Scouts earn Silver Awardby Marwa
Cadette Girl Scout Troop 197 of Wheatfield recently held a dinner and Silver Award Ceremony at the Elks Lodge. The Silver Award is the second highest award a Girl Scout can achieve. The girls earned the award by helping to host a basket auction and spaghetti dinner that raised money for the Lakeview Animal Sanctuary. The girls also helped to reinstate the Mother Scent Doll Program at Women and Children's Hospital, which benefits babies in the neonatal intensive care unit.
