Waterbury Troop 64079 members Earn Bronze Award
Posted: Nov 18, 2010
The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest national award a Junior Girl Scout can earn. It demonstrates that the girls have made a promise to help others, improve their community and become the best that they can be.
The 5 Bronze Award recipients and their families received their awards at a dinner at Nino’s Restaurant in Waterbury on November 8, 2010. Pictured left to right: Katelyn, Lucy, Alexa, Colette, and Crystal.
Girls who received the Bronze award are now 6th grade Cadette Girl Scouts in middle and parochial schools in Waterbury and Prospect. Susan Barry from the Prospect VFW Auxiliary presented the girls with Certificates of Achievement. Troop Leaders Caryn Olcik and Shelly Straw presided over the awards ceremony.
The girls wanted to improve the environment in Waterbury and also perform service for Flanders Nature Center in Woodbury.
They earned the Eco-Action and the Earth Connection badges, the Lead On badge, the Sign of the World and the Junior Aide patch to gain the leadership skills needed to carry out their community project.
Their 15 hour community project included 6 hours of planning and 9 service hours for cleanup in the Hamilton Park area on Waterbury Earth Day, uprooting and bagging invasive plants such as Garlic Mustard at Flanders Nature Center and preparing the soil and planting perennial plants at the outdoor chapel at Mill Plain Union Church in Waterbury.
