Parra Earns Silver Award
Eliana Parra, a Cadette Girl Scout from Troop 30245 earned her Silver Award, the second highest award in Girl Scouts. While volunteering for a senior center in Falls, Parra learned that the senior citizens at the center would love to garden, however due to mobility issues, traditional gardening was difficult. She solved the problem and built 11 stands on wheels for the seniors to garden with their Earth boxes. For information on volunteering or joining Girl Scouts, contact Girl Scouts in the Heart of PA at 800-692-7816 or visit gshpa.org.
