On Oct. 13, Girl Scout Senior Troop 71047 and Cadette Troop 70289 presented a large wall art project to the Our House senior living facility in Westlake.

The wall art was created as a Community Service Project at a recent Service Unit Campout, attended by Girl Scouts and leaders from the entire Westlake area. Numerous 6-inch squares were created by the girls and leaders with glue, colorful beads, gems and trinkets. The squares were then assembled on a large wood base to create the stunning art piece.

Our House Inc., located on Bassett Road, has been generous to the Girl Scout community for many years. Presenting the wall art seemed like a perfect fit. The art will be displayed in a common area for residents to enjoy and the Girl Scouts of Westlake are able to show their appreciation for all the time and resources the center has given to the girls of the community.
