Laura and Helga are involved in US Girl Scouts Overseas in Brownies troop #6. For the past 2 weeks all the US Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts here in Panama have been raising funds to make a donation to the Red Cross for the Katrina victims’relief fund. Several girls from our troop,including Laura,have been working at asking people for donations and putting collection cans in various businesses around town. The money is to be all turned in by Monday. So far around $3,000 has been counted,and not all funds are in yet! We’re excited that we could be a part of this opportunity to help people who have lost so much.
Yesterday all the participating scouts had the opportunity to meet the new US Ambassador to Panama,William Eaton. He stopped by to pose for a number of pictures with the scouts and to give them words of commendation and thanks.
Laura’s a row in front of the ambassador,a little to the right of the center.
Now Laura is right in front of him.
