CLARK, NJ - Members of Daisy Troop 40556 did their part to beautify the grounds of the Clark Municipal Pool in advance of the pool’s 40th Anniversary Celebration this weekend. The girls cleaned the flower beds in front of the pool and planted spring flowers earlier in the season. As a result of the community service project, the girls earned a gardening patch and Learning Petals for their uniforms. Each petal represents a part of the Girl Scout Law.
The scouts perform a variety of community service projects throughout the school year. In addition to the pool project, the girls participated in Operation Shoe Box, a collection project to benefit soldiers serving overseas. They also helped residents of the Clark Rehabilitation and Nursing Home dye Easter eggs on Good Friday.
The Clark Pool will celebrate its 40th Anniversary this Saturday, June 28, from 10:00 am until 10:00 pm. Activities are planned throughout the day and include a ribbon cutting ceremony at 11:30 am, free food, music, an evening movie and more.
Daisy Scouts is the first step in the Girl Scout program and is designed for girls in grades K-1. Troop 40556 is comprised of Frank K. Hehnly students. Anyone seeking information about the Daisy program can contact troop leader Jen Bianchini.
