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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be sure to include a description of the event, your troop number and
levels involved, when it took place, and any other relevant
Drive-through cookie booth
Girl Scout Troop 10600 in Hooksett, NH, had a steady stream of customers at their drive-through cookie-booth on Sunday, February 28.
Girl Scouts Alina, left, and Rowan learned how to make some new recipes at the Cadette Badge Blast day focusing on new cuisines, held online.
Girl Scout Junior Juliette was happy to serve up some Girl Scout Cookies to the school bus driver who pulled up to her cookie booth in Orwell, VT. The bus driver had finished his run and drove through for cookies.
Mini-camp at the mall
During February vacation, the Facilities and Outdoor team delivered mini camps at the Girl Scout Discovery Zone in the Mall of New Hampshire. Bubbles led a group of girls in a ponding activity where they look for organisms in a sample of water from Lake Abenaki at Camp Farnsworth. Flower shared her artistic skill with us as we created coffee filter suncatchers and Sparklez showed girls how light on her feet she is as girls hopped around and learned different ways to jump rope. Take part in these and many other camp activities when you register for camp this summer.

Manchester Daisies meet the mayor
The Daisies of Manchester, NH, Troop 61103 have had a busy first year. They stopped meeting physically right after Thanksgiving because of COVID, but up until that point they had visitors at their meetings such as Manchester's first female mayor, Mayor Joyce Craig, Miss New Hampshire's Outstanding Teen, Isabel Povey, and other local teen title holders with the Miss New Hampshire Scholarship Program, and Officer Kelly McKinney with the Manchester, NH, Mounted Division who brought her police horse, Governor, to one of their meetings for the girls to meet! They also had the opportunity to take advantage of the STEM mobile at the Bedford office where our girls earned one of their Engineering badges. Troop leaders Becky and Jess said, “Our girls are all so sweet, vivacious and full of life. We miss meeting in person, and we will be having a Paint Day at You're Fired in Bedford, NH to celebrate all their hard work selling cookies this year. It is amazing to be able to help build the foundation of leadership skills, STEM awareness, entrepreneurship, teamwork for these future leaders and we can't wait to see what their bright futures with the Girl Scouts organization holds!”
Nashua food donation
The Nashua Girl Scout Community hosted their annual food drive on March 7 to kick off Girl Scout Week! The Girl Scouts donated four trunk loads full of food in memory of former Nashua Girl Scout Rachel Brownstein to Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter. “It felt good to continue this important tradition in spite of the pandemic,” said Troop Leader Cynthia DiFillipo.
Robots are ready
Merrimack, NH, Brownies Paisley and Harper of Troop 59164 had a great time designing their own robots.
Community Service Club helps shelter
The GSGWM Community Service Club received a shout-out from the Seacoast Area Feline Education and Rescue for running an animal supply drive and donating supplies and food. They also donated to a pet store in Hampton that helps supply food to rescue dogs that need extra care in the foster system.
