WARRENSBURG - While Ambassador Girl Scouts in Warrensburg are tackling leadership and community service work this spring, the younger local Cadet Scouts are finishing up constructing a display case for the local high school library.
The Cadet Scouts of Troop 3146 have been working for months on this finely fashioned wooden case, crafted under the guidance of Warrensburg High School technology teacher Brent Bertrand.
The girls said last week they'll be happy to see a product of their work as a permanent fixture at the school.
The Ambassador Scouts of Troop 3226 are working toward their individual Gold awards, Scout Randi Chancey said.
"I like helping others out in the community," she said.
The younger scouts are learning advanced babysitting skills as well as taking a crime scene investigation course.
Four of the scouts are headed for Bermuda, a trip that will blend educational experiences with recreational activities.
"It will be fun swimming with the dolphins," Randi said.
Girl scouting in Warrensburg not only means new, exciting experiences and fellowship, but a world of meaningful achievement, Kate Taddeo said. She and Randi have been in scouting together since the first grade.
"You learn a lot of helpful life skills," Kate said, "and you get to hang out with your friends.
"As you get older, you get more out of scouting," she said.
