Junior Girl Scout Troop 739 from Paradise Canyon Elementary has been busy this summer building, painting and decorating a 700 lb., 4-foot by 6-foot wooden playhouse. The project, which has been named "operation playhouse," is the result of the girl's desire to earn their Bronze Award, the highest award at the Junior Girl Scout level. As a requirement for this award, the troop had to choose a project which gives back to the community. After the girls complete the playhouse it will be raffled off next month and the proceeds of the raffle money will be donated to "Make A Wish Foundation" to help make a child's wish come true.
