Daisy troop in Windham is learning new skills and making friends
WINDHAM, NH – Girl Scout Troop 62987 has been very busy since forming late this fall, learning life skills that will serve them well as they grow up. The troop includes 11 Daisies in kindergarten and first grade in Windham.
Troop Leader Meaghan Gadbois said they have earned three petals, the equivalent of badges for this age level, and have many activities planned. They have learned about Girl Scout traditions and learned a special handkerchief dances thanks to a pen pal activity with a troop in New Orleans.
“We have local baker Alexa DiPrima coming from Cakes by Alexa to talk about running a business, and they’ll ‘buy’ supplies to decorate cookies,” she said. “They have outings planned to the fire station, Karate International and Nesmith Library. They want to use some of their earned cookie money to support the Millstone Wildlife Center.”
The girls are currently taking orders for this year’s Girl Scout Cookie season, with in-person sales beginning mid-February. You can help them by using the Girl Scout Cookie Finder at www.girlscoutcookies.org.
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 www.girlscoutsgwm.org.
Girl Scouts is here for them through it all. Cheering them on, lifting them up, celebrating their strengths. Today, tomorrow, together—we’re on their team.
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.
