COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- A new lawsuit aiming to block the sale of four Girl Scout camps in northeast Ohio has cast a shadow amid the celebration of the organization's big anniversary.
Monday marks 100 years since a group of youngsters first assembled for a Girl Scout meeting.
Volunteer Lynn Richardson of Bedford says some Ohio members are feeling more sad than celebratory because regional directors plan to sell several camps, despite objections from scouts and other leaders. Richardson is among members suing the Girl Scouts of North East Ohio in an effort to block the sale of camps in Carroll, Lake, Seneca and Summit counties.
Organization leaders in the 18-county region have said it needs to sell some of its camps for financial reasons. They've said proceeds might help upgrade remaining camp properties.
