Many adults may not know what that is, but Lilly did then and it is still her dream. She began her interest of space while watching a video in that 1st grade classroom and the draw to the stars has remained strong. She says it's because "out of all the planets, we're the only one with living humans on it".

Chardon Brownie Helps Hospitalized Children Color Rainbows

25 May 2018

How can a child color a rainbow without a peppy orange, a pretty pink or a vibrant violet? When Chardon Girl Scout Troop 71192 Brownie Ella Tryon was hospitalized in July 2016 she faced that dilemma. “I’m at Rainbow [Babies and Children’s] Hospital and I can’t color a rainbow,” she told her mother, Jaclyn, who searched high and low for a box of crayons before retreating to the hospital gift shop to purchase a pack. Jaclyn explains that her pursuit led to her discovery that hospitals, to avoid cross-contamination, don’t keep used crayons on hand. That did not sit well with Ella, who wanted all young hospital patients to have a fresh box of crayons to call their own, to color a rainbow, a dinosaur or any doodad they desire.
