Girl Scout Troop 3148 members earned their Bronze Award, the 3rd highest award in Girl Scouts USA. The Bronze Award project objective is to benefit the local community.

The Troop created three books of original, cheerful artwork to help patients pass the time during chemotherapy infusions. The books were donated to the Medical Oncology Associates of San Diego chemo lounge on June 5. Dr. Marie Shieh answered questions and accepted the books on behalf of the patients treated in her practice.
