Troop Spotlight Header

Girl Scouts around our council are always active – camping, traveling, doing service projects, and making the world a better place. Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains invites all Girl Scouts in our council to share photos of their adventures, achievements, projects, and more. Send your photos to us at customercare@girlscoutsgwm.org. Be sure to include a description of the event, your troop number and levels involved, when it took place, and any other relevant information.


Ambassador Troop 10085 in Hooksett, NH, designed, built and installed this sign for the outdoor classroom at Cawley Middle School in Hooksett about four years ago. The original letters were damaged, so they repainted with help from Jim Walsh of Frank’s Signs. It was installed on Saturday, May 25. Pictured are Sheila Shamel, co-leader; Catey Crain; Charlotte Clement; Carley Crain; and Karren Crain, leader.

The Swift Water Paddlers have had a successful season! On May 18, the Girl Scout team competed in Wolfeboro, NH, making it through the rapids with no issues. They took first, second and third in the women’s division. On Memorial Day weekend, they competed in New York, and placed third in the 15-mile endurance race (Stephanie Matte and Heather McGlauflin), first in the six-girl relay (Bianca Gallo, Emily Overhulser, Coral Chamberlin, and Erica Faucher), and fifth in the six-girl relay (Sara Overhulser, Aimee D’Apice, Haeley McCullought, Sabrina Smith, Kaylee Rose, and Hannah Hebert).

Girl Scout Juniors in Troop 58248 from Bennington, NH, took a trip to New York City on May 4. They drove to Stamford, CT, then took the train into the city, arriving at Grand Central Station. They explored the public library, Girl Scout Central, Rockefeller Plaza, the American Museum of Natural History and more. This was the first visit to the city for three of the girls, and the first time on a train for two of them. Everyone had fun!

Service Unit 219, Pelham and Hudson, NH, had their annual camporee at Camp Kettleford the weekend of May 18-19. When all together, they formed a giant friendship circle.

Girl Scouts in multi-level Troop 58251, Danville, VT, presented the colors along with Boy Scouts and veterans at the Memorial Day ceremony on May 27 at the Danville green and cemetery.

100 Girl Scouts in 14 troops in Amherst and Mont Vernon, NH, bridged to the next level at a ceremony on May 29.
