Members of Girl Scout Troop 66339 have set two events to raise money for an upcoming trip to Costa Rica.

The 19 scouts will hold car washes from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 9 and May 23 at the Burger King in Rutgers Plaza, Easton Avenue, and a Multi-Family Mega Yard Sale from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 30 at the Quick Mart parking lot, 921 Hamilton St.

The girls plan to visit Costa Rica in 2016.

Many of the scouts, part of the Girl Scouts Heart of NJ Council, have been together since the troop was formed by Michelle Fielder in 2004.

Over the years, the scouts have performed nearly 2,500 hours of community service, collectively earning 17 Bronze Awards and 8 Silver Awards. The scouts’ Bronze Award Project in 2010 was called Operation Restoration, and was the refurbishing of the playground at the Somerset Presbyterian Nursery School.

The scouts have also volunteered at the Second Chance for Animals Shelter, Spring Hills Assisted Living, Franklin Food Bank, Ronald McDonald House and help run the Sisters Network Breast Cancer 5K each fall. They are currently making plans to pursue the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest award a Girl Scout can earn.

Over the past 11 years, the troop has gone on 13 overnights, 103 day trips and activities and sold over 20,000 boxes of cookies. The trips included mother and daughter camping in 2006, Philadelphia Zoo 2007, Franklin Institute Spy Camp 2009, Wolf Lodge 2008-9, Rocking Horse Ranch 2010, Buehler Challenger Space Center 2011 and Washington D.C. in 2014.

The troop has had many presentations by members of our troop families such as yoga, computer technology and even a visit from the NJ State Trooper helicopter.

The troop is lead by Michelle Fielder, Linda Darby, Denise Davis, Vidhu Goyal and Yvette Murry.
