Girl Scout troops from Sebring and Lake Placid prepared and served a spaghetti dinner to the 12 college students who dedicated their winter break to helping others with Habitat For Humanity projects and a special work day at Highlands Hammock State Park.
The special dinner was Thursday at the Girl Scout House in Sebring.
The two troops donated food, soft drinks and decorations to transform the log cabin into an Italian eatery. Lake Placid’s Troop 819 decorated place-mats, which the college students took back to school.
Daisy Troop 201 prepared and served the pasta and meatballs, garlic bread, salads and desserts.
The college students said they were grateful for the filling meal after a day of landscaping a home in readiness for its new owners.
The students that were honored were from Case Western Reserve University. Also honored were the Care-a-Vanners who help to organize the week long winter break alternative project. The young nursing, premed and engineering students were touched by the Girl Scouts thoughtfulness and performed, a cappella, Habitat for Humanity’s theme song as a way of thanking everyone.
