GSNI recently received e-mails from Girl Scouts and Girl Guides requesting connecting with Girl Scouts in our council! Please read the emails below and contact the writer, if you are interested in the opportunity!
My name is Jennie Barton. I am a Troop Leader in Albuquerque, New Mexico (Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails). I have a Daisy Troop and a Brownie Troop. We are working on Flat Daisy and Flat Brownie project. We are looking for Daisy and Brownie troops in your area that might want to participate in this adventure with us. Could you please forward this information to troops in your council? We would like to get troops from all Councils to participate.
The Flat Daisy and Flat Brownie come from the children's book "Flat Stanley". It is the story of a young boy who gets flattened and mailed around the world. Our troops have made a Flat Daisy doll and a Flat Brownie doll. We will mail the doll and her journal to the troops interested in participating. They can do activities with her, then place pictures, badges, and stories into her journal. She is then mailed to the next troop. Troops will be able to see what adventures she has had along the way.
Troops that are interested would need to contact me. The best way to contact me is by email. Here is my contact information:
Jennie Barton, Troop 1680
Thank you for helping us to meet our goal of reaching every council,
Hi! I am a Girl Guide from Rugeley in England. My town is twinned with Western Springs in Cook County. I would like to find a Girl Scout Unit that I could get in contact with - my guides are interested in making friends from around the world. I recently went to the Centenary camp in New Jersey, which was absolutely amazing. I would really like to get in contact with a troop from there.
