Local Girl Scouts to Have Vigil at Bridge Park Saturday November 10th
Girl Scouts from Calhoun County will be participating in a vigil as part of a Nationwide Vigil and Service project to honor the memory of three Girls Scouts and Troop Leader killed in Wisconsin.
Members of Troop 3055 tragically lost their lives last Saturday in Lake Hallie, Wisconsin, while doing a service project along their adopted area of a road.
Girl Scouts will meet at the Historic Bridge Park at 14930 Wattles in Battle Creek, at 3:30 p.m. and spend time to clean up the park. The Nationwide Vigil begins at 4:00 p.m. Mindi Hommerding, Children’s Ministry Pastor from the Battle Creek First Assembly will lead the reflection and moment of silence. Elisha Hodge, owner of Plumeria Botanical Boutique has donated Daisies (the Girl Scout flower) to release after the event. All Girl Scouts, former Scouts, and friends of Scouting, are invited. For more information, you can contact Denise Demarest. Please be aware that the restrooms are closed for the winter at the park.
21 year old Colten Treu sped off after the collision last Saturday but later surrendered. Lake Hallie, Wisconsin, police said Treu and a passenger in the pickup truck both told investigators they had intentionally been inhaling chemical vapors just prior to the crash.
