Part of the Girl Scout Law states:
I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do
The young women who make up Newaygo Girl Scout Troop 4581 continue to breathe life into the words that make up those guiding principles. A few weeks ago the troop showed their appreciation to our ambulance drivers with some treats (including those famous GS cookies) and we have noted their litany of good deedism delivered throughout the community from the Road Commission to the Fire Department, and many, many others along the way.
So when we heard of their latest endeavor we were pleased, but not surprised.
This time around they went to work planting a beautiful red maple tree on the grounds of the Compassion House in Fremont.
Compassion House, one of N3’s favorite local charities, provides exceptional end of life care for county residents in a setting filled with love and kindness.
And so as part of their participation in Global Youth Service Day the troop took shovels in hand and prepared to dig into the task awaiting them.
The red maple they planted with love will provide years of beauty on the grounds of this wonderfully worthy establishment
Well done Ladies.
This project was made possible by grants from Michigan Community Service Commission and Fremont Area Community Foundation.
