Members of Girl Scout Troop 94097 may be young, and they may be small, but they were integral part of this year’s Washington Township Memorial Day Ceremony. 

As part of their journey to accomplish a Bronze award, the members collected more than 15 hours in helping to prepare for and host the event, which was held at Rock Spring Park on Saturday, May 23.

The girls made patriotic “swaps,” or pins, and bracelets to hand out to everyone who attended. Troop members also made delicious treats for guests to enjoy and helped decorate the park and senior center prior to the event.

As hosts, troop members greeted guests, handed out the swaps and programs, and had the honor of walking in the procession for the event along with many Washington Township veterans, active soldiers, and keynote speaker CPT. Anthony F. Roberts.

Troop members include Grace Finlay, Maeve Colligan, Carolina Booth, Liya Barski, Stephanie Bruin, Audra Willsey, Noelle Deehan and Tori Murray.

Every year our Long Valley Girl Scouts make a gracious and "expert" contribution to our Memorial Day ceremony. This year was certainly no exception. Actually, it may have been the best effort yet by these fabulous young ladies, their Scout Leaders and Scout Moms. The Post 1776 Veterans look forward to their help each and every year. They are truly a "Second Unit" for our Post and we could not ask or hope for better "back up". Thanks to All of these great young ladies from ALL of the Veterans! Woody Burgener, Adjutant, Post 1776
