Girl Scouts boosting Easter spirit

Members of Girl Scout Troop #10925 of Fulton have been working hard on their Bronze Award. One thing they have been working on is getting donations for Madalyn & Evelyn’s Easter Spirit. 

This organization puts together Easter baskets for children in need throughout Oswego County. To do this, the Girl Scouts have decorated boxes and placed them around Fulton to collect donations of Easter items. This includes baskets, cellophane basket wrap, candy and basket fillers of all sorts. They are also making bracelets to put in the Easter baskets. 

Last year Madalyn & Evelyn’s Easter Spirit put together more than 400 baskets. Troop #10925 is hoping to help them with just as many baskets this year. There are boxes collecting items located at Off-Broadway Dance Center, Noah’s Nursery School, The Hair Hut and Devine Design Floral. The Bronze Award is the highest honor a junior Girl Scout can achieve.

The annual Good Friday Cross Walk, sponsored by the Greater Fulton Area Council of Christian Churches, will be at 10:30 a.m. Friday, April 18, in the parking lot of Holy Trinity Parish, 309 Buffalo St., Fulton.

Walkers will gather for prayer and the singing of hymns as they take turns carrying a large wooden cross in the downtown section of the city of Fulton.

The Cross Walk will conclude about noon at its final destination, First United Church of Fulton, 33 S. Third St.

Everyone who has taken part in the walk will be welcome to a Soup and Bread Luncheon provided by the Board of Deacons of First United Church.

Both the Cross Walk and luncheon are open to the general public. There is no cost for the luncheon.
