Of note Girl Scouts collect items for troops

Girl Scouts from the Las Trampas Association - about 50 troops - collected items such as popcorn, oatmeal and granola last month to give to the Blue Star Moms, who packed the goods and sent them to U.S. troops in Iraq.

Eighth-grade Cadette Troop 1964 hosted the Blue Star Moms Collection Drive as part of its Silver Award project with a drop-off location near Los Cerros Middle School. A colorful flier for the event was designed by eighth-grader Alanna Leong. The Scouts encouraged donors to write postcards to the soldiers, too.

Helping assemble the donations are (l-r) Sammie Hugo, Mary Kate Rupley, Janine Elya, Kartina Henderson and Jillian Tom.
