Girl Scout Cookie Classic Run

Jen Merritt, Diana Behling and Leslie Clements, Girl Scout alumnae from Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, volunteered to judge costumes and spirit at the first annual Girl Scout Cookie Classic Run, held on January 31 at Bells Mill Park.

The race, which included a 5K and 1-mile option, was organized by Girl Scout volunteers from Community 3. Nearly 300 Girl Scouts and friends from the community participated.


Girl Scout Famous Formers!

Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast honored six area women leaders as Girl Scout Famous Formers at an event held October 30, 2014, at the Norfolk Yacht Club. The women are among nearly 50 Girl Scout alumnae who have been named Girl Scout Famous Formers since the tradition began in our Council in 2012. The event helps recognize women who continue to support the Girl Scout mission and serve as role models for today's girls. Laura Rowe, founder of the nonprofit Got Sole? who is also a Girl Scout alumna, was the guest speaker.
