CLARK – Clark Daisy Troop 425 was recently visited by Clark Police Detective Bill Buczynski at their October meeting. Buczynski, who is the head of the juvenile division for the Clark Police Department, discussed the important roles police officers play every day in the community. The girls, in return, shared thoughts on how their Daisy troop can help the community of Clark as well.
“It is important for the girls to truly understand just how important police officers are to our community and we are grateful to Detective Buczynski for attending our meeting,” said co-troop leader Jackie Skwirut.
The visit by Buczynski was part of a series of activities that helped the girls earn their next achievement petal – the “Friendly and Helpful Petal” or better known as the yellow petal. Daisies earn “petals” for successfully completing a particular task or activity, where the more senior level of Girl Scouts earn “patches” to acknowledge such accomplishments.
“Each month the girls have the opportunity to earn their petals as a group,” explains co-troop leader Kelli Kaminski. “Outside of the monthly group activities, the troop will also have the opportunity to earn patches for the completing individual activities too.”
