For Silver Award, Scouts plan to attract butterflies

(ran EO edition)

Cadette Girl Scout Troops 1070 and 831 are planning to create a butterfly garden as part of their Silver Award project. To make this project happen, the girls need soil, horse manure, mulch, plants meant to attract butterflies and gardening tools. Monetary donations are also appreciated. Donors can drop money in a money jar on a counter inside the East Lake Community Library.

Janine Young, a troop leader, said it takes about 100 hours of effort for a girl to get a Silver Award. It is the highest honor a Scout in grades six, seven, eight and nine can earn. The butterfly garden project is just one of many the girls have planned to achieve the Silver Award.

Planting will take place June 4.

If you would like to donate materials, call Barbara Frett at (727) 785-6440 for more information.

15 students commended for their good qualities

The students all have the same qualities: good attitude, behavior, citizenship, commitment to their work and a willingness to serve their communities.

For that, a group of 15 East Lake High School students was honored by principal Rick Misenti during the final 1999-2000 Principal's Brunch on May 11.

Selected by the faculty were Maurice Andrews, Jessica Barbar, Philip Benjamin, Rollie Blake, Michelle Cassal, Kathryn Croyle, Rachel Graham, John Greis, Jenna Kemp, Carole Nease, Brian Peluso, Jarod Prior, Greg Stulic, Lindsay Traver and Kelly Walker.

The brunch was sponsored by the East Lake Oldsmar Rotary Club.
