Tuckahoe/Eastchester Girl Scout Troop 2512 planted mums at the Eastchester Public Library on Sept. 26 as part of the townwide effort to plant flowers to celebrate autumn.
The girls prepared the planting beds by picking up garbage and pulling weeks and then planted 12 yellow, red and purple mums in the front in the library and in the reading garden near the side entrance.
The Scouts were participating in the Eastchester Beautification Foundation’s “Paint the Town Gold” project. The foundation is asking local residents and businesses to plant mums, pansies and daffodils this fall.
