Concord-Carlisle Girl Scouts hold annual Thinking Day event

On Sunday, February 10, approximately 60 Girl Scouts from Concord andCarlisle joined at the Concord Scout House to celebrate the 90th Anniversary of Girl Scouts. The theme of the celebration was "Girl Scouts - 90 years of making the world a better place".

Scouting has a long tradition of employing songs to celebrate, buildcamaraderie, learn new things, and pass time around the campfire. On Sunday, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade troops led the other Scouts in their favoritesongs and the Scout House reverberated with music.

The Girl Scouts also took this opportunity for community service, anothercornerstone of the Scouting program. Each girl made a Valentine card for a veteran at the Edith Nourse Veteran's Hospital in Bedford. In addition, families brought non-perishable food to the program for donation to alocal shelter.

Concord-Carlisle has a very active Girl Scout program that includes over 400 girls from kindergarten through high school. The program focuses on fourgoals: becoming the best person you can be, respecting other people,building values and building leadership skills. Camping, service and trips are three major aspects of Scouting that provide opportunities for girls to develop their potential. The Concord-Carlisle Girl Scouts thank members of the communities of Concord and Carlisle and the Girl Scout families for buying Girl Scout cookies and providing moral support.
