Eagan Girl Scout Troop 57292 received its Bronze Award and bridged from Juniors to Cadettes on Sept. 7. The Troop spent well over 20 hours to earn the Bronze Award. They succeeded in their goal to spread the word about the benefits of pet adoption from animal shelters and the importance of placing microchips for pets in order to reunify lost pets with their owners.
The Troop raised money through a silent auction for tie blankets that they made. They used the proceeds from their silent auction to purchase items from a local pet store to donate to a regional animal rescue group. They also made videos and posters about microchipping to educate the public and assisted at a local microchipping event at a nearby vet clinic.
The girls said they are excited about their plans this year, as they hope to work on a variety of badges, service work, field trips and local Eagan service unit events, in addition to selling Girl Scout Cookies
