The Lawrence-Ewing Trenton Girl Scouts celebrated the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts with a bang as they led out the Ewing Township annual July 4 parade. As this year’s theme was the celebration of that 100-year mark, the unit showed up in force with hundreds of Girl Scouts, troop leaders and volunteer parents marching proudly.
The entire endeavor was made possible by Cadette Troop No. 70715, under the leadership of Pamela Hornack and Desiree Myers. Together, the girls spent the entire year planning and constructing a massive birthday cake float to lead in the parade.
The float featured massive hand drawings of famous Girl Scouts and troop memories. Over the past year, the girls worked out construction plans, sought out construction materials and experts to teach and guide them along the way and learned a lot about budgeting and project planning.
The Lawrence Ewing Trenton Girl Scouts hosts a wide variety of programs for girls from kindergarten through 12th-grade. Membership boasts 527 girl members and 335 adult members and volunteers.
