Girl Scout Encounters

Lieutenant Marc Montanaro shows off his wish bracelet!

The Girl Scout Troop 71803 had a Community table at the 15th Annual Collinwood Waterloo Arts fest on June 24. They made wish bracelets, attracting the attention of Lieutenant Marc Montanaro, who stopped to make one. Two weeks later the Lieutenant walked up to the same troops’s  Girl Scout table at the 5th District Police Safety Fair.  He showed them he was still wearing his bracelet, awaiting his wish to come true. “How cool is that! Thank you, Lieutenant Montanaro – that’s awesome support!”- Anita Howard
