Local Girl Scouts Donate to Arc

AndoveGirlScoutProjectr/Wellsville Girl Scouts Sara French, Fiona Brown and Desirae Raczek made bird houses, bird feeders and wooden benches that were recently donated to Allegany Arc. Na’Kaiha Dieter helped with delivering the items. Kaiha also spent many hours in the fields at Witkowski picking rocks, raking, pruning trails and assisting with the raised gardens and working towards creating nature signs on wooden stakes for visitors to read.

Sarah is in seventh grade at Andover Central School. She has been a Girl Scout for three years and hopes to be an artist when she gets older.

Fiona is in ninth grade at Andover Central School. She has been a Girl Scout for nine years. Her favorite part of being a Girl Scout is camping with her friends and traveling as a group.

Desirae is in tenth grade at Alfred-Almond Central School and has been a Girl Scout for two years.

Na’Kaiha is in ninth grade at Wellsville Central School and has been a Girl Scout for seven years. She wants to be a Kindergarten teacher one day. Her favorite part of being a Girl Scout is camping, helping in the community, selling cookies, fundraising, and making new friends.

Na’Kaiha’s Mom Angie Dieter works at Allegany Arc as a Community Services Support Specialist and is a volunteer with the Girl Scouts. Angie is so proud of the work the girls have done. She said all of the girls live by the Girl Scout Law and she sees in them every day, they are making the world a better place.

A few years ago Allegany Arc purchased 65 acres surrounding its PWI facility on the Andover Road, Wellsville and created a 5-10 year development plan (Witkowski Project) for the property; ultimately creating an inclusive outdoor space for everyone to enjoy. Year one of the project included the construction of a pavilion, picnic tables and grills.

The Girl Scouts hav
e done a lot of work at Witkowski and their efforts are deeply appreciated.
