La Jolla troop pitches in for pets

To fulfill the final requirement for earning their Bronze Award, La Jolla Girl Scout Troop 3377 hosted a movie event for other local Scouts and Campfire friends along with a collection drive this past weekend.

The Troop members chose La Jolla-based SNAP (Spay Neuter Action Project) as the recipient of their community project.

The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest award that a Junior Girl Scout can earn. The award represents a girl’s achievements in working to enrich her life and the lives of others in the community. To receive the award, each Girl Scout member must complete at least 15 hours of work on a community project.

More than 100 La Jolla Girl Scouts and their leaders attended the event, at which the girls toured SNAP’s Neuter Scooter, learned about pet over-population and what they can do to help and saw the movie How to Train Your Dragon and had a wonderful scouting experience together.

Troop 3377 asked each girl who attended the movie event to bring a dog or cat toy, dog or cat food, or a new or used towel to donate to SNAP.

Marie Harrington, 3377 troop leader, said, “I’m so proud of all these girls.”

The girls of La Jolla Troop 3377 are Annalise Bentley, Celeste Magaudda, Ellie Trevyllen, Emma Washkowiak, Jenna Agbulos, Jordan Haas, Katherine Gillcrist, Lindsey Gartner, Lucy Jensen, Mina Lally, Natalie Roddy, Rachel El-Jof, Samantha Poole, Sara Barton, Sara Tyrus, Shelby Kowalke, Star Austin and Sydney Brown.
