Locust Fork Girls Earn Bronze Award

The members of Troop 1281 which includes Jenna, Emilie, Katie, Hannah, Susanna, Alana, Cierra, Layla, Kendall, Abigail, Jordan and Jodie all of Locust Fork adopted the Olive Branch nursing home for their Bronze Award project. The girls went to The Olive Branch several times and made 25 lap quilts, planted flowers for the home, read to the residents, played games and held a sing-along party. The girls enjoyed hearing the histories that the residents shared and becoming close friends. The girls learned how to be better listeners through this project.

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.
