Scouts Take Trumbull Town Hall

Local scouts shadowed government officials March 21.

(Taken from a press release) Scouts in Government Day 2013 provided a special opportunity for Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Cub Scouts to learn about the Town of Trumbull.  On March 21, 38  scouts spent the afternoon on the job with Trumbull officials, employees, and volunteers, including the First Selectman, Police Chief, Animal Control Officer, Emergency Medical Service, and Videographer.

Continuing a tradition originated forty years ago by First Selectman Clarence Heimann, the scouts wrote essays to apply for the privilege of participating in this event.  Shadowing their mentors, the scouts learned about the scope and challenges of their position.

At the closing ceremony, First Selectman Timothy M. Herbst congratulated them scouts and presented a certificate and patch to each participant.
