This past Saturday, August 24, we had the pleasure of being part of the public unveiling and dedication ceremony of a hand painted work of art, representing the community organizations and local landmarks throughout Jefferson Township. This piece of art was hand painted by Gabby Edwards, a Jefferson Township resident and Junior at North Pocono High School. Gabby has been a Girl Scout for 10 years and it was time for her to earn the highest award in Girl Scouts, called the Gold Award. A Gold Award has to be both educational and sustainable. Gabby loves creating things and began brainstorming for her project by trying to figure a way to combine all the things represented in the mural. The Jefferson Township Lions Club allowed Gabby to use the front of their building for her project. Gabby’s goal with the mural was to educate people about all the different organizations that do amazing things for our community and to create a sense of pride to be from Jefferson Township. As you can see by the detail and everything included in the mural, Gabby was able to accomplish her goal. We are proud to have been part of the unveiling and also proud to have such hard work put into our department logo. Gabby stated she spent over 2 hours hand painting our logo alone due to all the intricate details. Gabby put in over 60 hours of painting to get the beautiful mural completed. Great work Gabby and congratulations on your award.
