Daisy safety

This week, Daisy Troop 60160 in Merrimack, NH, earned their Daisy Safety pin. They learned the Heimlich maneuver on stuffed animals, practiced what to do in a fire - “Don’t hide, get outside!”, and what to do when they are lost. They also made their own first-aid kits to take on their hike at the next field trip for the Girl Scout motto of “Be prepared!” Leaders are Joanne Grobecker and Shay Aguiar.
