YORKTOWN, N.Y. – Councilman Vishnu Patel, Town Clerk Diana Quast and Deputy Clerk Maura Weissleder recently helped Girl Scouts from Troop 2829 earn their “Inside Government” badge.

The town officials hosted the Girl Scouts on Thursday, Jan. 26, at Yorktown Town Hall, where they told the girls about their duties.

“This badge is all about learning what it is to be an active citizen in our community and learning about our local government as well as the laws that pertain to our everyday living,” said Karen Dennison, troop leader.
