LAKESIDE — Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow could keep a local troop of Junior Girl Scouts from planting Jacaranda trees at Lakeview Elementary School on March 17.

Fortunately, Mother Nature held off the downpour until after the trees were in the ground.

Troop 6291 joined forces with the Lakeside Mile of Trees to plant 15 Jacaranda trees along the fence line of the academy.

The trees were small, but that didn’t deter the vision the girls had of improving their school campus.
