Girl Scouts of Lodi celebrated seven girls who earned the Silver Award, the highest award for Cadettes. Each of these girls had to identify a need in our community, then develop, plan and lead a service project that required at least 50 hours of work.
From Troop 2029, Abby and Annie Jaeger created a plan that collects donated Halloween Candy and sends it to our military overseas. Caroline Seibly set up stations around town to collect toiletries that are distributed regularly to the homeless. Paige Mattei connected women in shelters looking for work with hair stylists willing to give them a free haircut. And Jordan Morton developed an educational brochure for elementary school students to help them learn about the benefits of exercise, so that they might spend less time on video games.
From Troop 130, Juniper Neff developed a Minecraft game that introduces children to the importance of being Outdoors. Ashley Clark worked closely with the Boys & Girls Club of Lodi to refurbish their learning center, adding hundreds of new books, as well as helping them find new furniture for the kids.
We are so proud of these girls, and we thank them for their hard work and dedication to the community of Lodi!
