Revitalization of Girl Scout park in Mastic Beach

Through the assistance of Legislator Kate Browning and Chief of Staff Joshua Slaughter, the Suffolk County Sherrif’s Department came to aid in the revitalization of the Girl Scout Park on Mastic Road in Mastic Beach this morning.

The park was obtained and opened as a Girl Scout Gold Award Project by former Girl Scouts Dana Siegfried, Anastasia Hagan, Dana DiAngelo and Melissa Behrens and their their leader, Laura Sorgie (currently local Service Unit 48 Coordinator) in 2000. A committee was formed in 2016 which has been holding fundraisers locally to raise money for revitalization efforts.

Undersheriff Steve Kuehhas met with Joshua Slaughter, Kate Browning, and Girl Scout SU48 Community Service Chair Michelle Clements today at the park with deputy sheriff’s and inmate workers from the Sheriff’s Labor Assistance Program to begin landscaping tasks.
