Troop Tuesday: National Bridging Week

Service units across our council are preparing for their special Bridging Ceremonies—just like Service Unit 3622 of Fairview, Erie County. Congratulations to all of these troops! All that you’ve done during this Girl Scout level is remarkable, and we’re rooting for you as you start your next level—your next adventure!

Troop 36860 completed two Journeys this year. The girls worked with others to clean up the Avonia Beach butterfly garden and learned about the Girl Scout Law to complete Welcome to the Flower Garden. Then they learned all about how to care for themselves and animals completing the 5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals by meeting a special three legged cat named Taco, meeting a local veterinarian, and making educational books for the Humane Society.

Troop 36860 also worked on their automotive engineering skills, learned all about robots, tested their skills in toy designing, and met with the Erie County Executive Kathy Dahlkemper to learn about government.
