New troop in Charlotte is active in the community
CHARLOTTE, VT –Girl Scout Troop 62802 has been very active since forming at the end of this past summer, learning life skills that will serve them well as they grow up. The multi-level troop includes Daisies in kindergarten and first grade, Brownies in second and third grades, and Juniors in fourth grade.
Troop Leader Jasmine Darland said “We've been getting to know our Girl Scout heritage with the Girl Scout Way badge and a patch-based study of the Girl Scout law where each girl plans an activity around one component of it to lead for her troop sisters. We enjoyed learning some sign language in honor of Juliette Gordon Low's years as a deaf person and are planning a service project around disability rights. We've also done our Hiker, First Aid, and Eco Friend badges and are working on the It's Your World -- Change It! Journey.”
The Girl Scouts also made appreciation posters for public servants in Charlotte like fire fighters, postal workers, librarians, and delivered them along with some cookies and a song.
“We can't wait to do some cookie booths and participate in World Thinking Day with the service unit,” she said. “We're also looking forward to planning a cabin campout once all our Scouts are fully vaccinated and the community transmission rate is a little lower.”
“The troop welcomes new members any time, currently with room for more.
“We are looking forward to more adventures!” said Darland.

We Are Girl Scouts
Girl Scouts bring their dreams to life and work together to build a better world. Through programs from coast to coast, Girl Scouts of all backgrounds and abilities can be unapologetically themselves as they discover their strengths and rise to meet new challenges—whether they want to climb to the top of a tree or the top of their class, lace up their boots for a hike or advocate for climate justice, or make their first best friends. Backed by trusted adult volunteers, mentors, and millions of alums, Girl Scouts lead the way as they find their voices and make changes that affect the issues most important to them.

Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains serves girls throughout New Hampshire and Vermont through volunteer-run troops, events, and virtual programs. Visit www.girlscoutsgwm.org to learn more.
