Gordon Low, strived to help its members grow, develop, and mature in ways that
best advance them as stellar citizens of the Nation, stewards of the planet,
and contributors to the communities that call them home, and;

Troops across the country, Girl Scout Troop No. 50476 has consistently occupied
a position among the most active, generous, and compassionate Troops in the
Whereas, because Girl Scout Troop
No. 50476 became aware that the Heidelberg Police Department was lacking funds
to secure a bullet proof vest for K-9 Officer Rocky, Girl Scout Troop 50476 eagerly
and enthusiastically undertook a major troop-wide project to raise monies to
purchase a vest, and by means of several creative, imaginative and productive
fundraising activities, raised in excess of one thousand dollars to help offset
the cost of a vest, and;
Whereas, properly outfitted with a bullet proof vest,
Officer Rocky can now more safely and efficiently patrol the Borough of
Heidelberg and better serve and protect her citizens, and;
Whereas, because it is all together
fitting and proper to formally and publicly recognize Girl Scout Troop No.
50476 for its service to the Heidelberg Police Department, to K-9 Officer
Rocky, and to the people of the Borough of Heidelberg.
Therefore, be it proclaimed, that
on behalf of a grateful citizenry, an appreciative Borough Council, a thankful

No. 50476 for its efforts in raising funds to help procure a bullet proof
