Maddie & Mary Frances Earn Silver Award

Troop 130 members Maddie from Our Lady of Sorrows and Mary Frances from Pizitz Middle School, recently earned the Girl Scout Silver Award for their project with Hand in Hand. The girls worked with the organization to create a garden that would help with sensory stimulation. The girls learned many new things during the project, including how to select and plant bulbs, how to build a teepee, and how to harvest, clean and dry herbs. The girls also learned the importance of working within a budget.

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.
