Local Girl Scout Creates Born Learning Trail
Cassidy Brown, Girl Scout Troop 224, painted shapes, letters and hopscotch along the Capaha Park lake path both for her Silver Scouting award and to promote early learning. Her efforts became Cape’s first “Born Learning trail,” which officially opens Sept. 6 at 11 a.m. with extra activities at shelter #1. The City of Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation Department and United Way of Southeast Missouri’s Success by 6 – Born Learning initiative made this project possible.
Kudos to Cassidy Brown for volunteering her time to make Cape Girardeau an even better place to raise and educate young children!
