Two earn highest honor

NORTH CREEK Two senior Girl Scouts from North Creek earned Girl Scouting's highest honor recently. Cassidy Jay and Heather Osowiecki received their Gold Award on Sunday, May 20, in a special ceremony at Tannery Pond Community Center. The Gold Award for Girl Scouts is equivalent to the Eagle Scout Award for Boy Scouts, and is truly a wonderful accomplishment and the culmination of many hours of work and planning. For their project, Cassidy and Heather renovated the back yard of the Levin House, a satellite center of North Country Outreach, into a Toddler's Garden. The Toddler's Garden will provide a safe, fun play area for young children, as well as a place where parents can meet together and visit the center. Many community volunteers contributed to the success of the project, and the girls gratefully acknowledged them at the ceremony. Kit Huggard and Donna Gelder, from the Adirondack Girl Scout Council, presented the girls with their awards and letters of congratulations from their school and town administration, Gov. Eliot Spitzer, state Sen. Betty Little, and Pres. George Bush. The North Creek Girl Scouts presented Cassidy and Heather a lifetime membership to Girl Scouts. The girls describe their project as a wonderful example of community members working together for the greater good, and would like to thank everyone who supported them.
