Girl Scouts in Cadette Troop 226 recently received the Silver Award, the highest award that can be earned by a Cadette Girl Scout.
The project the Scouts selected was "Community Wellness" and, in conjunction with the ninth annual Kids' Day at the Little League Museum, they held a wellness fair.
The Scouts have shown dedication, according to troop leader Linda Crockett, who said that by earning the award, they have demonstrated that they are young women of character, capable of devoting themselves to a worthy task.

Crockett said the girls spent the past two years working on their service project, earning interest project badges and doing a variety of activities that related to the award.
Also, the Scouts were welcomed into another level of Girl Scouts by bridging from Cadette Scouts to Senior Scouts during a ceremony held March 31 in the St. Ann School gymnasium.
The ceremony featured the Scouts reciting poems, the Girl Scout Promise and the Girl Scout Law.
Anthony DiSalvo also lead the Scouts in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag.
Scout Mikela Hoffman also played the harp during the ceremony.
