Photos of the Week
  












Girl Scout Ambassador Grace S. of Victor completed her Gold Award Take Action project in the fall.  With the help of other Girl Scouts and friends, she completed a 90-foot long bridge at the Mary Frances Bluebird Haven in Victor. On the right she demonstrates to younger girls how to use an electric drill. Grace created a video demonstrating how she put the bridge together.  The group also refreshed the area's trail markers. Watch Grace's video:
