MOVE OVER LEGISLATURE:
GIRL SCOUTS HEAD TO TRENTON 

Members from all 11 New Jersey Girl Scout Councils including a four-person delegation from the Girl Scouts of Washington Rock Council, headed to the state capital on March 15 to take part in New Jersey Girl Scout Councils Legislative Advocacy Day.  The day began was a panel discussion featuring Assemblywomen Linda Stender and Jennifer Beck along with gubernatorial staffers Debbie Mans and Maggie Moran.  All four women were former Girl Scouts and spoke about how their experiences in the movement has shaped them.  Stender, a Fanwood resident, will be honored by GSWRC at its 50th Anniversary Celebration to be held on April 24 at the Galloping Hill Inn in Union. 

Following another panel discussion and lunch, the action shifted to the floor of the Assembly as Majority Leader Bonnie Watson-Coleman and Assemblywoman Stender presented GSWRC CEO Donna M. Dolce, representing all 11 New Jersey councils, with a proclamation.

Founded in 1957, GSWRC enthusiastically and capably delivers the optimal Girl Scout experience to over 11,000 girls and adults in 24 communities.  For more information on their 50th Anniversary along with much, much more be sure to point your web browser to www.westfieldnj.com/girlscouts.

SIDEBARLaughs

Those who grew-up in Morris County, NJ are probably familiar with the AT&T training facility in Chester that truly is a sght to see. The facility actually treats the logs used in making telephone poles with the preservative compound to make them weather and pest proof.  Now, imagine a field of these poles standing upright in unseen vats so that their tops are just a few feet above ground.  I remember being told by my folks that that was where telephone poles were born, and the little ones were "just babies that would grow up to be big and strong like their parents."

It was always a neat place to drive past with your kids to tell them of the "urban legend" about where telephone poles came from.

A good friend who grew up in the area told me about the time his now grown-up son was driving by the area and matter-of-factly explained to his girlfriend about the birthplace of  telephone poles and other myths which he actually believed "because his dad told him so."

You could imagine the look on that girl's face when she realized that her boyfriend was not kidding...he meant and believed every word of it. 

And if you don't believe it..go ask the Easter Bunny!.  :)
