GIRL SCOUTS OF SAN JACINTO COUNCIL Copper Corners Service Unit held a “Me and My Guy event” on March 2 at Aragon Middle School. Girls and their special guys (dads, granddads, uncles…) participated in “Passport to Italy It was a regular red carpet night and fashion display, as the young ladies and their chosen escorts arrived. Sequins and sparkles, velvet and lace all were part of the fashion parade. A number of couples were also elegantly color-coordinated. Wrist corsages of ribbon roses or real flowers added a stylish note, and we noticed one young lady with a bouquet of beautiful yellow tulips! The event began with a delicious dinner of penne pasta, sauce, and meatballs, served with salad and rolls. and cake for dessert. The cafeteria was transformed into an Italian restaurant, with red checked table cloths and flower centerpieces. Girls made trinket boxes and spoon puppets, and also built “leaning towers” out of marshmallows and toothpicks. - along with pyramids and geodesic domes and other creative constructions. The “goodie walk” and bingo areas were also popular, and girls learned about different pasta shapes and trivia .A “Photograph by Misty” made a great souvenir of the evening. Can’t help wondering how many of the mustache party favors made an appearance in the photographs! It is always such fun to see the girls dancing with their dads or other special guys. DJ’s Andy and Caroline Bartos provided a mix of Italian favorites (like “Amore”) and more current musical selections that enlivened dinner, and got a group of very lively dancers out on the floor! Many thanks to all who helped to make the evening a success, especially Elaine Boubenider, Jerilyn Kortegast and Kristin Kolb, our event chairs. We also are thankful to the older Scouts, who ran the goodie walk. and bingo games, as well as helping in many other areas. Thanks, also to all our adult volunteers, and to Donna Fontenot, Windee Falla and Felicia Ferguson. of our steering committee April 28 is the scheduled date for our Daisy Day Event. Information has been sent to all our Daisy troops about this afternoon event. Contact Diane Massie for more information at 281-550-9148/Dianne. We are expecting to have information on Brownie Day soon, as well as a service unit Bridging event, for troops who are moving to the next Girl Scout Level. Look for more information coming soon! Daisy troop 16465 dressed up in their rodeo outfits for a visit from children’s book author Melanie Chrismer. She read to the girls from her book “Phoebe Clapsaddle and the Tumbleweed Gang, and they had a great time visiting with the popular author. Looks like they may have learned a rope trick or two, as well! (See pictures) Girl Scouts also celebrated the 101st anniversary (March 12) of Girl Scouting in the United States. Many of our Girl Scouts participated in Girl Scout Sunday/Sabbath/Shabbat at their places of worship. Sales of Girl Scout cookies continued through March, but if you didn’t stock up, you might have to wait until next year! Cookie sales are a major source of funding for individual troops, and help to equip 6

and maintain our great camps. The most recent issue of the “Golden Link” had information on day and twilight camps- some in our area. Girl Scouting is open to all girls aged 5 (must be in kindergarten) to 18, who are willing to live by the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Girls may join at any time and any level, and no previous Scouting experience is required. Copper Corners serves girls in the residence areas for Birkes, Fiest and Lowery Elementary schools, Aragon and Labay Middle schools, and the corresponding high schools. Home schooled and private school students are always welcome. It is never too late to get involved in all that Girl Scouts has to offer. Give us a call- we’d love to talk to you!

COPPERFIELD COURIER Making Waves in Texas/Red Dirt Music Scene

The Brandon McDermott Band heads to Cypress Saloon onApril 20th. From Galveston to Amarillo to College Station and now coming to the Cypress area, the Brandon McDermott Band has been bringing their exciting brand of Texas country music to stages all across the Lone Star State. The Brandon McDermott Band started in College Station, TX when McDermott, a graduate of Texas A&M University, began writing songs and playing at open mics. After moving back to his hometown of Galveston and playing some solo acoustic shows, he met up with island musicians Kevin Anderson (lead guitar, harmonica, vocals), Clark Duhon (bass) and Broc Adams (drums, vocals), to form the rest of the band. It didn’t take long for audiences to take notice and start filling up local venues to watch them play. “I think people come out to our shows because we play fun music that they can identify with. We’re not trying to change the world with the songs we write. We just play songs that are fun to drink beer and dance to,” McDermott says. “I’m pretty sure our brand of music could best be described as a river of invaluable information spoken at just the right temperature for skinny dipping,” jokes the band. While the Brandon McDermott Band got their start on Galveston island and has developed a very loyal following there, they have fans all over the state and by no means do they limit their appearances to south of the causeway. The band has made their presence known in the Houston music scene and beyond, and has been sharing the stage with some of Texas music’s biggest names such

as the Josh Abbott Band, Reckless Kelly, Aaron Watson, Brandon Rhyder, Honeybrowne and Bri Bagwell. With the release of their first album, “Mile Marker Zero,” the Brandon McDermott Band has really made their mark on the Texas/Red Dirt music scene. “There is a definitive honesty to the songs on the record… a ‘been there, done that, why do you think I’m drinking?’ quality” that most people can relate to. The album, which is available on iTunes and Amazon, does a great job at capturing the energy and enthusiasm the band brings to their live shows. Currently the band is gearing up to return to the studio to begin recording their second album. On April 20th, The Brandon McDermott Band will be rolling into the Cyfair area for the first time to bring their brand of Texas/Red Dirt Music to the exciting Cypress Saloon. Their live shows have drawn impressive reviews from country music publications and industry people alike; and promises to be chock-full of fun energetic music that is guaranteed to make all in attendance have a heck of a time and asking for more. So mark your calendars, call your friends, put those boots on and make plans to be at the Cypress Saloon on April 20th for the first of hopefully many more visits from the Brandon McDermott Band. You won’t be disappointed.
