Queen of the Rosary Daisy Troop leaders Julie Krol, Cheryl Bayer and Mary Rittle were instrumental in designing an Earth Day project that provided the Scouts and family members with a project that would enhance the school grounds.

With the assistance of Heather Lee from Berthold's Nursery, the Girl Scout troops were provided with a landscape plan and recommendations for plants that would best suit the grounds in front of the school.

After careful consideration, troop funds and some of the Daisy Troop's cookie profits were used to purchase 20 shrubs and 32 perennials.

On Saturday, April 21, the girls and several families spent the day digging, planting, moving existing plants, trimming bushes, and watering.

The Girl Scout troops really embraced the true meaning behind Earth Day.
