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.

First place at the Deerfield Fair

The Girl Scouts of Troop 22367 in Deerfield, NH, took the blue ribbon for their display at the Deerfield Fair this year.

Bow bridges


Bow, NH, Troop 12553 bridged to Cadette on October 3 at Beech Hill Farm. A little bit of rain during the ceremony didn’t stop the fun! The girls celebrated with ice cream, visiting the animals, and completing the corn maze.

Chili in Claremont

Girl Scout Troop 30261 participated in the fall festival and chili cookoff in Claremont, NH, on October 2. The girls were excited to compete! Leader Tara Tilton said “We had a medium white chicken chili and decorated the booth in a Juliette Gordon Low fashion. We made salted caramel brownies to hype people up for new cookie coming, and gave out pearl swaps. We won third and judges’ choice for chili (Two trophies to add to our previous 6!) It was a great time!”

A visit to Clark’s Trading Post

Two Cadettes, a Senior and an Ambassador from Troop 30356 of Lunenburg, VT, visited Clark's Trading Post for their Scout Day on September 12.

Symmetry in nature

Individually registered Girl Scout Amelia is working on her Junior Shapes in Nature badge, and she is having a blast. She has learned about concentric symmetry, bilateral symmetry, fractals, and more. She says “Girl Scouts rock!” Even her brother, who is trying to do his high school work, can’t help but look when she is so excited!

Awesome apple cider

Brownie Troop 59210 of Strafford, NH, got to experience the ancient art of apple pressing to create cider. Leaders Carole and Kelly said the girls “had an awesome time crushing apples to make apple cider, which they all said tasted great.” They thanked Vickery Orchards and Butternut Farm of Strafford for donating the apples, Paul for bringing the press and helping, and Matt for showing how it’s all done.

Care for breast cancer patients

Concord, NH, area troops 20507,10162, 60180, 61435, and 60264 decorated the covers of breast cancer journals for The Pink Revolution, a nonprofit that helps breast cancer patients get through chemotherapy.
