Donnelly said the Girl Scouts in the troop and adult volunteers made the project a success with their dedication to the cause.

For the Girl Scout Bronze Award, it is suggested a minimum of 20 hours of building a team, exploring the community, choosing a project, planning it, putting a plan in motion, and spreading the word about the project.

The Girls Scouts say the suggested hours help participants think about their commitment to doing their very best with each step. Courage, confidence, and character are all important factors in receiving a Bronze Award.
