INDIAN RIVER COUTNY -
On Sept. 11, Brownie Troop 50102 of Sebastian celebrated civil servant appreciation day by delivering pizzas and chicken wings to Fire Station 3 in Vero Beach.
The food, donated by Tim Lopez, owner of TJ's NY Style Pizza located on 512 in Sebastian, was a way to honor and appreciate firefighters for all they do every day in the community.
The second and third graders were given a tour of the fire station by the six on-duty firefighters and they answered questions the troop had about their duties, types of calls they handle and about their equipment. On the tour, the girls were able to climb aboard a fire truck and look at all of the gadgets.
Brownie Troop 50102, which is led by Abby Lefebure, Denae Linnartz, Stacey Ford and Susan Waller, is comprised of 14 second and third graders and was formed in October 2010 and meets twice monthly.
Brownies is the next step for the troop in a lifetime Girl Scouts adventure. The girls meet in groups of five to 15 with two or more adult leaders in a nurturing, inclusive environment. They go on trips, learn about nature and science, and explore the arts and their communities.
