Making the world a better place

Girl Scouts promise to make the world a better place, so on Earth Day, Carnation Brownie Troop 1945 joined with the King County Parks Department and Girl Scouts from Juanita to spruce up John MacDonald Park in Carnation.
   The girls planted and mulched new trees and added mulch to trees that were planted by Cub Scouts in the fall. They also worked to establish native plants along the Snoqualmie River to help salmon.
   Chelsea Green, Deidre Greenfield, Katrina England, Brianna Wattier, Chloe Dziok, Danielle Stone, Alexa Wehmeyer, Hannah Kradenpoth, Alicia Green, Jazmin Baker, Meredith Kuhn, Angela Thomas and Jessica Birkner from Troop 1945 worked hard on these improvements.
   Troop parents Anne Dziok, Nancy Birkner, Kacie England and Magan Kuhn also pitched in.
   Girl Scouts make important contributions to neighborhoods through community service.
   In partnership with committed adults, girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives such as strong values, social conscience and conviction about their own potential and self-worth. Through Girl Scouts, they discover the fun, friendship and power of girls together.
   With the many enriching experiences provided by the Girl Scouts, they can grow courageous and strong.
