Westfield Junior Girl Scouts Earn Simple Meals Badges
WESTFIELD — Girls from Westfield Junior Girl Scout Troop 20173 earned their Simple Meals badge while helping out a good cause.
“The girls had taken second place in the Cross Roads Chili Cook Off last year, so this year they were eager to beat that,” said leader Patty Bowen. “They couldn’t wait to make their chili and help the community.”
They did beat their previous record, earning first place for the People’s Choice at Cross Roads on Oct. 7. The money they raised benefits Westfield’s American Legion as it relocates to East Main Street.
“We are so proud of them,” said assistant leader Wendy Graham. “The girls even came to Cross Roads to help out that day.”
