Girl Scouts receive Spirit of Appreciation Award

Girls from three Girl Scout troops were presented the 2015 Spirit of Appreciation Award by the Arbutus Park Senior Spirit Awards Committee at a special luncheon at The Conference Center, University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown.

The Girl Scouts were honored for creating “Generation Mingle” events at Arbutus Park Retirement Community. At the monthly events, girls and residents make wreaths and quilts together, put on fashion shows and play games together. Residents look forward to seeing the girls each month, especially those who don’t receive many visitors. As a result, special friendships and bonds have formed between the residents and Girl Scouts.

Lois Pudliner, Girl Scout volunteer and Arbutus staff member, nominated the Girl Scouts in appreciation of their time and commitment to serving others.
