Two area Girl Scouts earn their Silver Awards
Julia Owens, Rosemount, and Jennie Rapuano, Eagan, have been working on their Girl Scout Silver Award - Encouraging Fitness for Kids.
They are in the Rosemount Valley Service Unit - Cadette Troop 52576. Attached are pictures of when they delivered over 500 items - soccer balls, footballs, softballs, baseballs, basketballs, pumps, pinnies, kickballs, gloves, jump ropes, cones, bats, headbands and so on, to the Boys and Girls Club in Minneapolis on Jan. 3.
They collected used sports equipment from Rosemount and Eagan communities in early December (collecting items at AnyTime Fitness locations). They contacted RAAA, EAA, Rosemount and Eagan Girl Scout Service Units, friends and family to donate used sports equipment. They also raised money by making head bands and water bottle carriers that they sold at the Rosemount Valley Girl Scout Craft Fair in December to help buy sport equipment. They plan to have a fitness day in May for 4th and 5th graders and have a website they are using to communicate their project.
