I'm excited to participate - I've just sent off my email to Ms. Hornfischer! It's nice to see something positive happening in the downtown area. Sounds like fun. I only wish I was still a girl scout leader!

Kim: The Framingham Girl Scouts plan to decorate 3 trees and paint several downtown windows. And the girls scouts are always looking for new leaders ... we'd love to have you again!

I had SUCH fun as a girl scout leader! I remember taking them to sing carols on the steps of Town Hall - yikes, that must have been almost 20 years ago. I'm so happy they're taking part in the festivities downtown - now that I've said how much I miss it, I should look into it again. Thanks for the encouragement :)
