‘Partying in Pink’ offered to girls while mothers go holiday shopping

GRANDVIEW – Crafts, games, prizes, dancing, food and plenty of fun will be found at the “Partying in Pink” get-together on the unofficial first shopping day of the holiday season.

Girl Scouts Cadette Troop #392 will host the girls-only party the day after Thanksgiving, Nov. 24, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Proceeds raised from the Girl Scouts fundraiser will be used to pay for troop activities.

All girls who attend are encouraged to wear pink that day.
