Encinitas Girl Scouts Deliver 100 Handmade Pillows to Comfort Scripps Cancer Patients

A dozen Encinitas Girl Scouts from Troops 1359 and 1650 who are striving to earn their Silver Award — the second-highest honor that the scouts bestow — paid a heartfelt visit to Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas Sept. 22.
