Bellevue Girl Scout troop 51041 will hold a foster parent appreciation dinner for 80 families of Olive Crest Foster Agency Thursday, May 29 at Crossroads Bible church. The 6-8 p.m. dinner event will include a craft, dinner provided at the church, entertainment, decorations and a take-away gift.

The scouts, a troop of eight 9th grade girls, is hosting the event to earn their Silver Award, the second highest award a Girl Scout can earn. It involves 40 hours of planning, organizing and implementing a community service project.

Most of the girls have been in the troop together since kindergarten, “bridging” or graduating to each new level of scouts together. They do community service, learn about society and women in society and learn new skills.

They previously earned the Bronze Award in 2005.

The girls decided to plan an event for foster children and their families because they love working with kids, members say, and have done previous work with Olive Crest Foster Agency and had an interest in helping foster children.
