Published 12:00 am Tuesday, April 3, 2007

For 95 years, Girl Scouting has been dedicated to building girls of courage, confidence and character.

During Girl Scout Week, celebrated this past week, Girl Scouts across the country took part in community service activities and gift-giving.

The Girl Scout Council of Colonial Coast was among those councils working to “make the world a better place.” A special “Girl Scouts Make the World a Better Place” patch and pin are available for purchase from the council shop to all community-service participants.

Celebration events will take place throughout March. A special anniversary exhibit will run at the Francis Land House in Virginia Beach through April 15.
