STRAFFORD, NH – Kristi Flanders, 29, of Strafford, has been recognized by Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains with the New Found Treasure award.
Flanders is the primary troop leader for Girl Scout Troop 59210. She began her role as a leader in January of 2019 for a Daisy troop. She is completing Basic Outdoor Living Skills training, attends every leaders meeting, and made her own leader vest to wear. She has hosted several cookie booths and participated in World Thinking Day. She has also created community events which include a “Frozen 2” movie showing, a Cookie Monster Trunk & Treat, a Disney on Ice show, and a holiday parade with costumes.
“The Service Unit has been blown away by her enthusiasm, confidence, and true team spirit,” said ChrisAnn Wiechert, one of the council’s community team members. “She has also stepped up to assist in community events and is beginning to plan one on her own. Kristi is the kind of New Found Treasure that gives us old timers a true spring in our step and a lens to look at Girl Scouting in a fresh, new way.”
“Kristi is kind, hardworking, energetic, inspiring, encouraging and is a true role model to all those around her,” said New Leader Mentor Corinne George.
Flanders was recognized at a virtual meeting of her service unit on June 18.
