Westlake Girl Scouts decorate cookies for holiday cheer
Westlake 71047 Ambassador Girl Scout Troop made and decorated 90 cookies on Sunday, Dec. 11, for the Westlake Assistance Center to distribute to local families. Three Girl Scouts from North Ridgeville and a friend also participated in the fun. Sugar cookies shaped like trees, wreaths, stockings and stars were made, frosted and decorated, then put into individual plastic bags with a label with the ingredients and a message for holiday cheer.
The cookies were packaged and delivered on Monday, Dec. 12, to the Westlake Assistance Center on Center Ridge Road. The staff at the center were very happy to receive the cookies, and said the cookies would be used in current distributions to families and individuals in the area.
Westlake Girl Scout Troop 71047 has seven members who are juniors at Westlake High School, a private school and one home schooler. Four of the seven girls are currently working or have recently completed their Gold Award, the highest award a Girl Scout can earn. Community service is an important part of being a Girl Scout so making and donating cookies is what Girl Scouts is all about.
Linda Tomkalski is the Troop Leader for Girl Scout Troop 71047.
