Girl Scouts Pet Care Workshop Returns for Second Year

By THE ALTERNATIVE PRESS.COM STAFF

March 5, 2013 at 2:55 PM

SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ - Scotch Plains Junior Girl Scout troop 40288 recently repeated last year’s Pet Care workshop for Brownie Girl Scouts. Two troops of Brownies attended the January event at Brunner School, where they earned the “Pets” badge through activities such as learning about pet care, playing “animal charades,” and making made bird feeders, chew toys and dog beds.

Participants also donated pet food and supplies, which will donated with the dog beds and chew toys to an animal shelter in an area affected by Hurricane Sandy.

The workshop was a money-earning event for the 5th-grade Junior Girl Scout troop, which is saving for a future trip to Disney World. Last year their money-earning efforts culminated in a trip to Great Wolf Lodge in Pennsylvania.

Fanwood-Scotch Plains is one of 138 communities in Girl Scouts Heart of New Jersey, which serves over 25,000 girls and 11,000 adult members in 7 counties across central New Jersey. For more information, call (908) 518-4400 or go to http://www.gshnj.org.
