SECAUCUS – Close to 60 Girl Scouts will plant begonias, marigolds, and other types of flowers in planters throughout the center of town on Saturday, May 12. The group is representative of the entire service unit and will include girls from the Brownies, Juniors, Cadets, and Ambassadors.
The effort to beautify the town is part of Project Pride, which was initiated by Councilman Clancy in 1986 when he took office.
“They just love it,” said Judy Jaeger. She is the Brownies Troop 12251 leader and the Service Unit Manager for the neighborhood.
“It is important for the girls to give back to the community, but also take pride for what they’ve done.”
Jaeger said that the Girl Scouts enjoy seeing the flowers grow and continue to take care of them throughout the year. The girls get a patch for their sash as part of their involvement. The Girl Scouts celebrates its centennial year, and Project Pride is one of many activities the troops will take part in during this special year.
