Scouts Celebrate World Thinking Day

On a recent February Saturday, Girl Scouts of all age levels, including a group of Girl Scout alumni from Exeter’s Riverwoods active independent retirement community, and volunteers from as many as 26 troops from around the Seacoast area, converged upon Exeter High School. They gathered to celebrate World Thinking Day, a day set aside to reflect on the connections among Girl Scouts and Girl Guides in 140 countries around the world. Each troop that attended the event chose a country, and built a display depicting interesting facts about their nation based on this year’s theme: Music and Dance from Here to There. All girls received a “passport” that they could get stamped as they visited all the “countries” represented. Part of the day’s fun included dressing up in national costumes, learning new dances, songs and playing instruments. Girls in Egyptian robes visited “China”, older Girl Scouts in Hogwarts outfits and mod clothing led Juniors, Brownies and Daisies in “London Bridges Falling Down”, a group of Daisy Girl Scouts banged on flat drums at the Greenland display, and you could see the blue berets of the Junior Troop that had picked France as their country, visiting Brazil and making masks for Carnival.

No Girl Scout event happens without an event service project; by mid-morning, six large bins and boxes were overflowing with food donations for St Vincent De Paul Food Pantry of Exeter. Food Pantry Chairperson Cleo Castenguay spoke at the opening ceremonies and thanked the group for their donations that will help those less fortunate in the area.

For more information about Girl Scouts, how to join or volunteer, or support by buying Girl Scout cookies, please visit the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains website, www.girlscoutsgwm.org.

During the Music and Dance World Thinking Day opening ceremonies, two girls, Samantha Lattime of Daisy Troop 13963 and Sara Watkins of Cadette Troop 22748, pictured above, were recognized for their collaborative winning designs for the event patch given out to all girl attendees.

  • 'A Midwinter Night's Scream'

    Sanborn Regional High School students put the “shake” back in Shakespeare during two public performances held in the school auditorium, celebrating Sanborn’s Shakespeare Month. Students found that Shakespeare was written to be performed, not to be read. The young men and women dedicated themselves to a month-long intensive workshop (more than twenty students) that culminated in ‘A Midsummer Night’s Scream’, written and directed by Donna Devlin-Young.
