Anna, Brook, Nicole, Sarah, Latoya, and Amanda of Troop 35 in Fayette recently earned their Silver Award. The girls collaborated with The Fayette’s Women’s Garden Club. They had a planning meeting with one of the members and then began their work. They started at Fayette’s hospital by dead heading the roses, then worked on Guthrie Smith Park by planting over 500 tulip bulbs and also planted pansies around the flag pole at the County Courthouse. As part of the beautification plan for the city, the girls worked at an event to help raise money and awareness and planted more bulbs in areas along local highways, as well as worked on the local scout hut to improve its looks as well. They have plans to continue to keep the plants trim and to replant flowers as needed.

The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. This award symbolizes a Girl Scout Cadette’s accomplishments in Girl Scouting and community activities as she matures and works to better her life and the lives of others.
