Each year, Girl Scouts across the globe observe Thinking Day, a worldwide celebration of international friendships among the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. Traditionally, each troop participates in activities and projects with global themes to honor and learn about their sister Girl Scouts and Girl Guides around the world.
The theme for 2021 is “peace.” The Hopewell Valley Girl Scouts, from kindergarten to 12th grade, participated in peace-themed activities based on their Girl Scout troop level, from Daisy to Ambassador. Some girls created songs or skits, some practiced peacemaking and conflict resolution challenges, some signed a peace pledge, and all learned about peace heroes and notable peacemaking women.
With thanks to the Hopewell Branch of the Mercer County Library, the pinwheels on display there were made this month by the Girl Scouts, and represent each Hopewell Valley Girl Scout and her commitment to peace.
