Milford Girl Scouts appreciate local support for projects
To the Editor:
Milford Girl Scout Troops 10111 and 12027 have worked hard this past year on community service projects, badge work and fundraising for a year-end wrap-up trip to Vermont. They wouldn’t be able to do so much without the support of their family and community.
They would like to thank the following local businesses for sponsoring their spaghetti dinner held in March and pancake breakfast/yard sale held in May: Foodee’s Pizza, Dunkin’ Donuts, The Happy Butchers, Longhorn Steakhouse, Panera Bread, Walmart, Shaw’s Supermarket, Brookview Sugar House (Wilton), Atkins Family Sugar House (Washington), Papa Joes, The Fishercats, Yankee Chef, West End Hair Salon, From the Garden Table, and Lowes. Both events, as well as weekly meetings, were held at the Milford First Congregational Church and the troops thank it for its ongoing support. Community Service projects are a big part of Girl Scouts. The troops have held a diaper collection and put together baby supply bags for The Stork Project (www.thestorkproject.org), an underwear and swimsuit collection for SHARE, and a shoe collection for developing countries through the Girl Scouts of Green & White Mountains council. One of their most visible projects is the brick garden wall around the flag pole at Milford’s First Congregational Church. This wall coincided with the Girl Scout Silver Award presented to Erica Faucher, a Cadet in Troop 10111. The silver award is one of the highest Girl Scout awards achievable. These troops are often seen marching in the various Milford parades, most recently they were part of the Memorial Day parade carrying banners for several veterans organizations.
Thank you to the Milford and area community for supporting the Girl Scouts.
