On Oct. 13, more than 200 Medfield Girl Scouts celebrated the national organization's 100th anniversary in typical Girl Scout fashion -- giving to the community by day and celebrating around a camp fire with songs and treats by night.
During the day, scouts Brittany Hardiman and Jeanette Hasapidis coordinated K-12 grade service projects which included a food drive, park cleaning ups, and more.
Organizers say that 211 scouts performed 24,000 minutes or 400 hours of service between Friday afternoon at Tilden Village and Saturday's activities all around town.
In the evening, the girls gathered at Rocky Woods for a bonfire with apple cider, sweet treats, and lots of singing. A good time was had by all.
Organizers say the event was a huge success and wanted to thank:
- Jeannette Hasapidis and Brittany Hardiman who co-chaired a committee of adult volunteers that coordinated various projects around town from which the girls could choose
- Petrina Floody for coordinating the evening bonfire
- Garrett and Marci Graham, owners of Needham Garden Center and Medfield resident for making the bonfire possible
- Suzanne Werner for all her help
- Jim Snyder at Medfield Park & Recreation for all of his support and allowing the group to use the Pfaff Center
- New N' Town for a grant to purchase pumpkins to give to Tilden Village residents as part of the project done on Friday
