A recent rainy Sunday didn’t keep Girl Scouts Julia Day and Charlotte Zuber from their responsibilities as they conducted a pet adoption and education event held concurrently with the Warren Car Show.
Julia and Charlotte, both 14, are freshman at Watchung Hills Regional High School. They also share years in Girl Scouts, specifically the township-based Troop 65926, which is co-led by Jane Maloney and Ellen Draikiwicz.
“And they’ve also known each other since kindergarten, and they both love animals,” said Dana Zuber, Charlotte’s mother.
So it was a natural pairing for Julia and Charlotte to work together to earn their Girl Scout Silver Award, which requires becoming accomplished in four areas: building skills, exploring career, gaining leadership skills and making a commitment to self-improvement.
“We have 11 of our 14 girls going for Silver Awards. Guiding the girls has been as educational for us as it has been for them,” said Maloney, who has lead the troop for a decade.
