Brownie Troop 20432 completed its first community service project by building and painting a bird house, which it dedicated to St. David’s-in-the-Pines Episcopal Church in Wellington on Saturday, June 23.
This was also part of a Take Action project for the Brownie Journey “A World of Girls.” The troop meets at the church twice each month for meetings. The girls wanted to do something nice for the church as a way to say thank you. With the help of their fathers, the girls had a chance to use a table saw, drill and paint to complete the project. They earned their Woodworking Badge and placed the bird house in the church’s butterfly garden. The Brownies will continue to maintain the bird house and help tend to the butterfly garden in the years to come.
