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 Ashley Fleming

Eeyore Eeyore was rescued from an out of county hoarding case and had very little human interaction in his first couple years of life. He was put into a foster home to receive a little extra TLC and to avoid having him wait for his forever home in the shelter. While he was very nervous and scared at first, he is adjusting well and his playful personality has quickly emerged. Eeyore enjoys following his foster mom (and the other dogs and cat) around the house and wants to be included in whatever is going on. He is housetrained, but a little hesitant to go outside on his own. A fenced yard would be ideal in his new home so that he can race around and play. While at first he wasn’t too comfortable being pet and quick movements frightened him, he has improved and does allow his foster mom to pet him and scratch his back while they watch TV. Any adopter would get great satisfaction out of bringing this little guy even further out of his shell. If you’re up for the challenge and willing to help Eeyore reach his full potential, contact the SPCA adoption staff at 607-257-1822 ext. 221 to set up a time to meet him!
