Former Girl Scouts sought
In conjunction with the 80th birthday of Girl Scouting, Stanford is taking part in a contest sponsored by the Santa Clara County Girl Scout Council to see which area company can identify the most employees who are former Girl Scouts.
The contest runs from Feb. 3 through March 5. The purpose is to reconnect former Girl Scouts with scouting and offer them the opportunity to help girls from low-income families participate in Girl Scout programs.
Employees who were either a Girl Scout, Brownie or Girl Guide are encouraged to send their name, campus address and telephone number to: Girl Scout Contest, Office of Public Affairs, mail code 2040, or send the information by electronic mail to hk.msb@forsythe. Those employees can also pick up a button that reads, "Once a Girl Scout, Always a Girl Scout," in the Office of Public Affairs, Building 170, and fill out the entry card there.
After the contest, Stanford will host a birthday party on March 12 for all employees who are former Girl Scouts, with cake, door prizes and a Girl Scout songfest. If Stanford wins the regional contest, the Santa Clara County Girl Scout Council will make a special presentation at this event. Time and location will be announced later.
For more information, contact Mary Bartlett in the Office of Public Affairs at 723-6479.
