BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Bridgewater Junior Girl Scout Troop #61187 met with Mayor DanHayes Dec. 13 as part of their "Inside Government" badge.

Hayes taught the girls about local government, including the structure of the local, state and federal governments; how laws are made; the history of Bridgewater and Raritan governments; and what the different government employees do.

To earn their badge, the girls also visited the Bridgewater Police Department and municipal court, and held a mock election in November.  

The troop is so appreciative to Hayes and his staff for taking the time to meet with them.
