To celebrate 100 years of girl scouting, 49,000 Girl Scouts in 49 counties in the Minnesota and Wisconsin River valleys participated in their final centennial year event on Saturday, Oct. 13. It was called the “Centennial Day of Service: 2012 Take Action Project.” Their goal was to raise awareness about simple steps that everyone can take to improve local water quality.

For their part, 65 Braham Girl Scouts, volunteers and family members joined forces with the Kanabec Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) board supervisors. The scouts raked leaves at public boat accesses on Quamba Lake, Lewis Lake and Fish Lake.
