    Proverbs 3:5





    he 5th grade Junior Troop #162 girls who attend

    Bragg School in Chester just completed their

    Bronze Award This is the highest award a JuniorGirl Scout can achieve. They identified a need at the

    Chester Library for a space for kids who are in the in-

    between ages of 3-5th grades. The library has a "Teen

    Room" and a childrens room, but no area designated for

    this age group. They re-decorated an area within the chil-

    drens room and named it " Cool Kidz Reading Lounge" -

    a name in which most of the 5th grade voted on. Troop 162

    created a piece of artwork for this new space and the

    library funded the purchase of the new chairs, carpet, and

    ottomans. The girls used their girl scout cookie sales prof-

    it to help fund the project as well.

    Attention Medicare Beneficiaries

    The flagpole on the front lawn of the

    Morris County Courthouse on

    Washington Street in Morristown

    will be painted this weekend and will need

    approximately two weeks to cure. As a

    result, Morris County officials want thepublic to know that flags will not be flying

    from the flagpole during that time.

    In the interim, however, an American

    flag will be placed outside of the front

    entrance to the courthouse during regular

    business hours.

    Flags will again be flown as soon as theflagpole is able to accept them.
