At Girl Scouts, girls are always counting down to the next adventure we’ll go on together. Maybe it’s artistic. Maybe it’s an experiment. Maybe it’s getting outside or helping the community. With us, you’ll make a bunch of new friends and have a ton of new experiences that show you how exciting the world is, and how awesome you are, over and over again.
So, what are you waiting for? Girl Scouts is for girls of all abilities in grades K-12. Adult volunteers are needed to form troops; training and support is provided; the girls provide the fun.

When Mark Messman took on the job of superintendent of the Eden Valley-Watkins School District, he had some very big shoes to fill. Larry Peterson’s.
With the job, though, came a cohesive staff, vibrant student body, and a number of practices in place that work well. Much of what Messman has done in the past 14 months on the job is to continue these practices, and enhance the assets that are already there.
At this year’s “welcome back teachers” breakfast, sponsored by the State Bank in Eden Valley, Messman set out to make his own mark (pun intended) on the district: the “Rock” award.
