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 customercare@girlscoutsgwm.org. Be sure to include a description of the event, your troop number and levels involved, when it took place, and any other relevant information.


Guinea pig love

Girl Scout Troop 10427 of Raymond, NH, donated bedding, food, and supplies to the Guinea Pig Sanctuary in Salisbury, MA. They currently have 350 rescued and surrendered guinea pigs. They were able to help clean up, feed, and hold the piggies; received a tour; and got all of their questions answered.

Leader Jennifer Bateman said “It was so much fun to see the girls enjoy themselves while learning so much.”

Nottingham Daisies explore their world

Troop 62216 of Nottingham, NH, has been busy visiting new places and exploring science themes. In December they visited the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center and marched as bakers in a local parade.

In January, the girls made slime, assembled first aid kits, and visited their local fire station.

Perfect pizza makers

Nashua Girl Scout Troop 51605 enjoyed an early morning tour at Blaze Pizza in Nashua on February 12. The girls learned everything from safe food handling and sanitation all the way through step-by-step to how to make the perfect pizza. Their favorite part was learning about how the oven can cook their perfect pizza in just three minutes and, of course, eating their pizzas at the end.

Merrimack troop shows the love

Troop 62031 of Merrimack, NH, made 50 valentines for Meals on Wheels recipients. The girls learned about Meals on Wheels, what they do for the community, and how we can spread joy to those in need. The Girl Scouts also made pet blankets and toys that they donated to the Animal Rescue League in Bedford, NH, as the Daisy/Brownie troop worked on their Brownie Pets badge and their 3 Cheers for Animals Journey. The materials for these projects were mostly funded by the troop’s Fall Product sales.

Walpole around the world

Community 200 held its International Festival on February 19 at the Walpole, NH, Town Hall. It was attended by troops 62200, 59010, 13028, 20902, 59786, and 62168. These Girl Scouts did presentations on Germany, Ireland, Scotland, Thailand, France, and Japan.
