The Girl Scouts of Troop 600 (from Ridgeway School) toured Manchester Town Hall and met Mayor Palmer on Friday, February 13, 2015. The Girl Scouts are working to earn their Government Badge.
Mayor Palmer explained what our municipal government is and what it does. The girls are studying the basics of government, the laws that affect us every day, and met some of the people who work in government. They seemed to most enjoy meeting “Officer Storm,” Manchester Police Department’s newest addition to the K-9 unit.
The girls of Scout Troop 600 have shown great interest in their community and plan to be active citizens in their town.
