Local Girl Scouts recently celebrated the organization's founder, Juliette Gordon Low's Oct. 31 birthday with a slumber party on Friday, Oct. 26 and Saturday, Oct. 27.

The girls participated in a variety of Dr. Seuss-themed activities, which included making ice cream sundaes, creating "Trufala Trees" from the animated film "The Lorax," and the council-wide service project, "Birthday in a Bag."

For the council project, girls gathered up birthday supplies such as candles, cake mix, plates and cups in decorated bags and donated them to the Ozarks Area Community Action Corporation (OACAC) Neighborhood Center in Cassville.

The girls ended the evening by watching "The Lorax" and snacking on goldfish and marshmallows.
