Busy Merrimack Daisies

Girl Scout Daisies in Troop 61222 of Merrimack, NH, have been super busy, earning petals, Journey, and even the Summit Journey pin this past fall. They started their year off by earning the Buddy Camper badge, participated in Wreaths Across America, and helped clean up a local park – just a few of their activities.

Snowshoes, sleds, and smiles

Plymouth, NH Troop 62526 made the most of a snowy day at the end of January at their Community Winter Fun Day at Plymouth Regional High School.

Girls are rocking the state capitols

Right, the Girl Scouts in the New Hampshire program take a moment to gather in the State House lobby.

Brownies take action in Londonderry

Girl Scout Troop 60259 of Londonderry, NH’s, core values and drum beat are community and giving back. The troop has toured the Town Hall, donated mums, and donated cookies and goody baskets to their police and fire departments. The tours have provided the girls a sense of understanding the community around them and how the town runs.

In October, the troop journeyed into something a big larger. They focused October around a sock drive coined SOCKTOBER. The troop worked with each elementary school and town officials. Each girl made a box and read a letter to their class asking for new socks donations for those in need in our local community. The troop exceeded their goal of 500 pairs, collecting over 1,000 socks to donate.

In November, the girls provided a full Thanksgiving meal to a family of six, and in December donated coats and toys to a local family. At each meeting, these girls also donated food items for the local Blessing Box in town, a box that provides free items to those in need.

Most recently, the troop decided to make full Girl Scout Cookie baskets for each of the elementary nurses’ office in town as a surprise and delight to thank them for all their hard work, care and dedication while on the front lines in our schools.

These girls are so proud seeing their efforts make a difference. The practice of giving back and kindness are values to carry for a lifetime.

It’s Girl Scout Cookie season!

“Little bakers” sell Girl Scout Cookies

Cookie love on Valentine’s Day
