A group of Girl Scouts in Kewaunee are banking on Thin Mints and Tagalongs to help them improve a local park. Kewaunee Girl Scout Troop 4160 is raising funds through their cookie sales to help make improvements at Selner Park this spring and summer. The improvements include repainting the playground equipment, staining nearby benches, and fixing the park’s west staircase. Eleven-year-old Bella Bertrand says not only does the project allow her to hang out with her fellow Girl Scouts, but it also makes the community a better place.
With a little help from the weather and some extra cookie sales opportunities this month, Bertrand hopes they are able to finish the project by the end of April. The Bronze Award is the top honor a Girl Scout Junior can receive and the third highest in the organization. Girl Scout Juniors have to complete a journey program, build their team, and execute a service project to earn the Bronze Award.
