Tomahawk Girl Scouts take part in variety of projects

For the Tomahawk Leader

TOMAHAWK – Tomahawk Girl Scouts have taken part in a variety of projects over the last several months.

In May, Tomahawk Girl Scout Katelyn Austin received the Girl Scout Silver Award, the second-highest award a Cadette can earn. Austin was honored for her project focused on creating a map, brochure and signage for the trails behind the Tomahawk school complex.

Tomahawk High School senior and Girl Scout Genevieve Gleisner’s “Take Action” project involved creating first aid kits for seniors and providing a presentation at the Tomahawk Senior Center.


As part of a community service project, Cadette Scouts made walker bags and delivered them to area seniors. The Scouts worked with Cindy, formerly of Tomahawk Sew & Vac, making more than a dozen bags and presenting them to the Tomahawk Area Interfaith Volunteers (TAIV) to be distributed to clients.
