Future Girl Scout born at Brooks Memorial Hospital
The Chadwick Bay Service Unit of the Girl Scouts of the USA, troops 20258 and 20010 comprising Dunkirk, Brocton, Fredonia and Cassadaga, presented a very special gift to the first baby girl born at Brooks-TLC Hospital System, Inc. October 31. Every year, Girl Scouts around the world honor the memory of their founder, Juliette Gordon Low, on her birthday, October 31.
Isabella Mariah Morales was born at the Brooks campus, October 31, 2019 at 5:15 p.m., weighing 7 lbs. 15 oz., to proud parents Danielle Gugino and Max Morales. The new parents were pleasantly surprised to learn that the Girl Scouts had a Girl Power basket waiting for them, filled with “future Girl Scout” baby items and more.
The fourth and fifth grade junior level troops, led by Kathy Reisenweber, Desiree Clarke and Rosemarie Zollinger, often work together, particularly for important traditions such as their founder’s birthday celebration.
Scouts, Kaitlyn Coon (pictured front left) and Shelby Reisenweber (pictured front right) will complete some of the requirements for their Girl Scout Way badge, which demonstrates they know how to use the Girl Scout traditions to make the world a better place. Of the overall experience, Shelby shares, “Girl Scouts is fun”, while her friend, Kaitlyn added, “Girl Scouts is busy but I like it.”
The Brooks-TLC Hospital System, Inc. Obstetrics Department often receives gifts from local individuals and community organizations to be shared with new parents. The next scheduled celebration is Baby New Year, a local tradition that provides an assortment of gifts and services to the parents of the first baby born at the hospital in 2020.
