Suffolk County Legislator Tom Donnelly recently commended seven local Girl Scouts from North Babylon and West Babylon for their work in the community that earned them Silver Awards, the highest award available to Girl Scout Cadettes.
In a ceremony held at Robert Moses Middle School in North Babylon on November 5, Legislator Donnelly presented County Proclamations to the following girls for their projects:
Ashley Beck and Briana Nevers, who hosted sewing classes, collected fabric donations and created pillowcases for a children’s charity; Daniela Schierle and Emma Vieta, who collected portable DVD players and other electronic and print books for the children’s ward at Good Samaritan Hospital; Mackenzie and Peyton Losardo, who beautified Phelps Park by painting large trash cans; and Stephanie Velez, who organized and collected a large amount of school supplies for children in need.
In order to qualify for the Silver Award, Girl Scouts must perform at least 50 hours of service and complete a full report on their self-developed project.
“These dedicated young women have selflessly contributed their time and skills to assist others and our community and, in doing so, have already proven themselves to be leaders,” said Legislator Donnelly. “We are all proud of their accomplishments and appreciative of their contributions.”
