Lacey Township Girl Scout Troop Caters to Girls With Special Needs

LACEY, NJ - As Girl Scouting celebrates its first 100 years, Lacey Township Girl Scout Troop 476 is celebrating its first year together. Troop leader Maryann Pietruska formed the troop in an effort to attract girls who might not have considered being a Girl Scout otherwise.
"Four of the girls joined as first-time Girl Scouts," said Pietruska, a retired teacher who taught every type of class from honors to special needs. "Our girls work at their own pace as to what their interests and abilities are."
The five members of the Junior-level troop have various disabilities, ranging from physical to developmental.
