The annual Girl Scout “Me and My VIP” dance was held at Our Lady of Loretto Parish Hall Feb. 1. The dance is one of the highlights of the Girl Scout year. Each year a troop chooses a different theme. The theme for the 2014 dance was “a blast from the past.”

The event was organized by Cadette Troop 1406 and its leaders, Paula Calimano and Susan Richardson, along with Girl Scouts Jamie, Tatiana, Morgan, Amy and Grace, with help from their parents.

The girls were asked to dress up in their favorite “era” to take a blast back in time on the dance floor. First place went to Elaine Llewellyn and her dad, Dave Llewellyn, who dressed up as cavewoman and caveman.

Elaine Llewellyn and her dad, Dave Llewellyn, won the costume contest.

The troop will plant a time capsule in the spring with notes and pictures from all the troops in the Hudson Highlands. The community is looking for adult volunteers. If you are interested or have a daughter who would like to join Girl Scouts, contact Deirdre Knapp at 845-265-9485.
