BANGOR, Maine— The Warren Center for Communication and Learning had visitors recently. Daisy Scout Troop 147 of Bangor donated money to buy a Fisher Price Little People Animal Sounds Farm for the center in honor of Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low.
“Low suffered from chronic ear infections,” according to information provided by Girl Scouts of America. “She had lost most of her hearing in one ear because of improper treatment. At her wedding she lost hearing in her other ear after a grain of good-luck rice thrown at the event lodged in her ear, puncturing the eardrum and resulting in an infection and total loss of hearing in that ear.”
Troop members and their parents toured the Warren Center and learned about audiology and speech. “Many children will have the opportunity to play with the Animal Farm toy and enjoy it. It was thoughtful and generous of you to think of us,” MaryBeth Richards, associate director, said.
