Happy to be back to troop

Girl Scout Brownie Selena of Raymond, NH, and her cousin Gianna enjoyed their first Girl Scout meeting of the year.

Troop enjoys trip to upstate New York

Girl Scout Troop 30474 of Monkton, VT, took a trip to Pulaski, NY, in July, where they got to enjoy the waterfront, solved an escape room puzzle, saw amazing scenery, and more. The girls learned how to manage time and money, and created strong friendships on the trip.

Daisies have a big year planned

Alison Scheiderer took Girl Scout Troop 61345, who meet in Concord, NH, to visit the New Hampshire Enhanced 911 center in August. Alison said, “As a new troop, we have a lot of "firsts' planned for the fall: apple-picking, a corn maze, bridging two of our girls to Brownies, touring the fire department, and learning from troop members about asthma and epilepsy to earn our Safety Awards, beginning to learn about engineering and making model cars at the SEE Science Center among other things. All of our meetings thus far have been outdoors - and it’s a good thing since our girls love to be active. Their favorite things about scouting so far are scavenger hunts and the Banana Song. They are also all really stoked to learn how to build a campfire, wash dishes and cook their own food during our campout.”

Bio-Fabulous baking

Aurora is a Girl Scout Brownie from Florida who joined us for the Bio-Fabulous patch program online. She was amazed to see how bread rose in the oven! She added food coloring on top before baking, and used a thermometer to see that the bread to go 200 degrees.

Pinwheels for Peace

The Girl Scouts of Troop 51442 of Danville, VT, made and displayed pinwheels with messages of peace on the Danville Green as part of Pinwheels for Peace, a worldwide project to celebrate the International Day of Peace. Pinwheels for Peace is an art and literacy project which began with two art teachers in Florida as a way for students to express their feelings about what’s going on in the world and in their lives. The project has grown from 500,000 pinwheels in 2005 to over four million in locations all over the world in 2019!

Last winter, Troop 51442 began working remotely on the Pinwheels for Peace project as part of the Girl Scout Peacebuilding badge. The girls made pinwheels, signed a Peace Pledge and wrote a Peace Song for the troop. When asked what peace means to them, they said, “Kindness, happiness, equality, friendship, loyalty, and honesty.” Girl Scout Juniors also took part in planning the project, which included talking to community members and school staff, creating announcements, helping with a press release, and distributing posters.

Girl Scouts were able to enjoy a special night at a Fisher Cats baseball game earlier this month in Manchester, NH.
