Letters: March 19 Edition

Dear Editor,
I would like to thank our mayor on behalf of the junior Girl Scout Troop 243 for recogizing March 8-14 as National Girl Scout week. The Girl Scouts would also like to thank all those in town who ordered cookies to support our local troops and all those who chose to order extra boxes to be sent overseas to our soldiers. We appreciate all of you, and I am sure that when the cookies arrive overseas the soldiers will be grateful as well.
Please keep an eye out around town for posters from the junior Girl Scouts that are trying to raise awareness for our local recycle center. They have chosen several businesses around town to drop off a box in which to place paper products such as plain white paper, colored paper, newspapers and junk mail to be recycled. Later, they will go and collect these boxes and drop off the materials to be recycled at our local recycle facility. Many people aren’t even aware that we have a local recycle facility, so the Girl Scouts decided to raise community awareness on the matter. I am proud of their ambition to “make the world a better place” and to “use resouces wisely” beginning with Meeker. Please join us in our efforts to cut down waste and recycle as a community.
Vanessa Martin
Junior Troop 243 leader
