PEMBROKE — Outside of Pembroke Jr./Sr. High School is a “Sensory Park.”
A music wall, a sensory wall, a bench and a sensory garden all make up the Sensory Park, put together by freshmen Hannah Beach and Lilly Senko. The two girls, part of Girl Scout Troop 42025, put 53 hours into the park for their Silver Award.
“We got this idea from Pinterest and I knew I wanted to help kids with autism and that needed a break at times,” Beach said.
The Silver Award is one of the highest awards in Girl Scouting. It’s a 50 hour project where they find an issue they care about and make a difference in their community. Both of them are now working on their Girl Scout Gold Award.
The girls presented the sensory garden to school officials.
