CROWN POINT | Four Crown Point girls have earned the Bronze Award, the highest award a Junior Girl Scout can earn.

Members of Troop 30277 have been working since 2011 to complete requirements to earn the award. Requirements included completing a Girl Scout journey, team building, discovering a need in the community and a service project which provides a lasting solution to the problem.

The girls worked with St. Anthony nursing home and provided magazine subscriptions and a magazine rack for the residents there. To purchase these items they used profits from their sales.

In the fall Girl Scouts sold nuts, candies and magazines. In addition, the Girl Scout cookie sale runs from January through March. They also accepted donations, and acquired a corporate sponsor, Crown Point's Hometown Happenings.

The girls recently went to St. Anthony’s to present their project. They were also able to share a few songs and a folk dance, and visit with the residents.
