Seven-year-old Ali LaFazia is an adventurer, a Wolf in Cub Scout Pack 20 Johnston and dedicated volunteer. Now, she can add pioneer to her already strong resumé.
LaFazia recently became the first and only girl to head to the Pinewood Derby Regionals for the Boy Scouts of America’s Narragansett Council, which were held at St. Rocco’s Church in March. Ali’s mother, Sheri, spoke to the Sun Rise over the phone last week and said that Ali officially joined the Boy Scout program last year. Sheri said her daughter, who is one of five girls in the local program, truly feels like a part of the pack.
