Although she does not have a particular love of history, nor is she from Sachse, Girl Scout Lizzie Roethel created an activity book for the Sachse Historical Society for her Gold Award.
The Allen resident said she decided to make the activity book for the historical society because her mother is in the same Daughters of the American Revolution chapter as Tricia Lindsey, who serves as secretary for the historical society.
Roethel said that growing up, her parents took her several national parks and historical sites, which helped influence her decision to create the activity book.
“As a kid, I really liked doing the national parks activity books,” she said. “That’s a vivid memory of mine, that we would always do the junior ranger program, so I was like ‘why not make it for the museum?’”
