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!
