Girl scouts bearing cookies visit road commission
Editor's Note: It came to our attention that our crew at our Road Commission came into a treasure trove of trefoils, a pile of peanut butter patties and a throng of thin mints of late so we asked N3 friend and NCRC Manager Kelly Smith to deliver the skinny on a (caramel) delite-ful day for all involved.
Troop #4581 chose Newaygo county road commission as their “hometown hero” for this seasons cookie sales. The prize for being “the Chosen one” is a supply of girl scout cookies as well as a visit from the troop members themselves.
We were very pleased to hear that the troop had chosen us, and when cookies became part of the reward it made it all the more special. While making the delivery, a tour of the facility was arranged for the scouts and the office staff had a great time with the troop showing them around the facility and equipment, they also took time to hand paint one of the snow plows. The staff of the road commission greatly appreciates the recognition from troop 4581, and of course the cookies, but most importantly the opportunity to spend some time with such a great group of fine young ladies and their awesome troop leaders and we look forward to many more encounters with groups such as them. Please come see us at some of future events we have planned for this summer listed below, and as always, Have a safe summer.
