TOWNSEND — Townsend Girl Scout Troop 30643 provided a service for Townsend Ecumenical Outreach by helping to count and roll change donated during the TEO Summer Penny Drive. While volunteers Ken Gerken, Don Cowan and Hirk Fortin sorted all the change, the Scouts counted and rolled pennies for several hours!
This is the fifth year the Girl Scouts have assisted with counting change from the TEO drive. They are aware of the importance of the fund raiser and know that all proceeds assist residents and aid in an emergency. This year the total for the TEO Summer Penny Drive is $864, which is a record amount for the drive.
The Senior-Ambassador Troop invites girls in Townsend (grades 10-12) to join the troop. The troop actively provides community service, works to develop their leadership skills, plans camping trips, and works on interest projects. Please call troop advisor Chris Boisse at 978-597-6836 for more information about Girl Scouts in Townsend.
