Autumn may be upon us, but Howard Beach children are already preparing for the springtime.
On Sunday, Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder joined with Girl Scouts Troop #4286 and Troop #4165 to beautify the entrance to the neighborhood by planting over a hundred daffodil bulbs at the welcome sign on Cross Bay Boulevard and the Belt Parkway.
The bulbs will bloom once the winter ends and add some floral aesthetics to the sign that welcomes people traveling south on Cross Bay Boulevard to Howard Beach.
The event was organized by some of the Scouts’ parents. Starbucks also chipped in to provided free fertilizer for the bulbs.
