Red Bud recognizes Girl Scout Week

GIRL SCOUT WEEK PROCLAMATION–At Monday night’s council meeting, Red Bud Mayor Tim Lowry signed a proclamation declaring the week of March 10 as Girl Scout Week. Several Girl Scouts from troops in Service Unit 57 – Randolph County North were in attendance at the meeting. Pictured are the girls with Lowry and members of the council following the meeting.

More than a dozen local Girl Scouts were in attendance at Monday night’s Red Bud City Council meeting, as Mayor Tim Lowry signed a proclamation for Girl Scout Week.

Girls Scouts from troops in Service Unit 57 – Randolph County North arrived about half an hour prior to the evening’s council meeting so that they could meet with Lowry and ask questions about the city, his job as mayor, the council and how municipal governments work.

National Girl Scout Week is March 10-16 and recognizes what Girl Scouts do in the community, as well as their 107 years of history.

The proclamation noted that more than 50 million women are Girl Scout alums and that 2.6 million girls and adults are current members.

During the evening’s council meeting, Lowry read the proclamation and then thanked the Girl Scouts for all that they do to better our community.

The only other matter that the council had discussion on was the supporting documentation for the revolving loan fund closeout grant application.
