Monique Desrochers has completed her “Smiles for Soldiers” Girl Scout Silver Award project, the highest achievement for a Cadette-level scout.
  
Monique delivered a container holding over 1000 all occasion cards to spread a “Ray of Sunshine” to the Providence VA Medical Center.  She was inspired by this project through a friend who works at the VA plus both of her grandfathers served in World War II.  She wanted to express her appreciation to the veterans for their service and bravery, and for our freedom.

The success of Monique’s 65+ hour community service project was made possible with the assistance of all the girl scouts from the GSRI North Attleboro troops, classmates from Saint Mary’s Sacred Heart School, and attendees at the Community School “Hometown Hero’s” book fair. 

“This experience has taught me that many hands make light work”. “We accomplished an amazing amount of cards and I am grateful that everything worked out smoothly”.  “It feels good knowing that our cards may bring “Smiles for Soldiers”, she said.

Monique would like to thank her advisor Mrs. Anne Mirza, all of the Girl Scout Leaders and their troops in North Attleboro, classmates, and attendees for supporting her throughout this wonderful project.
