WOOD-RIDGE, NJ - Wood-Ridge third grade Brownie Troop #97130 is "Celebrating Community" when they participated in a parade of cars to tour some special landmarks around Wood-Ridge.

The tour, organized by Troop Leader Jane began at the Wood-Ridge Memorial Library on Sunday. It included driving past Wood-Ridge High School, the Civic Center, Wood-Ridge Intermediate School, Bianchi House, home of the Wood-Ridge Historical Society, the municipal Building, police department and fire department, Catherine E. Doyle School, and Veterans Park. It ended at the Rosie the Riveter Statue in Wesmont, which honors the women who worked in factories during World War II.

The tour is part of the "Celebrating Community" badge the troop is working on. In addition, girls need to complete three activities at home, including learning about the New Jersey symbols (state tree, flower, bird) and motto; finding three celebration songs, and decide whether to design a new troop banner, modify old banner, or just keep the one we made.

They received an escort from members of the Wood-Ridge Police Department, including Lieutenant James Witkowski and Officer Joseph Manfredonia.
