It features kid-centered entertainment, community-organization participation with an emphasis on health and the environment as well as opportunities to donate used clothing, give blood, recycle e-waste, shred your confidential documents, mingle with friends and acquaintances, give your kid a pony ride (weather permitting) and have a lot of fun.

The Girl Scouts of NK do a GREAT job. They accomplish good works for the community (last year they rehabbed a historical cemetery in Quidnessett). They instill solid morals and a respect for our country and each other. They are GREAT people and deserve recognition.
