Esko Scouts take a stand on crosswalks
Thomson Township supervisors approve letter of support for initiative
January 15, 2021
Three Esko Girl Scouts are hoping to make the world a safer place for pedestrians, starting in their own backyard.
Annika Halvorson, Claire Fontaine and Carli Bloom, along with Troop 4079 leaders Sybil Halvorson and Joe Fontaine, reached out to the Thomson Township Board of Supervisors in a letter last week, asking for the board's support to make two particular crosswalks safer. Esko and Thomson Township as a whole are active places, the scouts said, "with people of all ages out walking, running and riding bikes many months of the year, not to mention children that walk home from school."
