Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas (D-Astoria), rear center right, joined the Brownies of Girl Scout Troop 4293 for a ceremony where the Scouts were awarded badges for community service and volunteering. 

Recently, the Scouts have been involved in several volunteer and service projects throughout Western Queens. The ceremony, held on Friday, recognized the Scouts’ work in donating toys to children in need and making Christmas cards for elderly residents of a local nursing home. After hearing about the troop’s recent volunteer work, Simotas led a discussion with the Scouts about the importance of leadership and female role models in their community. 

Welcome to the discussion.
