Malverne's Girl Scouts run the government for a day


Girl Scout troops in Malverne got to run the local village government for a day during Girl Scouts Government Day on March 9. The annual event provides a special experience for Girl Scouts to have a better understanding of how their village government operates, while having an opportunity to meet face-to-face with some of the local elected officials.

This year, the Girl Scouts held a mock village board meeting and took on the roles of mayor and village trustees. For more information on community events, go to
