For 12 years, Girl Scout Service Unit 582 of Isabella County has been giving baby items to the first baby girl born at McLaren Central Michigan on or after March 12, the anniversary of the Girl Scouts. The lucky recipient,
Lyric Marie LoPiccolo, was born March 12 weighing five pounds, six ounces, and measuring 17 3/4 inches long. Kyanne LoPiccolo, mother of Lyric and Mt. Pleasant resident, was very thankful for all the beautiful gifts which included clothing, diapers, blankets, toys, a special Girl Scout onesie, and Girl Scout cookies.
The service unit, which includes approximately 250 girls and leaders from 24 Isabella County troops, raised approximately $300 from cookie sales to purchase the items.
