Congratulations to Abigail Brown of Girl Scout Troop 2669 in Forsyth County for completing her Girl Scout Silver Award. Abigail worked with Alzheimer’s patients to help their motor skills. She researched the idea of busy boards for children and toddlers that could also benefit adult patients. Along with the board, she designed and created small hand pillows, similar to a security blanket for the patients to hold onto. Abigail was able to spread awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and also work on her public speaking skills to help further her leadership skills!
