her mom, Leanne. Jillian, now 18, recently received the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest award in Girl Scouting. Sisters Lindsay and Lottie, 15 and 16 respectively, are also actively involved in the Girl Scouts program.

"The time we spend as a family on activities that benefit our community, like cleaning a graveyard or assembling Christmas stockings for the Salvation Army, are benefits that we might not have experienced on such a regular basis if we hadn't been a part of Girl Scouts," said Leanne Cobb.

Alan Cobb, father and owner of Panelwrights, LLC, supports his girls in a variety of ways, including donating materials from his company, grilling food for their team at the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, manning the beverage table at a host of events, and serving as auctioneer at a fundraiser that helped the troop raise funds for a trip to Europe in 2005.
