To clarify, there were about 650 people celebrating with us Saturday evening, all Warren Girl Scouts and their families, with 225 of them sleeping overnight on the library field. We would like to thank the township for all their support and hard work on our behalf - Township Administrator Mark Krane; Recreation Director Eleanora Hermann; Doug Buro, Public Works; and Donna Ostman, Health Department. Additionally, we appreciate Mayor Garafola's enthusiasm and thank her and commitee member DiNardo for celebrating with us. Every single person we worked with was interested in making this event a success - we couldn't have pulled it off with their wonderful support. Jane Maloney & Catherine Niemeyer, event co-chairs
