(FRI) Today is National Costume Swap Day!

(FRI) Halloween Costume Exchange
Do you have Halloween costumes from years past hanging in a closet somewhere? Bring them to the Redmond Library this Friday, October 8, from 4pm to 6pm in Meeeting Room 1 and exchange them for something different! The Redmond Girl Scouts are helping others "green" their Halloween by hosting a Halloween costume exchange. It's simple: Bring any gently used costume, dress-up clothes, or theater costumes for infants to kids up to 13 years-old and you can exchange it for another donated costume. This is a great way to clean out your closet and save some money on costumes this year! Leftover costumes will be donated to a local non-profit. The Girl Scouts will also be accepting non-perishable food donations for Hopelink.

(FRI) Girl Scout Information Meeting
Want to learn more about Girl Scouts? Come to an information meeting to learn how to get involved. The info meetings are designed for girls and their families living in the LWSD Bell, Kirk, Franklin, Lakeview, Rose Hill, Rush, and Twain school neighborhoods regardless of what school they attend. Girls will have a chance to meet with current scouts, learn songs and games. Adults will hear all about the Girl Scout program and volunteer opportunities.
