Bridget Pickford Earns Girl Scout Silver By Thinking Of Others

Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta and Girl Scout Cadette Bridget Pickford are pictured at Memorial Park in Kings Park next to the accessible swing.(Smithtown, NY)…Suffolk County Legislator Robert Trotta recently met with Bridget Pickford of Kings Park who earned her Girl Scouts of Suffolk County Silver Award. To achieve the Silver Award, the highest honor a Girl Scout Cadette can attain, a scout must complete a Cadette Journey and fifty hours of service dedicated to creating a sustainable project that will improve a community.

Bridget is a frequent visitor to the Memorial Park in Kings Park and noticed that there was no accessible swing for children with disabilities. Therefore, she decided that she would do something to make the park a play area to include children with disabilities. Bridget raised the necessary funds to purchase an accessible swing and worked with the Town of Smithtown Parks Department to have it properly installed. 

 “I commend Bridget for pursuing this project especially as this year marks the 25 anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Bridget’s accomplishments exemplify the values of leadership, character and service that are inherent in the Girl Scouts and I congratulate her, her parents and scout leaders,” said Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta.
