Alabama Celebrity Dog Wash for Girl Scout Bronze Award

In Alabama, Junior Girl Scout Troop 20 of Limestone County has been working since August toward a community project to help the canine members of their community and earn the Girl Scouts Bronze Award. The News Courier reports that the 11-member troop, based out of Athens Bible School hosted a Celebrity Dog Was to raise pet food for Peace, Love, and Animals, a no-kill shelter.

The Celebrity Dog Wash featured country music artist Cristina Lynn and radio personality Flyin’ Brian of WSLV 1110 AM radio as dog washers. Participants enjoyed a demonstration by the Limestone Correctional Facilities’ K-9 unit. Troop 20 also hosted a bake sale and silent auction. Items auctioned included: an autographed football from Philip Rivers, quarterback for the San Diego Chargers and former Athens High School quarterback; autographed football from Auburn University football coach Gene Chizik; autographed football from former Florida State University football coach Bobby Bowden; an original sketch by syndicated cartoonist and Alabama native Bill Holbrook; and an original drawing collage of former Auburn University quarterback Cam Newton by artist Nathan Simpson; paintings by local artist Woody Woodard.

The Girl Scouts Bronze Award is the highest award a Junior Girl Scout can earn. Do you have any Girl Scout Bronze Award stories to share?
