Westfield Girl Scout Troop 40490 would like to congratulate Betheny Swartz, Cate Durocher, Isabella Giacobbe and Olivia Paulino for earning their Silver Award. The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn and gives girls the chance to do big things and make their community better in the process.
Beginning in November 2018, the four Scouts formed an idea inspired by the Kindness Rocks Project on Instagram. The mission is to spread small messages of kindness to the public in an anonymous way. The group meet weekly to paint various rocks with messages of hope and happiness. They then distributed the artistic rocks all over Downtown Westfield NJ in the hopes of spreading cheer, inducing a smile, and inspiring others to be kind. The rocks have been noticed by everyone from kids, moms, and the local shops and restaurants in town.
They started an Instagram page, #kindnessrockswestfield.
Follow it, find a rock, and help to spread some kindness today in your hometown Westfield, NJ.
Betheny, Cate, Isabella and Olivia have put in collectively, over 200 hours in over 2 years and along with the all the Westfield Girl Scouts earning the Highest Awards, will be honored during a special scout ceremony.
Congratulations and thank you!
