Girl Scouts knit scarves for hospital
The Nine fifth-grade girls in Girl Scout Troop 1421 from St. Thomas More Parish in Centennial recently earned the highest honor a Junior Girl Scout can achieve: the Bronze Award.
Under the guidance of troop leader Natalie Crowe, the girls learned how to knit, then made and donated 28 scarves to Sky Ridge Medical Center in Lone Tree to be used by patients at the Sky Ridge Cancer Center.
To accomplish the project “Knitting for the Needy,” each Girl Scout collected yarn from their families and school communities and knitted at least 20 hours over a period of six months.
The scarves were delivered to the hospital May 10 by troop members Sarah Carter, Natalie Christiansen, Kathryn Clemens, Renee Crowe, Claudia Lemire, Amelia Moenster, Grace Oswald, Morgan Schaaf and Brooke Washburn.
