On Saturday, March 22, 2014, Girl Scouts from Service Unit 84 (Girl Scouts Heart of New Jersey) handed out over 500 SWAPS to young children along the Hunterdon County Tricentennial Parade route in Flemington.  SWAPS (Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere) are a Girl Scout tradition dating back to the 1950s where they were widely exchanged at national Girl Scout Senior Roundups. 
 
The keepsakes were assembled by dozens of troops over the past month and distributed as a gesture of friendship and congratulations to Hunterdon County on their Tricentennial celebration.
