We would like to nominate Brooklyn Severson, Geri Fredrickson, Makayla Saul, Gabriella Saul, and Trista Lay for the WEAU Sunshine Award.
These young women are members of Girl Scouts. Along with their leader, Theresa Fredrickson, they helped us remember the joy of scouting. We were served a delightful Finnish lunch of karelian pastries (a baked rye dough filled with rice or mashed potatoes) egg butter (Mr. Food would have said “Ooh, it’s so good!), tea, Arnold Palmer punch or coffee.
After lunch they performed a skit about Juliette Gordan Lowe, founder of Girl Scouts, and modeled several scout uniforms worn throughout the past 50 years.
This event was the culmination of our reading about Juliette G. Lowe as part of our book share. We focus on influential women who had/have contemporary ideas to support girls becoming strong women leaders.
We sincerely believe these young women (Brooklyn, Geri, Makayla, Gabrielle, and Trista) will follow in the footsteps of their sisters throughout history.
Thank you for having this award.
