Because water quality will be a defining issue of my generation, I focused my Girl Scout Gold Award project on the water quality of the stream stretching from Cherry Canyon to Hahamongna Park. As a Girl Scout in Troop 989, I tested for six different pollutants and spent many days throughout the year slogging out debris in this stream It’s hard to imagine that in our beautiful La Cañada foothills, trash and other pollutants lurk in the streams. The trash that people have carelessly tossed aside shares the same water as ducks, frog, fish and a rich variety of other species.

They include: Caitlin Adams 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.

On Sunday during a ceremony at Lanterman Auditorium, 40 local Girl Scouts received the Gold Award, the highest honor awarded in the Girl Scout program. For many of the teens it was the pinnacle of community service that began when they first put on their Daisy Scout blue apron as a kindergartner. To receive the Gold Award, girls must choose a philanthropic project that fulfills the need within their community, rather global or local, and creates a change. They must plan the project, contact the agency or agencies involved and follow through with logistics and organization.
