Farmingville, NY - On Tuesday, March 27, Councilwoman Valerie M. Cartright met with Brownie Troop 150 at the Stony Brook Holiday Inn Express where the girls worked to earn their Hospitality Badges. The troop, from Minnesauke Elementary School in East Setauket, enjoyed a tour of the hotel and met with staff members to discuss the hospitality industry and customer service. The tour was followed by a rock painting project during which the Brownies decorated rocks with positive messages that will be placed on site at the hotel.
The Councilwoman spoke with the girls about some of her own responsibilities to the community and explained how constituent services and customer service are related. “The messages penned by these young ladies on their individual rocks reflected a spirit of hope, encouragement and love. I can imagine what these girls will accomplish in the future because they have already started making a positive impact in our community," said Councilwoman Cartright.
