Troop 136 of Vestavia Hills earned the Bronze Award for their assistance to the Alabama Wildlife Rescue Center. The troop helped out with the center’s annual craft and bake sale in December by decorating the center including origami birds and a children’s booth. The troop also helped on Martin Luther King Jr. Day by repairing nets and cleaning up the purple martin bird houses. Troop 136’s assistance also cleaned the center’s facilities for future animals.

The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior can earn. This award recognizes that a Girl Scout Junior has gained the leadership and planning skills required to follow through with a project that makes a positive difference in her community.
