Troop 979 Earns Bronze Award

Troop 979 members Catherine, Jane, Caroline, Amelia, Jocelyn, Gabby, Kayleen and Alexis of Oak Mountain Middle School earned their Bronze Award for volunteering at Special Kids night at Oak Mountain Presbyterian Church. This is an evening where parents of special needs children can spend the evening alone doing something for themselves while volunteers look after the kids. The girls were told what to expect and discussed ways to help out. The girls coordinated fun activities and games, and performed a puppet show for the kids. 

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.
