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 email@example.com.
Be sure to include a description of the event, your troop number and
levels involved, when it took place, and any other relevant
Goodies for Elliot Hospital workers
Girl Scout Troop 10427 of Raymond, NH, filled 70 tote bags filled
with goodies and handmade cards to bring to nursing staff. In
addition, they made 50 goodie bags to hand out to the security staff,
transport team, secretaries and front lobby staff, and of course the
Dunks team members! Hailey D. was able to hand deliver each surprise
to hospital staffers and put a smile on their faces.
“Being a Girl Scout has helped my daughter with the confidence to be a leader and help her community in a positive way,” said Jennifer Bateman. “Thank you, Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains!”
"Making others happy makes me feel even better," said Hailey.

One busy troop
The Girl Scouts of Troop 61345 in Concord, NH, have been busy all
year. Troop leader Alison Scheiderer shared these photos, and
“On May 1 we were at NH Audubon working on our World Thinking Day awards - wrong time of year, but that's when we could fit it in. We made models of the North Pole in plastic containers with Play-Doh and simulated melting glaciers with ice cubes that melted into our models while we did other activities. We explored the short educational trail at NH Audubon and learned about climate change and trees and their importance.
“On May 15 we went to NH Audubon in Concord and worked with Shelby Morelli, their education coordinator. We cleared brush from around American chestnut saplings, filled bags with dirt to help sheet mulch the space that will be their new pollinator meadow, and raked gravel out of the bayberry plantings that function as bird food and parking lot medians. This work day had been planned as a garlic mustard pull, but they - fortunately for the land - couldn't find any for us to remove, so we did other necessary work instead.
“On May 22, we went to the Epsom library and worked with a Master Gardener in training to revive neglected landscape plantings and plant beans and tomatoes in their Children’s Garden. It was a really hot day, so our two hours of gardening also included two popsicle breaks and a water fight.
“A local third grader, Sam Savastano, grew all of the plants that we planted from seed and sold them as a fundraising project for area animal rescue organizations. He donated the plants that we used to us for use at the library.”
Bridging, parade, and rollercoasters
Troop 61845 of Essex Junction, VT, has finished up their time in
Daisies with some great activities! On May 7, participated in the
rollercoaster design event in Rutland. The girls loved their first
field trip and exploring the museum.
On May 28, the troop joined the Memorial Day parade in Essex Junction.
The Daisies bridged to Brownies on June 5, celebrating with pizza, cotton candy, Girl Scout-themed brownies, face painting, glitter tattoos, and mini golf.
Leader Marie Daneau said, “Everyone had a great time and it was the perfect way to wrap up our Daisy careers!”
Celebrating a great year
On June 15, Troop 60419 located in Woodstock, VT, had its
end-of-year ceremony and bridging. The girls celebrated their
accomplishments, their successes, and the fact that they met over 40
times in their first year back together.
“We had tremendous growth as a troop this year, from two girls to 16 girls, and shared some amazing adventures!” said troop leaders Kristina Waters, Jane Warren, and Mary Lawrence. “We could not be more proud of these girls and wanted to share this photo.”
Pizza and ice cream party
Daisy and Brownie Troop 62281 from Hooksett, NH, ended the year with a pizza party at Johnny's Pizza and ice cream at the Brick House in Hooksett on June 15.
Bridging in Boston
Troop 10246 of Salem, NH, bridged from Cadettes to Seniors at the bridge in the Boston Public Garden. They also enjoyed the swan boats and walked around the city sightseeing, went to Go Pixel Yourself in Cambridge, and to the Melting Pot. It was a great celebration of bridging and graduating eighth grade.
Troop 61345 of Concord, NH, enjoyed Play Ball! Night at the Fishercats baseball game on June 18. Other Girl Scouts were at the game, as well.
