Western New York Girl Scouts Appear on The View with First Lady Michelle Obama

In Rochester, NY, ABC News Channel 9 reports that It’s been a big year for some Western New York Girl Scouts. A troop out of Fairport, near Rochester, visited the White House back in March and on Tuesday they appeared on “The View” with First Lady Michelle Obama.

The episode focused on her new book called “American Grown,” which promotes good eating habits through gardening. The troop was among many children across the nation who participated in the spring planting of the kitchen garden at the White House earlier this year.

“It was really exciting and we never thought we would be gardening with the First Lady ever in our lives,” said one scout.
