Girl Scouts Clean the Town

One man's trash is another man's treasure . but then again, sometimes it's just trash. Girl Scouts from Junior troop #326 and troop #523 in the Yellow Rose Service Unit worked to "Make the World a Better Place" by participating in the 26th Annual Missouri City Spring Clean Up held on Saturday, March 24th.

Although it was a dirty work, the girls did a beautiful job ridding their designated areas of trash and debris. The girls picked up trash around Independence Park and lake area. Heather F. was one of the girls from Troop #326 that participated in the Clean Up. "I learned that we should not litter. All the trash in the lake can hurt the fish and the ducks. Everyone needs to work together to keep our community clean," said Heather. They collected a total of 10 garbage bags full of trash.
