Scouts from Arlington’s Girl Scout Troop 42168 recently earned their Bronze Awards with the completion of two projects in the city.

Scouts Ivy Heart, Riliegh Carr, Patience Hartman and Abby Stevenson designed, built and installed a Little Free Library in the shape of Dr. Who’s TARDIS on Third Street, just west of the entrance to Presidents Elementary School. In addition, they refurbished the Little Free Library that was originally installed at Haller Park. The refurbished library has been relocated to Terrace Park.

Scouts Annabelle Smith, Grace Lish, Genevieve Stoeckel and Ashley Vogel worked on improvements to the dog agility course in the Stormwater Wetlands Park. The girls added signs at the entrance of Eagle Trail to bring awareness of the agility course’s location. They also added a pet waste station at the course’s entrance gate.

The Arlington Rotary Club helped with a $350 grant for the projects.

The Bronze Award is the third-highest award in Girl Scouts and the highest honor a Junior Scout can achieve.
