Under the leadership of Christine Connelly, the Conestoga Girl Scout Troop contributed to a Veteran’s Appreciation Ceremony on November 11th. The school just received a commendation letter by the House of Representatives regarding the troop member’s participation and how it was critical to the success of the event, which the House sponsored.
The troop members arrived two hours in advance of the ceremony to prepare and become familiar with the program agenda. They braved the cold, windy weather to hold flags along the outside patio greeting our veterans and their families upon entering the building. This required seven girls at a time as they presented the United States and Pennsylvania flags, as well as flags representing the five branches of the military.
The troop members proudly took the stage at the beginning of the program to lead the Pledge of Allegiance. The members of the Conestoga Girl Scout Troop worked with the members of the Chestnut Level Girl Scout Troop presenting medals to each veteran in attendance. Please enjoy some pictures of the event.
