Girl Scouts on the Big Island got a first-hand look at vehicle maintenance and safety, earning them a “Car Care” badge at the 2nd Annual Car Care Badge Workshop.

Auto Body Hawai’i teamed up with Girl Scouts of Hawai’i for the workshop, where girls learned from the company’s General Manager, Dale Matsumoto.

Matsumoto led the hands-on presentation outlining vehicle maintenance, safety, and what they should do if they are ever involved in a vehicle accident.

“We are proud to play a part in educating girls before they start driving to help keep them informed and safe,” Matsumoto said. “We want them to understand more about their cars, the importance of having them properly maintained, as well as safe driving practices.  This workshop provides invaluable preparedness and we look forward to hosting more of these types of classes for other segments of our community.”

The annual event is open to all registered Girl Scouts and will help them earn their “Car Care” badge.


Those interested in attending the event next year can register with Marci Goldman-Manker, Hawai’i Island Girl Scouts of Hawai’i Membership & Program Services Coordinator, by calling 966-9376 or e-mail [email protected]
