By the way for Oct. 22
Congratulations to Alexis Kouwenhoven of Bristol, who this week was honored by the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains. She was one of only 11 Scouts to receive a Gold Award — and the only Vermonter to do so. The Oct. 18 Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains’ Young Women of Distinction ceremony was held outdoors in Manchester, N.H. To earn the Gold Award, Kouwenhoven had to complete a project that will make her community, state, country, or even the world a better place. Her project is titled “Managing Stress and Anxiety.”
Interesting note from the Girl Scouts awards ceremony. The top seller of Girl Scout cookies in the region was from New Hampshire, where she sold 5,508 boxes of cookies. In Vermont the most successful sales girl was Liliane Gordon of Hinesburg, who sold 2,432.
