Scout's project focused on farm life

Spiral-bound coloring books for sale at the Carroll County Farm Museum gift shop are part of the Girl Scout Gold Award project of Rosalyn Moynihan, of Silver Run.

Her project's theme was "What We Can Learn from Our Farming History."


She created coloring books for the farm museum after soliciting artwork from local artists and other artists outside the community.

"The art is from everywhere. It's a really cute coloring book," said Dottie Freeman, park superintendent, Carroll County Farm Museum. "She did a great job."


Freeman said proceeds from the sale of the coloring books go to the Patrons Endowment Fund to benefit improvements to the museum.

Moynihan also developed and led a program at the Carroll County Public Library. Her "Down on the Farm" story time for children and their families introduced information about farm life through stories and crafts.

Moynihan, 19, said she felt her project helped children learn about the history of farming and relate it to today, and she discovered she enjoys teaching children and helping her community.

She received her Girl Scout Gold Award April 15 in Annapolis.

Moynihan is a Juliette Scout and has been involved in Girl Scouting for 13 years.

She is a biology student at Salisbury University, and the daughter of Robert and Janet Moynihan.
