The 20 girls of troop 1895 worked hard this past membership year and completed many service projects, making their community a better place. The girls dsiplayed tremendous courage this year after losing one of their own sister scouts, Gabby Bowling, to cancer. Of the experience, Kristi Sullivan, Leader, says "The girls embraced her and helped in so many ways. They raised $645 one morning just by selling lemonade at a local yard sale. We will dearly miss her! "
The girls took that spirit and did some amazing things, here is a look back:
- Cleaned used toys for 3 hours for a toy sale at Brighton Center for low income families,
- Made soap and candles for the military,
- Decorated a tree for wildlife to help their animal friends during the winter months, mailed care packages to the military in Afghanistan.
- Supported our community and walked in the parade,
- Located all the “SAFE Places” in our area,
- P.R.A.Y. for a year for a Philippines missionary family, Luke Lyons and had a candlelight service,
- Gathered 125 pairs of shoes for Honduran families (Soles for Souls program) and we had 12 girls who had perfect attendance for 21 meetings!
Troop 1895's MOTTO is “One girl can make a difference but as a troop we ROCK”!
