Wagon train to stop here

February 27, 2012|Susie Hoffman | Around Funkstown

What a beautiful morning. Mild temperatures create great dispositions and I will take every ounce of sunshine that is being offered.

So many fun things happen in the spring, and it’s even better when those fun events are learning experiences.

Recently, the Funkstown town council voted unanimously to allow the National Pike wagon train to make its annual overnight stay at the park in Funkstown. 

The wagon train will arrive Saturday, May 19, and will depart the following morning. Mark your calendars and take a walk around the park to enjoy the living history in our backyard.

Happy birthday, Girl Scouts

The Girl Scouts organization turns 100 years old on March 12.

In celebration of the milestone, Washington County Girl Scouts are inviting all Girl Scouts, former Girl Scouts and parents to attend the 100th birthday celebration on Monday, March 12, at 6:15 p.m. at the J.C. Penney Court at Valley Mall. 

The ceremony will start at 6:30 p.m.

The plan is to create a large friendship circle, light a birthday candle and sing a song. 

Anyone who still has a Girl Scout sash or pins is encouraged to bring them to the celebration.
