On May 19-20, Junior Girl Scout Troop 20403, based in Royal Palm Beach, endured the rain to complete the service project for their bronze level service award.
The Bronze Award is awarded to scouts who complete 20 hours of service planning and carrying out a community service project. Troop 20403 focused their attention on restoring the welcome area at Girl Scout Camp Welaka in Tequesta.
Improvements made to the welcome center included restoring the ice machine, installing a new water fountain, painting the picnic tables and completing needed roof repairs. The welcome center building was also given a fresh coat of paint inside and out. A new map was created and installed, and many of the camp trail signs were repaired and painted.
The troop and their families worked hard to secure donations from area businesses. A special thank you to the following area businesses for their donations to this project: Sherwin-Williams, Aldi, Intuitive Signs, Professional Plumbing, Suffolk Construction, Florida Panthers Ice Den, Word of Mouth Refinishing and Automotive Management Concepts.
