Girl Scouts Celebrate Renovation of Ballfield Restrooms

bgbrrc_120Lansing Girl Scout Troop 40086 held a a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Silver Award Presentation yesterday at the Lansing Ballfields Rest Rooms building.  The troop celebrated their renovation of the bathrooms.  Part of the project was making the bathrooms more accessible for disabled people.

"Amelia Massi, nancy Fish and and Bonnie Blair and the girls did a great job," says Park Superintendent Steve Colt.  "It was way overdue for a face lift.  Inside partitions have been put up, it's been painted.  New hand dryers were put in, mirrors, a drinking fountain outside, lights and a paver walkway, and a new garden at the end of the building.  The girls did a great job."

The scouts presented a plaque listing donors to the project and their own names to Colt.  A sign was placed in the garden that says it is dedicated to the W. Cook family.

The project fulfills the girls' requirements to earn the Silver scouting award.  Silver medals are earned in groups of two to four scouts.  The six scouts broke up into groups of three - one group for each bathroom -- to raise money and complete the restoration.  At the beginning of this month the scouts and their families planted a new garden in front of the building.

"So many people use that throughout the course of the year," Colt says.  It needed to be done.  And it looks good."

Pet of the Week

by Rochelle Davis

PMissy Bonjour, mes amis! I am Missy, and I am known to act like a queen. It seems to me the problem in my previous home was that I was not sufficiently appreciated for the magnificent feline I am - but that's neither here nor there. No, it WAS there! My human family consisted of a husband and wife and their son; I thought the guys were just dandy, but somewhat less the FEMALE! I very much appreciate being petted, not always to be picked up. I'm not nervous around men, but I've never lived with young children or babies. I've lived with other cats and a respectful dog, in case you were wondering, though the other female cat wasn't my favorite pal. So, are you the ruler of my next kingdom?
