Maplewood Village Planting Day

Girl scouts from Troop 21209 braved the early morning cold to help beautify Maplewood Avenue.

With temperatures struggling to get above freezing, the scouts pitched in with Maplewood Village Alliance to plant pansies in the sidewalk planters. While waiting for the planters to thaw enough to work the soil, the scouts grabbed garbage bags and picked up trash along the avenue.

The hours that the scouts worked go towards a community service project, the Girl Scout Bronze Award.
