PR Stars: Girl Scouts Build Bluebird Houses


Girl Scout Cadette Troop 20384 with leaders Elisha Perez and Carla Gunderson worked with the Lions Club to build and mount bluebird houses for a Loudon City Park.

LionGerry Knepp assisted the girls in his Tellico Village workshop as they built the bluebird houses. He showed them how to use the tools and explained that by using cedar the houses would last longer.

”This was a great experience in collaboration between several community minded organizations, and it benefited the environment!” Said Gail Yook, the region’s service unit manager for troops. “The Parks and Recreation Department was very appreciative. The girls learned facts about bluebirds, they experienced using woodworking tools, and they completed a community service project.”
