The Reading-North Reading Chamber of Commerce encourages everyone to buy local and reinvest back into the community through job creation, taxes and charitable donations.
Reading Girl Scout Troop 73712 asks you to buy local by visiting The Hitching Post on Haven Street or Gregory’s on Main Street to purchase a “Sights of Reading” calendar. The Girl Scouts will be in front of The Hitching Post during the Tree Lighting Festival on Sunday November 25 selling the calendars from noon to 5 p.m.
Local Girl Scouts have taken photographs of local Reading sights; had the calendar printed at a local business, The Graphics Shop; are distributing the calendar at local businesses; are sponsored by local businesses, Sanborn Place Home Care and Day Services, Grumpy Doyle's Restaurant, AV Spectrum, Lee Kimball, Gregory's, Salon Muffie, Tierney Chiropractic, Attorney Timothy J. Kelley, Atty. Rick Carter of Carter Closings, The Olde Redding Butcher Shop, and the Reading Co-operative; and will be using the monies to fund local community service projects. Kasey and Mary Kate, the scouts behind this project, ask you to “Join the Movement and Keep Your Town Alive to Thrive.”
The beautiful photos of Reading can hang on your wall for all of 2013! Reading High School Scouts have produced the 2013 “Sights of Reading” calendar which hangs 11 X 17” with each month displaying an 8 ½” X 11” photo of a sight in Reading. The calendar was produced in 2010 and 2012 and sold out both times. The calendar sells for $12 but buy another for a friend and take advantage of the 2/$20 special.
Visit www.calendarofreading.com to view the photos included. Order forms can be downloaded and more information about the calendar and the Girl Scout projects can be found on the website. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 781-789-6774.
Girl Scouts Kasey Cook and Mary Kate Kelley have accepted the challenge of earning the Girl Scout Gold Award. The Gold Award is the highest and most distinguished award any Girl Scout can earn and is meant to help develop a scout as a leader and make a mark on the community that creates a lasting impact on the lives of others. While working as individuals to identify an issue, investigate it, build a support team, create a plan, gather feedback, take action and educate and inspire others the scouts are working together as a group to raise the necessary funds to carry out the projects. Earning the Gold Award involves many dedicated hours of service and typically takes about two years to complete. All profits from the sale of the calendar will be used to fund the scouts' community service projects.
