Girls scouts earn Silver Award for Lyme prevention

Ridgefield scouts Lucy Briody, Allie Caruso, Juliana Waite and Lauren Ahearn from troop 50657 earned their Girl Scout Silver award for educating the public on Lyme disease prevention, working under the auspices of the Ridgefield Health Department, directed by Jennifer Reid, program coordinator of BLAST. Troop leader Terese Waite encouraged the girls to focus on Lyme disease because of a troop members personal experience. Educating children at the Boys & Girls Club, Parks and Recreation summer camp counselors, and Kid Fest attendees were just a few of their many activities.
