Girl Scout memo to all East Columbia Girl Scout troops and their leaders:

The newly designed "Daisy" and "Brownie" Girl Scout uniforms have arrived for fall meetings and are available at the Girl Scout Equipment Agency, 730 W. 40th St., Baltimore.

Daisy Scouts can select the new long-sleeve or short-sleeve T-shirt to wear with shorts or tunic, with an added touch of newly designed socks.

There's something new for leaders too, the "Official Daisy Girl Scout Pin."

The easy-care Brownie uniforms are colorful, casual and fun to wear for all activities.

Snap-on neckties and silver tone "western" buckles accessorize the floral print top culotte jumper, flounced knit shirt, T-shirts, shorts and tailored pants. And, from a practical point of view, the separates can be worn to non-Scout events, too.

The equipment agency hours for August are: Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Information: 410-889-2861.
