We are Troop 71171 in Frederick/Firestone. Our Juniors have been working on their Bronze Award this year. In February, March, and April of 2017, our girls had events at our local senior center, including game and puzzle night, Easter egg coloring, and craft night. For their final event, they had a huge spaghetti dinner and bingo night. We fed 37 seniors, 13 Girl Scouts, and eight adult volunteers. ?
Our girls cooked and served dinner (spaghetti, meatballs, salad, and bread), dessert (brownies and ice cream), and drinks (water, coffee, lemonade) all night long. They led a rousing game of bingo as well. They were complimented left and right on their behavior and manners. They sent each senior home with a gift bag full of goodies donated by our community through a drive that the Girl Scouts led through their elementary schools. We are very proud of the work they have done this year.
