MERIDIAN —     There's more to Girl Scouting than selling cookies.

    Scouts also participate in many projects and activities, according to Becca De Lee, a member who is working toward achieving the Gold Award – the highest award in Girl Scouting.

    Becca explained the project she has chosen to achieve her goal at the February meeting of the Collinsville Community Development Club.

     Becca is building benches in a pavilion at Camp Eagle Ridge, a camp for disadvantaged children. She asked for club volunteers to help during a event set for March 8. Collinsville CDC donated $200 for materials to construct the benches.

     Faye Houston called the Feb. 17, 2014, meeting to order. Billy Allen led the Pledge to the Flag.

     For devotion, Gayle Butler shared how God wants to hear us sing instead of complain. She referred to Acts 16, in which Paul and Silas were beaten and put in prison because Paul commanded a spirit of devination to come out of a certain damsel in the name of Jesus Christ. “And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises to God; and the prisoners heard them.” Acts 16:25. Paul and Silas praised God instead of complaining. 

    Butler concluded her presentation with the song, “God Wants to Hear You Sing.”

     Collinsville Community Development Club won the "Outstanding Club of the Year" at the annual Community Development Clubs Awards Banquet, which was held in January.

     Club projects included newspapers delivered to Meridian Animal Control and Collinsville Veterinary Clinic. Bags will be delivered to Hope Village Thrift Store.

     The meeting adjourned and members and guests enjoyed refreshments and fellowship. The serving committee included Vistan Allen, Maureen Sellers, Ellen Walker and Geneva Wedgeworth.

    The club's next meeting wiil be March 17.

Do you think the city of Meridian should aggressively enforce the city's code enforcement laws on litter, abandoned homes and overgrown lots by issuing tickets and stiff fines?
