Sister Girl Scout, Ariel, struggled with the effects of bullying. As a result, she and her troop stood up. They stood strong. It’s now their mission to spread an anti-bullying message as they also work to earn their Girl Scout Silver Award.
Troop 170 spent the last year planning a free event called "We R 1" in Patterson that involved community organizations, information about bullying, as well as some fun and games. The event proved to be a huge success with more than 100 people in attendance. It didn’t stop there. The troop was invited to present their anti-bullying campaign at more events as well as address the local City Council. Ariel gave a speech about her experience at both the community event and for City Council. Attendees were moved, and many even brought to tears.
Troop Leader Angela Kraft said, “The girls have done a tremendous job. I am proud of all of their efforts and look forward to seeing their campaign continue.”
Congratulations to Troop 170 for making a positive impact in the community!
