The Kittan District just held its first Scout Sister Spa Night! As a thank you for coming to their brother's events throughout the year, scout sisters and their moms were able to be pampered at Capri College! We interviewed three girls: Mackenzie Wisneski, Ellie Scott, and Lilly Law. At the end of the night we recapped with the awesome Sarah Kisner! Thank you to Capri College for a great event!
During a week when everyone is reflecting on what they are thankful for, we thought it was appropriate to take The Pulse of Rusty Boruff. Rusty is the director of The 180 Zone.

We talked about getting lice, keeping up with the Kardashians, and eating tacos with Nelson Mandela.
