Roanoke Girl Scout Lilyanna Alexander (kneeling) prepares a bald cypress tree seedling for packaging as fellow scouts (from left) Samantha Smith, Jesa Kummer and Sarah Dearduff assist in the effort. Members of Roanoke Girl Scout Troop 20305 gave away bald cypress trees and information about environmentally friendly cleaning products on Saturday, May 18, during Springtime in the Village in downtown Roanoke. The project was designed to help the Scouts earn the Silver Award, which requires recipients to complete a sustainable project.
