Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — • Attention, Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts of all ages and levels. Did you know there are fantastic awards bringing our young people closer to our Lord, their communities and family? Sue Vermeulen is a counselor for the eight Catholic Religious Awards but could guide scouts of any faith to find counselors and materials to attain the awards. From eight counties in WNY they have about 70 Boy Scouts and only two or three Girl Scouts receive awards annually. Let Sue help your scouts learn about the programs. Call her at 778-8887.
