PARIS — The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the third highest award in Girls Scouts of the USA and can only be earned at the Junior Scout level. The Bronze Award requires a minimum of 20 hours to be used for planning, preparing, and carrying out a community project. For Emily McAllister and Ila Curtis, both being animal lovers, the idea for a project came quite easy. They decided to help Responsible Pet Care, a local animal shelter in Paris. Using 15 tank tops donated to their troop, both girls made pet beds with them. They also collected from three local Girl Scout troops items needed for the cats and dogs at the shelter. Together, the two Junior Scouts delivered the 15 pet beds and over 50 donated items to Responsible Pet Care on Saturday, May 28. Both Scouts are thankful to all those who helped with the project. They earned their Bronze Award pin at the end of the year closing ceremonies on Wednesday, June 8.
