Girl Scouts of Troop #141 in Patrick Springs had a recognition service on Sunday, April 24, 2016, in the fellowship hall at Providence United Methodist Church. The troop recognized Callie C., Emily N. and Jalyssa W. for earning their Bronze Awards as Juniors. They also then flew up to become Cadette Girl Scouts.
Then the troop recognized their Ambassador Girl Scout members Sydnee B., Katherine M., and Kaelyn T. for earning their Gold Awards. These girls were also recognized for their recognition given them from the local VFW Scout of the Year awards.
All the girls were given badges and patches they have earned this year from their troop leader Melanie Nelson. They also received patches or pins from their award adviser Cathy Natoli.
Then Polly Greer showed the girls and explained to them about friendship knots sent to her from Girl Scouts around the country. These are a way for scouts to share the friendships they make with other Girl Scouts. Finally the girls and their guests then enjoyed pizza and ice cream sundaes to celebrate the great year this Girl Scout troop has had.
