Fremont Girl Scout Will Present Concert As Gold Award Final Project

UPDATE:  Due to last weekend’s blizzard conditions, this event has been rescheduled for Saturday, March 2nd. Time and location remain 7PM to 9PM at Milady Coffeehouse in downtown Fremont.

FREMONT – Recently, several Boy Scouts finished their Eagle Scout projects and were awarded the highest honor for their achievements, the Eagle Scout award.  This Saturday, Ashley Staver, a senior at Fremont High School, will finish her own final project so she can receive the highest honor in the Girl Scout ranks: the coveted Gold Award.

Ashley has been a Girl Scout for 12 years and will present her final project this coming Saturday, at the Milady Coffeehouse: a concert, from 7 to 9 pm, featuring local artists. A free will offering will be collected at the door, with proceeds from the concert to go to Life Choices, a pro-life pregnancy resource center located in Fremont.

“There are seven steps to achieveing your Gold Award, said Ashley, “Including 80 hours of preparation time.”  Ashley started working on this final project a year and a half ago, and says she’s learned a lot through the process, especially leadership. “I think that’s pretty important, because it shows that not only can you lead, but you can lead when no one’s watching – with integrity.”

Again, the concert is Saturday night from 7 to 9 at the Milady Coffeehouse in downtown Fremont.  The public is invited.
