Food for fines at the library: The Cullman Public Library is offering Food for Fines through today. We will forgive $1 in overdue fines for every non-perishable food item (canned or boxed) that a patron brings in. All items collected will go to the local food banks. Food cannot be used for pay for lost or damaged items.

Call for 2014 Women of Distinction nominees: The Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama (GSNCA) is now accepting nominations for each of the Women of Distinction Awards Programs. Nominations may be submitted by any individual, employer, civic organization or agency in each of the four areas (Central, East, North and West). Awardees will be selected in December by a group of community leaders from across the council. The awards are open to women who have made special contributions to their communities through civic, academic or professional efforts.
The 2013 North Alabama Women of Distinction Awards are open to all women in Colbert, Cullman, DeKalb, Franklin, Jackson, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Limestone, Madison, Marshall, Morgan and Winston counties. Women chosen for this award will be recognized at the annual Women of Distinction event at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville in Aug. 2014. GSNCA will also present the Christine Richard Lifetime Achievement Award which honors the memory of a beloved community leader whose contributions had far-reaching impact for the north Alabama area. Nomination forms are available online at girlscoutsnca.org/wodnorth.
The deadline for all nominations is Nov. 22, 2013. The Women of Distinction Awards Program is the premier fundraising event for GSNCA. All proceeds from these events directly support the Girl Scouts’ mission to build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.
