Hundreds of young girls came out for the Girl Scouts of Suffolk County’s (GSSC) 7th Annual Girl Scout Day at the Long Island Game Farm – Wildlife Park & Children’s Zoo. Girl Scouts made swaps from materials provided by GSSC that they later attached to their uniforms. In addition to arts and crafts with their siblings and other children visiting the Game Farm, the scouts also had a chance to go onto the rides and visit, pet and bottle-feed animals, including the giraffe, llamas, goats, lemurs, alpacas, pigs, turkeys and more. Adults who visited to the zoo learned more about GSSC and what the organization does. There was also merchandise on sale, with proceeds going to benefit GSSC.
Girl Scouts have a special connection to the Game Farm’s co-owners, Diane and Melinda Novak. Melinda, the Game Farm’s vice president, was a Girl Scout as a child and her mother Diane, who is president of the Game Farm, was the Troop Leader.
