The school year may be over, but the Girl Scout experience is still going strong. After a successful cookie sale, Sudbury Troop 77130 decided to spread the joy to a soldier from their hometown currently serving in Kosovo. Other Girl Scout troops from Sudbury pooled their Cookies for a Cause, collecting more than 150 boxes for the military. Read the Sudbury Town Crier article to learn about the girls’ community spirit.
Congrats to Emma Powers of Norfolk Girl Scout Troop 73600 on earning her Silver Award,
the highest award a Cadette Girl Scout can earn! Emma’s project helps elementary school students improve their reading skills. Working with the Norfolk Public Library and a Special Education teacher, she learned different methods for teaching young children. She then developed and taught her own multiple-day reading program at the public library. By using art, she taught the children how to visualize the words they were reading which helped to bring the stories to life!
Talk about going above and beyond! East As part of their Bronze Award service project, Bridgewater Girl Scout Troop 81157 held a variety of activities, including a candy bar raffle, to raise money for the New England Wildlife Center. When the time came to drop off their donations, they had to make many trips in and out of the center with hands full of donations that added up to almost $1,000! The Wildlife Center thanks the troop for their inspiring and generous work.
Kingston Girl Scouts Elizabeth Doyle and Jessica Slattery learned that the local animal shelter needed a replacement cat house. For their Silver Award project, the girls built an outdoor feral cat house, held a canned cat food and litter drive for the animal shelter. The girls’ great work was featured in the Kingston Reporter.
Six members of Junior Girl Scout Troop 63175 recently earned their Bronze Award. The group chose to give the Tyngsboro Recreation Center a makeover, transforming it into a more inviting space for members of the community. The girls spent most of their February school vacation cleaning and painting the 1,800-square-foot recreation center, including the small kitchen and large meeting room. Since the girls didn’t have a large budget for the project, they used items they already had at home, from household cleaners, rags and drop cloths to paint rollers, paint trays and brushes. The six gallons of paint were donated by Sherburne Lumber of Tyngsboro. The girls also made each window treatment, using donated fabric and putting their sewing skills to work.
