Naples Girl Scouts Take Action

“Save Our Pool” – a Take Action Project by Girl Scout Troop 1065
Article Submitted by Girl Scout Troop 1065

Girl Scouts from Troop 1065 in the River Park community in Naples heard that the City Council was considering closing their neighborhood pool and replacing it with a sprinkler park.
The troop decided to take action. They met with a reporter from the Naples Daily News to learn how a reporter finds information on an issue.
Then they made up a petition which they took to a nearby child care center. One of the girls spoke at a local church and the troop distributed the petitions there, too.
The troop and several community members supporting the cause attended a City Council meeting and Girl Scout Cadette Alandria Williamson addressed the Council with their concern about closing the pool.
The City Council now has a committee studying options for remodeling the pool!
