Local Girl Scouts go for the gold


Falzon worked with the kindergarten class at Deposit Central School and taught them all about music. Falzon said she learned a lot from her project including public speaking, planning and organization and responsibility. She is a senior at Deposit Central School.

Also recognized were several Girl Scouts from the Binghamton area who earned the Silver Award, which is the highest award Girl Scouts in sixth through eighth grades can earn; and many local Girl Scouts earning the Bronze Award.
