Silver Award Spotlight: Building Blocks

Girl Scout Cadette Mackenzie earned her Silver Award by creating necessary tools for an equestrian center.

 North West River Park is known for camping, fishing, horseback riding, and more. However, they were in need of a mounting block for riders. Mounting blocks are steps that aid in mounting (getting on) a horse, and riders aren’t expected to bring their own.

 Mackenzie, with her amazing construction skills, took on their request for one. However, she surprised them with two! She delivered one in the trailer parking lot, for those who want to mount right away, and one at the riding ring, for those who like to lead their horses or need to remount.

 North West River Park loves their new mounting blocks, and it’s all thanks to Mackenzie! She went above and beyond with her talents and generosity. She definitely earned her Silver Award!

 Through this experience, Mackenzie learned skills in construction and power tool safety to help out a local park and community.

 Great job, Mackenzie!
