Cookie Season Begins for Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways
The 2023 Girl Scout cookie season is in full swing.
Ten varieties are available for purchase this year: Toffee-tastic®, Thin Mints®, Tagalongs®, Samoas®, Trefoils®, Do-si-dos®, Lemon-Ups®, Girl Scout S’mores®, Adventurefuls™, and the newest addition (and online exclusive), Raspberry Rally™, which the announcement describes as “a thin crispy cookie, infused with raspberry flavor, dipped in chocolate coating.” The cookies cost $5 per box and will be on sale through April 23.
“Every package of cookies our Girl Scouts sell provides invaluable business and leadership skill-building and experiences for them and their troops. Those experiences include community service projects, troop travel, summer camp, badge work and more,” said GSNYPENN CEO Julie Dale. “We appreciate the community’s ongoing support of our troops during the cookie program, our council’s largest annual fundraiser.”

Zoo Run Run Returns to Rosamond Gifford Zoo
Families, mark your calendars for Saturday, April 22. The Zoo Run Run is returning to the Rosamond Gifford Zoo.
First held in 2022, the event features a 5K (participants can run past camels, penguins and more) – plus a fun run for children ages 7 and under. Runners and walkers can also participate virtually, if they prefer.
“The Zoo Run Run is the crossroads of exercise and education,” said Heidi Strong, Friends of the Zoo director of development. “The immersive experience puts runners on a vibrant and colorful course pulsing with life, and later offers the chance to learn more about these rare animals. It is truly a unique way to spend the day!”

Hangar Theatre Announces Upcoming Shows
The Hangar Theatre will present three mainstage productions this summer: What the Constitution Means to Me (June 15-24); Billy Elliot: The Musical (July 6-15); and The Impossible Dream: A Broadway Pops Concert (July 27-30). Tickets will also go on sale this month for its upcoming KIDDSTUFF performances.
“In 2023, we’re focusing on the Hangar Theatre legacy and its future,” said Artistic Director Shirley Serotsky. “We are committed to sharing beautifully-executed, relevant, and dynamic theatrical productions with the community. We’re doing fewer shows this year so that we can do just that, with a reimagined producing model that directs our resources into creating exceptional, memorable shows, the kinds of theatrical experiences the community has come to expect from the Hangar. We’ve been doing this for 49 years – we want to be able to continue doing it for 49 more!”
