In the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland Council, Girl Scouts are celebrating Earth Day, April 22, by taking action in their own communities!
Girl Scout Troop 60005 met Saturday at the Liberal Garden Center to learn about plants and have already put their new knowledge to use. With the help of Liberal Garden Center staff members, the girls picked out the best plants to use for an Earth Day community service project Monday at Dorothy’s House in Liberal. Dorothy’s House now has beautiful, new flowers on display.
“They had a lot of fun, and it felt good to make a difference for Earth Day,” said Girl Scout Volunteer Michele Stoddard. “This is just one of the community service projects this troop has done with their Cookie Sale profits.
“Thanks to all who bought cookies to help us make a difference in our community!”
In Reno County, Girl Scouts have already started organizing the Great American Can Roundup and have invited the community to participate in this nationwide environmental fundraiser that benefits both Girl Scouts and the Earth!
The public is encouraged to bring aluminum cans to Midwest Iron and Metal, 700 S. Main St. in Hutchinson, on Saturday, April 26 between 8:00 a.m. and noon. For more details, go to: http://bit.ly/1nmhWlE
