At Groveport City Council’s June 13 meeting, Mayor Lance Westcamp presented Girl Scout Veronica Bumgardner with a proclamation recognizing her community service. Her work includes: a literacy project at the Southeast Branch of the Columbus Library (which earned her the Girl Scout Bronze Award); painting large board games and hopscotch at a playground to encourage kids to get exercise by going outside to play (which earned her the Girl Scout Silver Award); and her Groveport Sustainability project where she collected 1,000 pounds of plastic caps and lids from the community that were recycled and remade into five benches in which three were placed in the Elmont subdivision, one at Groveport Elementary, and one on the Foor Leisure Path (which earned her the Girl Scout Gold Award). “I commend Veronica Bumgardner for her dedication to champion those she can help and her leadership of teaching the importance of recycling properly,” read Westcamp in the proclamation.
