New troop in Weare enjoys sisterhood and opportunities to grow

WEARE, NH – A new troop of Girl Scout Daisies has been very active since last fall, learning life skills that will serve them well as they grow up. Troop 61281 has six girls in kindergarten and first grade who began meeting last fall at Holy Cross Episcopal Church in Weare.

“We are loving this experience!” said Troop Leader Amy Fontaine.

Her troop has five girls who will bridge to Brownies, which is for girls in second and third grades, and one who will stay a Daisy.

“We love doing crafts, finding ways to help others, have big plans to help clean up a local playground and provide the sandbox with new sand and sand toys, and adventuring outside to try new things,” she said.

The girls made the most of the winter, going on a snowshoeing adventure, which Fontaine called “a big hit.”

Girls are welcome to join Girl Scouts any time of the year, and at any age. Participate by joining an existing troop, forming a new troop, or even as an individual member. Regular membership is just $40, and extended year membership through September 30, 2022, is $56, with financial aid available.

New kindergartners are specially invited to see firsthand how many different things girls can do in Girl Scouts! Starting kindergarten is a big step, and families obviously want their girl to feel as comfortable and confident as possible from day one. Girl Scouts can support and inspire her as she makes new friends, meets new teachers, and tests our new ideas. Our girl-centered kindergarten readiness series are free and open to any girl entering kindergarten this fall.  Check out our special free five-week Make New Friends series. These virtual and in-person opportunities can be found at

Plus, anyone joining by April 30 will qualify to register for the Becoming Me virtual event with former First Lady Michelle Obama!

Girl Scouts is here for girls through it all. Cheering them on, lifting them up, celebrating their strengths. Today, tomorrow, together—we’re on their team. See more at
