Girl Scout of the Colonial Coast and Great Bridge Rotary Club honor Jerry Hansen

The Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast honored Jerry Hansen by naming the Jerry Hansen Tagalong Trail after him in the outback on Cedar Road. Jerry Hansen and Nellie Hayes were instrumental in raising funds for the Girl Scout building on Cedar Road. Jerry was also honored with a bench in his name on what would have been his 75th birthday by the Great Bridge Rotary Club. He was the Charter President and began the club 22 years ago.
