ALPENA, Mich. — Local Girl Scouts gathered at St. Paul Lutheran church to show off their main project promoting peace commemorating international peace day. Each year the Girl Scouts decide on a project they want to complete and this year they decided on a peace book. This project won them a silver award issued by the state of Michigan.
The book was put together for the Alpena Peace Coalition and includes input from the community about what peace means to them. The girls are hoping that the tips provided in the book will inspire change in the community.
