(Hidden Valley, Ind.) – For one Hidden Valley resident, her summer is centered around helping others.

Girls Scout Jamie Morman is currently working on earning her Girl Scout Gold Award, which can only be accomplished by volunteering a minimum of 80 hours to a project that will benefit the community.

For her project, Morman has decided to completely replace the aging spillway bridge between the Hidden Valley Lake dam and the marina parking lot.

A newer, wider bridge design would meet ADA requirements and allow for double strollers, wheelchairs and bikes to cross. Replacing the current bridge would also eliminate the need for a ramp or stairs by lowering the bridge to parking lot level.

Morman has set up a GoFundMe page to raise the $20,000 it will take to complete the project. Anyone who submits a donation worth $1,000 or more will receive a plaque on the new bridge once construction is completed.

Morman hopes to finish the bridge project by the end of summer.
