Pictures from 2002
Hicksville Association of Girl Scouts, Hicksville NY

This is our first year - and Hicksville Girl Scouts LOVED decorating over 700 Grocery bags for Earth Day 2002! It was a great way to introduce our girls to this years Earth Day activities. With such a large Association, we were happy to find a project that ALL levels of our Scouts could participate in together...and what a wonderful way to show that Girl Scouts "use their resources wisely" to "make the world a better place" - two very important parts of our Girl Scout Law! Our local "Stop and Shop" showed their enthusiasm by celebrating Earth Day all month long, displaying dozens of our Earth Day Grocery bags during the month of April. We will be sure to join the project again next year.... The girls enjoyed saving the planet - one tree at a time!

Thank you so much!
