    February 17, 2011

    World Thinking Day

    Each year World Thinking day is celebrated by girls across the globe on February 22. This year's theme is Millennium Development Goal 3: gender equality and empowering women.

    The mission of Girl Scouts and the focus for World Thinking Day 2011, is empowering girls to change our world. Troops across Eastern Massachusetts are exploring cultures and traditions in different countries, for example Troop 72371 in Ashland coordinated an International day where Girl Scouts performed an El Salvadorian dance, an Italian Skit, an Indian Baliwood dance and offered tasty treats such as croissants from a French booth.

    More thank thirteen troops from Natick hosted an international day, transforming the Elks Lodge into a little piece of Greece, Egypt, France and Switzerland. The Girls performed traditional dances, served delicacies such as Baklava, pita chips and educated those attending the event on the country they chose to study.

    Wareham Troops educated the community on different traditions celebrated in Australia, France and Ireland.

    Charlestown held their celebration on March 2nd. Those who participated in the festivities included Brownies, Juniors and Caddettes. Countries studied included Argentina, India, China, Cameroon and The Congo to name a few. The festivities had more than 100 guests.
