A day of giving and a day of learning. That's how a girl scout troop from Nutter Fort spent their 9/11 and the National Day of Service.
The scouts planted flowers and put new mulch in a flower bed outside at the Louis A. Johnson VA Hospital. They, along with the Clarksburg VFW, planted a wreath in the flower bed. After the wreath was planted, there was a moment of silence to remember those lost on that tragic day. The Clarksburg VFW explained to the girls what happened that day.
"I was in D.C. at the time working there when the plane hit the pentagon," said Steven Whiteside, Clarksburg VFW.
"The significance of 9/11 might be miss a little bit because there so young, but they realize the date is important and what they do is important, even if it's something as small as putting flowers in," said Carrie Friend, Girl Scouts troop mentor.
The scouts earned community service hours for their help at the VA.
