This Sunday, June 9th, I went to Hornets Nest Council and presented my project to them. After moments of deliberation, they came back into the room to hand me the Gold Award. Through all the ups and downs of the project, I anticipated the moment when the golden pin would be latched securely on my vest, but I don’t think I realized how meaningful the event itself would be.
When my mom finished placing the pin on my khaki vest, I thought about all the moments that led up to it and all the people that helped me. Thank you to everyone who played a part in my project, from the blog viewer in Canada that helped my efforts reach around the globe to the troop member who planted the seeds that thrived in the garden. The garden looks incredible these days, and without your efforts, the project would have been impossible, so thank you very much!
