{March, 2006} Senior Girl Scout Denise Tom Completes Gold Award

Denise Tom,a Senior Girl Scout from South Pasadena's troop 170, recently completed her Gold Award project. Her mission was to replant the garden surrounding the Eddie Park meetinghouse, where she created a xeriscape-style garden that requires a minimal amount of water. She will be honored in a ceremony this coming June.
