Local Girl Scout troops joined girls from across the nation who made their way to San Francisco on May 9 to take part in the annual “bridging ceremony.”
According to the Girl Scouts website, bridging is an important transition in a Girl Scout’s life when a girl becomes aware of her achievements and is ready for new adventures and responsibilities. La Crescenta Junior Troop 977 made the trek to participate in the 28th Girl Scout Golden Gate Bridge Crossing. This event was the largest bridge crossing in the history of Girl Scouts with about 8,095 people involved in the ceremony. Over 7,300 were Scouts and their adult supporters who came from around the nation, including Washington, Oregon, Idaho, New Jersey, Ohio, Nevada and Connecticut.
Now back home, Troop 977 is committed to continuing its community projects, including La Crescenta’s Adopt a Tree program, while working to achieve its Silver Award.
Troop leaders are Marylu Issaevitch and Louise Mitchell. Girls are Anna Steele, Morgan Beck, Toni Issaevitch, Maddy Bin, Shelly Mitchell, Soli Jones, Katherine and Monica Nolte, and Olivia Harper. These girls have bridged to Cadettes during this Scout year.
