Troop 524 Earns Bronze Award

Troop 524 members Carrie, Lillian, Becca, Abby, Alex and Elizabeth earned their Girl Scout Bronze Award after giving the Crestline Girl Scout House a much-needed facelift. To raise money for the project, the troop participated in a charity garage sale benefiting Children’s of Alabama. With the funds raised through the garage sale, the girls were able to repair the ceiling, paint the walls, and replace broken soap and paper towel dispensers. In addition, each troop that uses the house was given their own wall panel for displaying artwork and projects. Other organizations that also use the house now have individual storage shelves.

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.
