Fleetwood Girl Scout Troop 1684 recently visited the Berks Animal Rescue League in Cumru Township as part of their work on their Animal Helpers badge. They visited all the animals, discussed the hard work done by the staff and volunteers and learned how they can help the league through their volunteer program.

While there, they were able to name one of the animals up for adoption. This little guy in the picture is now named “Star”. And although the name was drawn out of a hat, it is appropriate since Troop 1684 has chosen the Shooting Star as their troop crest. According to the GS Cadette handbook, ‘Shooting stars are rare, unexpected, and beautiful. Choosing this symbol shows that these girls are like shooting stars -- a team that lights up the world.’
