And the bronze award goes to...
Westlake Girl Scout Troop 71047 concluded their Bronze Award project with a May 15 dedication ceremony at Bradley Road Nature Park. The scouts – Gabriela Kosakowski, Kara McNeilly, Kelley Moutoux, Melanie Rence, Vanessa Richards, Emily Steigerwald, Holly Tomkalski and Adrienne Wentling, under the guidance of leaders Linda Tomkalski and Roberta Rence – identified all of the animal inhabitants at the Nature Park as a service to the community. The city’s sign shop printed their research onto signs installed in an information display at the park.
Mel Maurer reprised his role as Westlake pioneer Leverett Johnson for the ceremony and Mayor Dennis Clough presented a proclamation.
The Bronze Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior can receive, and recognizes a scout’s leadership and planning skills as demonstrated in a project that makes a positive impact on her community.
