Local Girl Scout making bracelets in quest for Gold Award

MEREDITH— Local senior, Elisabeth Hutchins is working on her achieving the Gold Award in Girl Scouts, which is the highest award award that Girl Scout Ambassadors can earn. To earn this award she is working with area teens to make hand knotted friendship bracelets that will be given to teen patients at local hospitals as a way of letting them know that someone their age is thinking about them and hoping they get well soon.

Hutchins began to develop this idea when she was working on her Bronze Award in Girl Scouts in 2009. During this time her troop made quilts and donated then to David's House at Children's Hospital of Dartmouth. Upon delivery, Hutchins saw how happy families were to receive the quilts and wanted to make a difference in the lives of the teens and preteens that were patients in area hospitals. Shortly after this experience Hutchins began taking on her bracelet making project, to benefit patients in the Lakes Region.

Laura Brusseau, a freshman social studies teacher at Inter-Lakes high school and former Gold Award recipient, requires her students to be involved with community service projects each quarter. After hearing about Hutchins charitable endeavors, Brusseau agreed to allow her students to help make the friendship bracelets as part of their community service hours. This collaboration between the two parties has helped them achieve community service hours, while simultaneously helped members of the community.

Area teens and preteens that would like to get involved with this project may contact Elisabeth at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
