Dover girls enjoying first year as Girl Scout Daisies

Dover Troop 62042

New troop in Dover is making new friends and ready to learn

DOVER, NH – Girl Scout Troop 62042 has been very active since forming in December, learning life skills that will serve them well as they grow up. The troop includes 10 Daisies in first grade from the Dover area.

Troop leader Jody Bird said, “We started out slow with a goal of getting to know each other and forming new friendships, but over the last few months the girls have also learned about recycling and upcycling, identifying and celebrating each of their unique traits, ways to be kind and much more.  They did this all while busting out some sweet dance moves during our dance parties which the girls have deemed a requirement at every troop meeting. The girls most recently worked on their Respect Authority petal by visiting our local police station and touring the facility with one of our local police officers.”

She along with co-leader Mackenzie Eaton and the troop are looking forward to more fun outings, including local hikes, an engineering class and participating in their community's bridging ceremony.

Girls are welcome to join Girl Scouts any time of the year. Participate by joining an existing troop, forming a new troop, or even as an individual member. Find out more at
