Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors participated in Medford’s Patriot’s Day Ceremony. The older girls paired up with the younger ones to march from City Hall to the Salem Street Burial Grounds in Medford Square. Once there, the girls recited the Pledge of Allegiance in unison. Thanks to all the girls, leaders, and their families for participating!
