Health Department Thanks Girl Scouts

The Lyndhurst Health Department would like to extend their thanks to Lyndhurst Girl Scouts. They collected 25 bags of food for our local food pantry. The food was collected at their World Thinking Day celebration (which involved Daisy through Ambassador level Girl Scouts learning about Girl Scouting around the world).  The event was held at the Lyndhurst Community Center on February 22, 2015. They worked on France for their very first Thinking Day.
