Girl Scouts Celebrate Renovation of Ballfield Restrooms

Jun202014
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

Eeyore Eeyore has been with us since the end of January. He was rescued from a hoarding situation, so living in a real home with humans was a whole new experience for him. He is a sweet, playful little guy that has lots of energy. He is frightened of strangers but improving, learning that most of the people who come around have treats for him. His housebreaking is almost complete, but he is still afraid of being on a leash, so his ideal home would have a fenced yard or be on a safe, rural property where he can accompany you without a leash. He likes dogs (the bigger the better!), confident cats and horses. Once he knows and trusts you, he loves belly rubs and sitting on the back of the couch to snuggle.  If you have a quiet home and the patience to help Eeyore learn about the world at his pace, contact his foster mom at This email address is being protected from spambots.
