Geneva Girl Scouts and their families from Service Unit 409 (part of the Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways (GSNYPENN) council) participated in a day of service at Finger Lakes Community College Geneva Campus Center on September 20.
The Service Unit hosted “Chalk It Up!” and took over the blacktop in the campus’s parking lot circle. Girls and their families left inspiring and encouraging messages for the community. Nine families from a few different troops took part.
“It was fun to be with friends and put inspirational quotes out for people to see. Hopefully, some of the art made people smile,” says Abby Gravitte, a Girl Scout Cadette and 7th grader from Troop 40280.
Karina Connolly, Communications Co-Manager for the Service Unit, shared that watching the girls see their friends in-person again was heartwarming.
“They loved seeing each other, even if they couldn’t get too close. They had a great time being outdoors with some music and their friends. There were several adorable impromptu dance parties while they were drawing. We were able to work our way around the entire blacktop circle, which made me very happy,” says Connolly.
