— The Girl Scout Brownie Troop 4546 earned their My Best Self Badge by visiting with the Sparta Eye Associates in their new location at 117 Sparta Ave., on April 30. The girls learned how eating healthy keeps your eyes healthy. Eye examinations beginning at a young age help to keep eyes healthy by correcting problems before they become bigger issues.

The girls were able to use and examine many of the office's instruments to get a better understanding how these tools work and why they are important during an eye exam. The My Best Self Badge teaches girls how to take the best care of themselves.
