The Girl Scouts of Nassau County (GSNC) recently honored Lisa Elbogen for her adult volunteer service and lifelong achievements with the Girl Scouts. Lisa received the GSUSA Appreciation Pin, which recognized her service in support of delivering the Girl Scout Leadership Experience and her memorable impact in at least one community where Girl Scouting is offered.
In addition to Troop Leadership, Lisa has held two Service Team positions, most recently taking on the role of Association Treasurer. Lisa will continue to serve on this committee as an adult volunteer and use her passion and knowledge of Girl Scouts to benefit the Girl Scouts community.
The ceremony was held at the Hillwood Commons Auditorium at the LIU-Post campus in Brookville.

It’s hard to imagine that it’s Thanksgiving already. Is it me, or did we just celebrate? Halloween wasn’t even upon us and the stores were stocked with Thanksgiving and Christmas items. We say to ourselves, “each year, it comes earlier and earlier.” While some prepare to cook and figure out where to seat relatives to avoid arguments, others plan to dine out. To many of us, Thanksgiving means shopping on Black Friday. But for the few and far between who look forward to catching the latest film from the array released exclusively for the holiday weekend, the time has come to relish relaxation. Sit back and enjoy the weekend at the movies, while the deliciousness of turkey and stuffing is probably still digesting in your tummy.
The following movies opened on Nov. 26:
The Penguins of Madagascar (PG–92 mins)
The Penguins of Madagascar finally have their own movie. If you’re familiar with the previous Madagascar films, featuring the zoo animals and their adventures, then you already know the funny and lovable spy penguins. Packed with animated fun for the whole family, Skipper, Kowalksi, Rico and Private begin a journey as undercover agents to help stop the notorious villain, Dr. Octavious. New and returning voices include Benedict Cumberbatch, John Malkovich, Tom McGrath, Christopher Knight, Ben Stiller, Chris Rock and many more.

If you have a sweet tooth and want a taste of confectionary perfection, take a drive down Manetto Hill Road. Set far back in a shopping center you will find Sweet Karma Bakery. No matter where you park in the lot, your nose will be greeted by the scent of freshly baked cakes and cookies.
