Two banners belonging to Los Alamos Girl Scout Troop 116, who have worked so hard organizing RocketDay, have gone missing.
Both banners were apparently stolen from the overpass on Diamond Drive, according to a troop spokesperson. The banners were identical and designed by one of the Girl Scouts, a homeschooler, who won the troop banner design contest back in the spring. The banners, promoting RocketDay, were going to be given to her to keep after the event.
Both banners were proudly displayed on the Girl Scouts’ float in last month’s County Fair and Rodeo Parade.
The banners have been hanging in different locations on the overpass and suddenly disappeared. The money for the banners came out of troop funds and there is not enough money or time to make another banner and the Girl Scouts just want them back.
The troop is disappointed, but pushing on with preparations for RocketDay. Thursday they will paint the White Rock, begin loading the engines in the model rockets and share pizza together.
