Three dozen local Girl Scouts have earned the prestigious Gold Award, which will be presented to them at 4 p.m. on May 21 during ceremonies at Lanterman Auditorium. They include:
For Caitlin’s Gold Award project she refurbished the LCHS Football Food Booth. During the football season, she witnessed the condition of the booth during the time that PTSA parents volunteer and fundraise. When her troop began to talk about possible Gold Awards she knew she wanted to do something for the school she had attended since seventh grade. She chose the football food booth because she had volunteered to work there in the past and knew the food sold in the booth was PTSA’s largest fundraiser. Caitlin’s project consisted of cleaning the area, painting the interior walls and cabinets, removing old and failing roll down shutters, organizing funding and replacement of new roll down shutters and lining the cabinets with linoleum. A used refrigerator was donated and transported to the booth and Caitlin made arrangements with Southern California Edison to recycle the old refrigerator and have it removed from the school.
