Community Events : Community Club of New Boston Joins Hands with the Girl Scouts
Posted by Ralyn on 2009/5/22 13:57:44 (729 reads) News by the same author

Saturday, May 2nd, 2009, the Community Club of New Boston joined hands with with local Girl Scouts in community service for Joining Hands Day.

We scouted the community to help clean up yards of individuals that were not able to do it themselves. We were able to help 2 local senior citizens with Spring yard clean up. We then moved on to clean up the property around the Dairy Barn. From there we ventured up main street, picking up all trash and litter we found along the way and weeded around the New Boston town sign.

Several Girl Scouts from Lenise & Tammy Phillips troops were able to earn their Earth Day badges and discovered that it was actually a lot of fun to help in the community.

We'd like to thank Bay C for generously providing pizza for our lunch. They were delicious and helped stoke our energy to continue our tasks through the afternoon.

We'd also like to thank the Conservation Club for donating the funds to provide "Joining Hands" T-shirts for all helpers.

The Girl Scouts closed the day at Fish Fry Park with games and discussions on how to help in the future.

Thank you to all those that helped!

Pictures coming soon...
