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 Be sure to include a description of the event, your troop number and levels involved, when it took place, and any other relevant information.

Speaking with a senator

The Girl Scout Brownies of Troop 58502 of Bow, NH, enjoyed a Zoom session with U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan in April as part of their Democracy badge work.

Greening up Milton

Milton, VT, Daisy Troop 60336 helped out with Green Up Day on Saturday, May 1, by picking up trash at a couple of local parks and having fun along the way. The girls found countless bottles and cans, cigarette butts, a few tires, and a piece of Styrofoam that was almost as big as some of them. They just finished the Between Earth and Sky Journey, so this was a good way to take action and help the planet and their community.

Greening Up St. Albans

Also in St. Albans, VT, the Girl Scouts of Troop 30456 made a video that was featured on Northwest Access TV.

While the girls were busy cleaning up, WCAX-TV stopped by and featured them on the news!

Cupcake wars at the Mall of NH

The Girl Scouts of Troop 10427 in Raymond, NH, love the Girl Scout Discovery Zone at the Mall of New Hampshire! They’ve enjoyed a STEM project and participated in cupcake wars. They have also welcomed 2 new girls to the troop in the last month.

Cookies for Courville

Troop 51595 in Nashua, NH, decided to give their local Gift of Caring cookies to the staff at Courville. Courville is a long-term care facility hard hit by COVID. They are a hard working group of nurses and nursing aids that LOVED getting this treat. One of the Brownies, Penny, represented the troop at the drop off.

Pounds of pop tops

Girl Scout Brownie Ariana, representing all of the Girl Scouts from multi-level Troop 30228 of Waterbury, Vermont, stands by the more than 25 pounds of pop tops collected by the troop in April. They donated the metal to the Ronald McDonald house in Burlington.

What does it mean to be alive?

Troop 59557, a multi-level troop that meets at the Boys & Girls Club in Concord, NH, recently worked on the Biofab patch. This program introduces Girl Scouts to the science of biofabrication, learning why things are alive, making alien slime, creating their own yeast experiment, and learning all about ARMI Biofab, our partner for this patch.

Together again at last

The Girl Scouts of Troop 10475 in New Durham, NH, were happy to meet in person again after a long quarantine apart. They worked on their Bronze Award project.

Birdhouses for Bradford

Girl Scouts of Troop 59025 in Bradford, VT, painted bird houses and gave them to their elementary school as a way to say thank you to the school and community. Shown are Daisy Bentleigh S., Brownie Evelyn J., Daisy Hadleigh P., Junior Lauren S., Daisy Nalah C., and the principal of Bradford Elementary School, Marla Ianello.

Spreading joy through Blessing Bags

Troop 10639 held a Blessing Bag supply collection, drive-through style, in the parking lot at the Hall Memorial Library in Northfield, NH, on April 24. Their troop leader purchased an additional $100 in supplies that the troop voted on. On April 28, they assembled the bags outside at a park. On May 20, the kits were distributed to the Bread & Roses Kitchen in Franklin that evening with their meal kits. They made four large game bags for children and 30 adult Blessing Bags.

Cadette Emma D. said, “We have already received wonderful feedback from our outreach partner and a request for a few more to distribute to displaced and homeless students in that area.”
