Ana Uyemura Memorial Bench Dedication Ceremony

Ana UyemuraOn Saturday, October 15, 2010, Troop 8761 spearheaded an effort to raise money for a memorial bench to honor Ana Uyemura. The bench was placed at Camp Mariposa for future generations.

As many of you know, Ana Uyemura served the girl scout community in Sierra Madre and at St. Rita’s School for over 40 years. Sadly, we lost her to cancer in the spring of 2010. Ana was instrumental in organizing the annual International Day event for countless years for the Mount Wilson Vista Council’s Sierra Madre Service Unit. This event was a major community building event and much anticipated by many scout troops each year. She also worked tirelessly to bring a wealth of experiences to young girls in our community and, in doing so, enriched the lives of generations of girl scouts.
