    Memorial Day Celebration given for the

    Washington Township Vets that occurred

    Saturday, May 23, 12 noon at the Senior Center at

    Rock Spring Park, Long Valley.

    Girl Scout Troop # 94097 traveled their journey to accom-

    plish the Bronze award by collecting fifteen plus hourshelping in the preparation and hosting of this event. The

    preparation included making patriotic "swaps" which are

    pins, and bracelets to hand out to all those who attended.

    They then prepared all kinds of delicious treats for them to

    enjoy after the ceremony concluded. The day of the event,

    they arrived early and helped decorate the park and the sen-

    ior center. During the event, they greeted guests, handed

    out their "swaps" and the programs as guests arrived. They

    had the honor of walking in the procession for the event

    along with many Washington Township Veterans, active

    soldiers, a Keynote speaker by the name of CPT Anthony F.Roberts, Knights of Columbus, Fire Fighters and other boy

    and girl scouts. Two of my girls helped two veterans pres-

    ent a wreath and placed it under the flag. It was truly a

    moving ceremony and an honor to have my girls partici-

    pate. After the ceremony was over, they cleaned up thegrounds inside the center and outside the park.
