As the old nursery rhyme goes, if girls are made of "sugar and spice and everything nice," then the Distinguished Women's Award Reception 2001 for the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland certainly gave some evidence of that. As soon as you entered the Woodholme Country Club ballroom, you were greeted with the aroma of sugar and cinnamon. The buffet abounded with freshly baked cakes and cookies. But the sweet atmosphere also reflected the feel-good essence of the get-together as the organization honored five local women for their values, skills, knowledge and leadership.

With microphone in hand, Bruce Simpers began a call to the four couples forming a square in Catonsville Senior Center. "Bow to your partner," he sang out. "Now bow to your corner." The participants in the Summer Casual Square Dancing Club obediently faced each other, bowed and bowed once again to the person on their other side. Then, they eagerly waited for the next command from Simpers, a square dance veteran who has called out steps for two decades to groups ranging from Scouts to seniors.

You couldn't have a Scouting expo without a monkey bridge or a rope knot booth, or those Dutch ovens made out of 5-pound coffee cans. But how about a computer in pieces on an exhibition table, a duckpin bowling lane made from particle board or tennis lessons? Traditional Girl and Boy Scouting activities lined up alongside the new wave of Scouting on the concourse of PSINet Stadium yesterday in Scout Expo 2000, the first joint venture of the Baltimore Area Council, Boy Scouts of America, and the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland.
