Although the weather as of late has been cold, bitter, and miserable, Girl Scout Cookies can always give us a reason to smile. Everyone loves cookies, but Girl Scouts contribute far more than just their unreasonably incredible goodies to their surrounding areas.
According to Lynchburg Girl Scout Troop Co-Leader Ciera Holder, “Girl Scouts allows girls to gain new skills, grow a strong respect for the community, obtain a powerful confidence, and understand their ability to make a difference!”
Lynchburg’s troop has plenty for girls of all ages to enjoy, and it is an investment worth making for those who want to contribute to their communities and learn valuable skills that will help them to become confident and knowledgeable in various fields of activity.
For the past five years, Tam- my Baker has been at the helm of the Lynchburg Girl Scout Troop. She is joined by Holder, Daisy Leader Christa Frasier, and Brownie Leader Sara Bates. These four ladies whole-heartedly dedicate their time and energy to leading the sixteen girls in their troop through activities such as STEM projects, campouts, volunteer opportunities, crafts, color guard, hiking, and much more.
Despite the current circumstances, the Girl Scouts still have projects in the works that will greatly benefit the community. One girl scout is working toward her Bronze Award with a project called “Kaylee’s Cards” that is sure to warm the hearts of the community. Citizens of Lynchburg will be able to leave cards filled with thoughtful words in a box that will be placed somewhere in Lynch- burg; Kaylee will then take the cards and deliver them to those who need to be encouraged during this difficult time.
