Milton’s Better Together resident volunteer group recently pitched in to help local Girl Scouts paint and repair a 500-foot steel fence at Cogburn Woods Elementary School — the troop’s summer service project. They were joined by the Milton chapter of the Young Men’s Service League and Cub Scout Pack 1459.

“This was a golden opportunity to teach the girls the value of planning, organization and hard work,” Colleen Jones, leader of Girl Scouts Troop 3027, said in a news release. “And we greatly appreciate the support we received when we reached out to the other groups.”

By splitting the fence up into sections, the job soon became manageable. With everyone’s help, the fence was spruced up in just two weeks.

“When we first started the project, we didn’t think it would blossom into so much more,” Caroline Tobin, a rising sixth grader and Girl Scout, said in a news release.

To celebrate a job well done, the Girl Scouts hosted an ice cream social for everyone who worked on the project.
