Girl Scouts honor local veterans

INDIAN LAKE - On Nov. 11, Veterans Day, Indian Lake Daisy troop #3454 and Brownie troop #3289 expressed their thanks to local veterans.

Along with the American Legion Parker-Benton Post, the Girl Scouts visited Cedar River Cemetery on the 11th hour and minute to the tune of Taps. Every year the American Legion members of Indian Lake make appearances at all of the cemeteries in Indian Lake and Blue Mountain Lake.

This year, the Girl Scouts joined them along with participating in several other acts of thanks. Each member mailed thank you cards to veterans.

"The girls wanted to commemorate the sacrifices of veterans of all the wars in American history and to thank our veterans for their service to our country," said Brownie leader Shelly Oliver.

Before visiting the cemetery, the Girl Scouts created treat bags and wrapped them with tags saying, "Thank you for keeping America free, from a kid who cares." The bags were distributed at the Indian Lake American Legion.

Daisy troop members who participated were Emily Deshaw, Kylie Cannan, Arianna Kullman and Natalie Puterko with their leaders Michelle Deshaw and Jackie Fish.

Brownie troop members who participated were Kristina Oliver, Callahan Roberts, Shelby Benton, Alexandrea Campbell, Shauna Arsenault, Lauren Johnson and Mattalyn Braunius with leaders Elizabeth Noonan and Shelly Oliver.
