Troop Spotlight: December 2022


Girl Scouts around our council are always active – camping, traveling, doing service projects, and making the world a better place. 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. Send your photos to us at Be sure to include a description of the event, your troop number and levels involved, when it took place, and any other relevant information.

Camping out then Florida fun

Cadette Girl Scout Troop 10162 of Concord enjoyed a camping trip in May so they could afford a trip to Orlando, Florida, in October. The girls had a great time camping and bike riding together. They loved their site at White Lake State Park. The site had an Adirondack that the girls ate in when it rained and used as a stage for a talent show one night. They also spent a day in North Conway walking around downtown.

In Florida, they developed new skills like traveling without parents, packing reasonably for flying and focused on people skills, with limited electronics for many days. They got to visit Universal Studios and the club house at the Air BnB. The girls got to do things they may not have tried before, like going on large rollercoasters.

Bedford Brownies donate toys

Troop 58110 of Bedford, NH, used proceeds from a holiday craft fair to purchase toys for the toy drive at their elementary school.

Paint Night pride

Girl Scout Troop 60259 of Londonderry, NH, enjoyed a painting outing this month. Paint events foster a positive environment for exploring and expressing creativity. The focus isn't on being perfect or creating a masterpiece; instead, the focus is on having fun and expressing yourself with your troop. This also complete work for paint badges.

Pottery pros

The Brownies of Troop 30456 of St. Albans, VT, had a great time earning their Pottery badge.

Leader Sarah Blow said, “I found while I was attempting to teach the pottery badge I am not an expert in everything and wanted to make sure the girls got to really experience pottery. So after the meeting I went home and did some Google searching and found Burlington City Art Studios in Burlington, VT. I was able to contact them and set up a night for the Brownies to go in and learn from someone who knew what they were doing and had all the equipment for them to use. Even us leaders got to try out the wheel. It was so much fun, they were awesome with the girls and the girls learned so much. In a couple of weeks I will be picking up their two pieces they got to make. They glazed and fired them.”

Note: They also offer a discount for nonprofits and there are scholarship opportunities as well.

Santa’s helpers

Raymond Girl Scout Troop 10427 joined the Raymond PTO to put on a Santa’s workshop for the elementary school. After the kids shopped, the Girl Scouts helped the younger kids wrap up the gifts for everyone.

Girl Scout float wins People’s Choice

Girl Scouts of the Green & White Mountains Service Unit 223 worked tirelessly to get their "1950s Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" float ready for a parade in Rochester, NH, and it paid off - they were the People's Choice for 2022 and took home a plaque and bragging rights!

Girl Scout sisterhood

Three Girl Scout troops came together in Raymond, NH, to help set up, prepare, serve, and clear tables at a family-style dinner party at the local Masonic Lodge. Jennifer Bateman, leader of Troop 10247, said they had a few younger girls who were uneasy around strangers, but Cadette Hailey took Daisy Abby under her wing to show her what to do in the kitchen. Together, they built up confidence and were able to overcome her fear of the crowd. As a Girl Scout, you always have a “big sister” looking out for you!

Caroling in Concord

Girl Scouts from Troops 20507 and 20492 provided true holiday spirit by caroling at Concord, NH’s, Midnight Merriment event.

Baking for good

On November 17, girls from Troop 30357 spent their meeting time baking cupcakes and quick bread to donate to local organizations to help with Thanksgiving dinner. The girls are Daisies - Juniors. On Nov 22, the girls delivered the baked goods to both the American Legion and the Good Samaritan Haven shelter both in Barre, VT.

Making spirits bright

Nashua Troop 51595 wanted to do something special for their community for the holidays. They worked together and came up with the perfect way to give back: stuff stockings for homeless teens and young adults who are affiliated with Stepping Stones in Nashua. Stepping Stones is a place where homeless youth can always get the basics they need - a safe place to rest, food, use showers and bathrooms, have a place to keep their stuff, and have someone to talk to.

The girls collected many needed items to place in the stockings for over a month. They also shared with family, friends and neighbors what great work Stepping Stones is doing for their community. Some of the items they collected are: shampoo, conditioner, lotion, razors, shaving cream, Chapstick, socks, gift cards, long johns, tissues, chocolate Santas, knitted hats, soap and more. They also wrote inspirational positive notes in holiday cards to be placed in the stockings.

Parade of lights

Troop 30456 participated in the annual tractor parade of lights in St. Albans, VT, on December 9. All the Girl Scouts, from Daisy on up, worked together as a troop to make it happen.

Celebrating the season

Troop 59095 in Jaffrey and Rindge, NH, had a wonderful winter ball where the girls dressed up and brought someone special to share the event with on December 4. On December 18, Santa came to visit the troop and they had a Secret Santa gift exchange. The troop also started gearing up for cookie season.

Christmas carolers

Girl Scout Troop 10427 of Raymond, NH, visited the local nursing home to sing Christmas carols to all the residents. Even Santa got in on the singing with the girls. They handed out Christmas cards to all the residents. Each card was signed with special messages and pictures to brighten their holidays.

Honoring our fallen veterans

Hailey of Raymond, NH, Troop 10427 participated in Wreaths Across America on December 17.

Fostering good will toward all

Troop 60180 from Loudon, NH, sold handmade ornaments and made enough money to buy gifts for 21 kids in foster care for this holiday season.

The giving spirit

Troop 60259 of Londonderry, NH, kept their drumbeat of giving alive. They donated over 100 coats and new clean socks to two local organizations to help those in need!
