MONROE — The Monroe Girl Scout Community's recent Powder Puff Derby at the South Orange Family YMCA gave girls the opportunity to shape, construct and race their own wooden cars at an event where they could work with their parents - or by themselves - to create cars.
The sixth annual derby not only tested the girls' design work, but gave them a lesson in mechanics and physics with the intent to create the fastest winning car. Girls representing the Cadette, Junior, Brownie and Daisy levels of scouting participated.
Parent volunteers, led by Perry Sikorsky, helped run the event on a computerized track.
"Each car had its own special kind of flare that each of the innovative girls were able to imagine," said Service Unit Manager Tanya Woods. "The South Orange Family YMCA provided the perfect space for the races and its staff area always and gracious supporters of the Girl Scouts. We appreciate the support of all our volunteers and the generosity of the Y."
