Girl Scout Silver Award Volleyball Court Renovation Update
The following excerpt is reprinted from the June 2021 JJ Pearce HOA newsletter:
My name is Jade and I am a 7th-grade Cadette Girl Scout working towards my Girl Scout Silver Award. Let me tell you a little bit about what a Girl Scout Silver Award is. The Silver Award is the highest honor a Cadette can achieve. The Silver Award in Girl Scouts is when Cadettes focus on an issue, learn the facts, take action and make a difference in their community. While doing it we gain confidence and skills that will lead us to long-term success. It brings the community together and helps people or places in need. It takes a great amount of time and dedication to complete it.
My friends and I visit the park pretty frequently, and hopefully, you
do too. You may have noticed the sand volleyball court needing a
little bit of work. Most of the preexisting sand has blown or just
washed away by rain and the outside lines have disappeared. For
my Silver Award, I will be updating the volleyball court. I will be
adding a drainage system, adding more sand, and installing a longlasting border around the court. With a drainage system in place,
we could prevent the court from filling up and creating a pool of
water. If we add more sand to the pit we will make it level and it will
actually cover the whole court. By updating and maintaining the
volleyball court it would be a more usable space. It would be a
more enjoyable place for families and kids to come. It is a great
place to go and have a picnic, play some soccer on the field, or play
a game of sand volleyball.
In order to make my Silver Award a success the NRB (Northwestern
Richardson Beautification nonprofit that maintains the JJP HOA
Park) needs to raise approximately $10,000 to support the work that
needs to be done.
Thank you all for coming to the Welcoming Spring Picnic, it was
such a great turnout! We had so much help and support there.
Thank you to everyone that volunteered their time and support, including the HOA board members and 10Pull. The NRB raised
over $1,100 from your contributions. What an amazing kick-off to their fundraising goal. Be on the lookout for future fundraising events in the park coming soon.
