A visit to London before the pandemic

Before the COVID-19 hit Europe or the US, the Girl Scouts of Troop 10986 of Bedford, NH, enjoyed a trip to London, England. Three Senior Girl Scouts and two adults made the trip. The girls have been Girl Scouts together since kindergarten. The majority of the trip was funded with cookie sales, which they worked on between 2017 and 2019, budgeting $6,000 for the group. Leader Lauren Wilensky said each family, per person, spent less than $175. They made the trip in February during school break. They toured London and visited Pax Lodge, where the Girl Guides there were fascinated by all the badges and patches on their vests.

At the end of the trip, the girls decided to challenge themselves and see if they could hit every stop on an Underground line, getting photos at each one, within two hours during evening rush – and did it!


Bee-friendly Girl Scouts

Daisy-Brownie Troop 10063 of Manchester, NH, has been working on the “All Abuzz” bee patch from Ella J. Embroidery by having the girls do one thing at home and then sharing it on their Facebook page. Julia, left, is a third-grade Brownie, and Mackenzye is a first-grade Daisy, who planted bee-friendly plants.
