Story submitted by Joyce Kasnyik: Troop #50774 from the Quarrystone Service Unit held a World Thinking Day celebration for 19 troops at Camp Timberlane. Since the theme this year was "Together we can help end extreme hunger and poverty," all troops entered the program with canned goods for Harvest for Hunger and nickels collected the past two months by doing a good turn daily.
The Quarrystone Service Unit collected $160 in nickels which will be used to buy a sheep, a flock of geese/ducks and a share of a llama through Heifer International which will be given to a community in a poor nation.
The girls were able to attend 3 presentations during the afternoon which included an informative movie and talk from Robin, an Oberlin College senior who spent a month inAfghanistan, Miss Saberina from the Second Harvest Food Bank, who did an activity which explained having a budget and how some families do not have enough money to buy groceries.
The girls then took part in a "hunger banquet" where they had tiers of income in which they were offered crackers and water, cookies and water or ice cream sundaes and punch.
In the end, everyone shared and all enjoyed ice cream sundaes but not without understanding that those that have should share and not judge those that have-not. The afternoon ended with a skit performed by troop 50774 which was interactive to remind the rest of the girls that they need to help feed the children and donate their money whenever they can.
It was a fun, educational day at Camp Timberlane. We made our spare change help make a change and supplied food for those that desperately need it here in LorainCounty. A job well-done by troop 50774!
