PARSIPPANY — Lauren Smith of Girl Scout Troop #96229, along with her sister Emily of Troop #96713 and her parents John and Colleen, were honored recently at American Legion Post 249 in Lake Hiawatha.
They received a Certificate of Appreciation signed by the Legion commander and adjutant. Lauren, while volunteering to serve at the Post fish & chips dinner, noticed the hall was badly in need of a paint job.
She asked the Legion’s permission to paint the hall as her Girl Scout Silver project, a Girl Scout’s second highest honor. Since the hall is quite large, she did receive assistance from her family members. The hall looks great and all Legion members were very appreciative.
