Girl Scout Junior Troop 2731 of Assumption School earns Bronze Award

On May 15, Girl Scout Junior Troop 2731 of Assumption School in Belmont successfully completed their Bronze Award, the highest award a junior-level Girl Scout can earn. The Bronze Award consists of completing badge work in skills and leadership, in conjunction with planning and executing a service project. Each girl needed to complete 15+ hours to earn this award.

Girl Scouts Molly Kalinowski and Heather Denton sew acoustic panels for their school’s music center.

The troop chose their school’s music center as the focus of their project to show school spirit and give back to their school community. The music center needed acoustical and visual improvements, both of which the Scouts were eager to supply. To fund their project, the troop used their proceeds from their Girl Scout cookie sales.

Together the troop created six original, music-inspired paintings to energize the space visually. To address the acoustical problems, they sewed and hung fabric to cover the room’s entire back wall to help diminish echo in the room. They also completed other improvements such as painting the doors, walls and hallway floor, building and installing coat hooks, hanging a new light, reupholstering the piano bench, and even polishing the old piano.

The room and hallway were completely transformed and the troop feels that the school’s band and music programs will certainly enjoy using the newly refurbished room.

Troop 2731 members who earned the Bronze Award are: Kirsten Brinkmeier, Katie Cruikshank, Heather Denton, Rachel Foster, Molly Kalinowski, Mary Novak, Aubrey Paganelli, Maddie Ripple, Kate Sakoski, Eliza Solarawicz and Margarita Whyte.
