The Girl Scouts of Western New York will honor its Gold Award recipients at noon June 4 at Samuel’s Grande Manor, 8750 Main St., Williamsville.
During the ceremony, multiple scholarships will be awarded. The annual Gold Award ceremony serves as a way to celebrate the achievements of Girl Scouts contributing to their community through service projects. Girls have created projects from cooking and gardening programs, teaching the homeless to sew, animal conservation and care, healthy living, emergency preparedness, personal safety and elder care.
A Girl Scout’s project should be something that a girl can be passionate about in thought, deed and action that encompasses organizational, leadership and networking skills. The project should also fulfill a need within a girl’s community, whether local or global, and create change that has the potential to be ongoing or sustainable. Approximately 80 hours of community service are involved in the project.
