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 Sarah Post

kiwi Hello, my name is Kiwi! I am a very friendly little lady. I came into the shelter as a stray that was slightly shy but still willing to make friends. I can't wait for my new furr-ever home. Do you have a nice couch and windows for me to enjoy? Since I can be shy, a lower-energy home would probably be best for me. If you have those, I will be your friend! I'm already spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date on my vaccinations. If I sound like your girl, please come in and take me home today!
