Girl Scout Troop 2610 members Kensie, Mackenzie, Anna Lee, Maizie, Katie, Anna  and Olivia, recently earned their Silver Awards after bringing their version of Extreme Home Makeover to the Lovelady Center. To complete the project girls sent letters asking people for donations. Through those contributions, the girls were able to paint the walls and bedframes, caulk the bathroom, hang new blinds and curtains, and purchase new bedding. The troop said they wanted to give the women and children a pretty space to rebuild their lives. This project was completed while the girls were in the eighth grade at Homewood Middle School and Altamont.

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.
