Girl Scouts Make Gift Baskets for Community Volunteers:
The Scarsdale-Edgemont girls scouts put together May Day baskets for those that do so much in our community. School principles, school secretaries, councilmen/women, editors, etc. were selected and then various troops made the baskets as a thank you for all you do to support our girl scouts and our community.
Joanne Wallenstein of Scarsdale10583 was the grateful recipient of a lovely gift basket from Fox Meadow Troop 209, Brownies in the second grade. Thanks so much -- you made our day!
