Girl Scouts

From left, city councilmember Roy Lee is the first customer of the day, and Girls Scouts Rosita Power, Reagan Mack, Amelia Power, Sara Flora Fakinos, Anna Petersen and Evelyn Calkins appreciate his support.

Carpinteria Girl Scout Troop 50006 recently held a rummage and bake sale on the Carpinteria Middle School front lawn to earn money for a service trip the troop will make to Costa Rica in 2021. The girls plan to participate in re-forestation efforts with tree planting work. Community members came out in support of their local Girl Scouts to the tune of $1100, and troop leader Kristina Calkins said, “We started out in the early morning by giving each girl a stack of money to hold for change and telling them that they are the businesswoman in charge…” Calkins added, “The girls were empowered all day as the Carpinteria community came out in record numbers to support the young ladies.” Troop 50006 will continue to raise funds over the next couple of years, and has plans for another rummage sale at the beginning of next summer.
