Mazes and bridges

Multi-level Girl Scout Troop 10424 of Gilford, NH, started out the new Girl Scout year with a trip to a corn maze and a bridging ceremony for the girls beginning a new level. The corn maze was at Moulton Farms, where they also enjoyed a horse-pulled wagon ride, a visit to the pumpkin patch, and donuts.

Fall hikers

The Girl Scouts of Troop 63154 of Randolph, VT, took their first hike at Smuggler’s Notch State Park.

Scarves and support for orphans in Ukraine

Girl Scouts in many troops in the Amherst, NH, area have created scarves with personal notes to send to Ukraine. Shown here are the Girl Scouts of Troop 60262. The project is part of an effort to raise money and support for the people of Ukraine spearheaded by Alex Ray of The Common Man.

Brownies make life better for cats

Girl Scout Brownie Troop 30287 of Windham, NH, made cat toys and brought them along with other donations to the Salem Animal Rescue League.

Packing in the fall activities

Alison Scheiderer, leader of Troop 61345 in Concord, NH, has had a busy start to the new membership year. She said “We have been working on our Wonders of Water and Between Earth and Sky Journeys this fall. We celebrated Girl Scouts Love State Parks weekend at Bear Brook State Park, where we did our Eco Learner/ Eco Friend badges. The picture shows girls checking that their fire is out. We participated in the Coastal Rompers Coastal Cleanup. We picked and learned about apples at Apple Hill farm in Concord. We visited the Concord Wastewater treatment plant to learn about all of the great work that bacteria do to break down waste. The troop decided that they want to collect trash, document it, and create posters about their efforts for their Take Action project. They began this on a hike on the Riley trails at Hoit Marsh in Concord and will continue this effort on hikes at our next couple of meetings.

“We welcomed two new members to our troop this fall and have invited a Juliette to join us on our outings, bringing us to a group of 18 Brownies and Daisies when we are all together! We manage this by using the Spond app for communication, including meeting RSVPs so that we can assure we always have enough volunteers and that our planned activity supports the number of people attending.” learned about concentric symmetry, bilateral symmetry, fractals, and more. She says “Girl Scouts rock!” Even her brother, who is trying to do his high school work, can’t help but look when she is so excited!

GSGWM G-Team in action

Our new G-Team, Girl Scouts who want to learn more about social media, TV, radio, and print, and help spread the word about Girl Scouting got off to a great start. Ambassador Alanna and Junior Wednesday helped the council make a TV public service announcement about joining Girl Scouts at Concord Community TV.

At the Girl Expo, Girl Scouts Ivy, Alanna, Wednesday, Annika, and Sehanya took photos as they became roving reporters at the event.
