SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ - Girl Scout Brownie Troop #65131 enhanced the newly renovated South Plainfield Library by planting a variety of flowers last week.
This completed the last step of their Brownie journey badge. The journey required them to take action and make a difference in their community. The Girl Scout Brownies brainstormed for a fitting project and together voted to plant flowers to beautify the new library. The variety of flowers included begonias, geraniums, impatiens and other annuals.
The Brownies were assisted by Cadette Troop #65388 ( Alanna R., Alyssa R., Rebecca H., Olivia G., Alexis R., and Jillian M.). They offered their time and assistance on a voluntary basis. Six Cadettes in total were present, and each showed up prepared with their own tools. The Brownie troop was grateful for the extra hands and guidance from the older girls.
At the completion of the project, the girls learned a lesson that pitching in just a little can have a lasting impact, if not on the community, then certainly in their hearts
The Brownie Troop is led by Sharon Davis and Yin Cabrera and consists of nine third graders: Ava Cabrera, Vivian Capozzi, Emily Davis, Samantha Droge, Maria Fuschetti, Emma Hoppe, Emma Hoyos, Kiley Jennings and Aashna Thakkar (not pictured).
All flowers and gardening gloves were donated by the Home Depot in South Plainfield. The Brownies would like to express their gratitude to Home Depot for their generous donation, as well as to the South Plainfield Library for their patience and support.
