Burlington Girl Scouts Gathered for 'World Thinking Day'


Local Girl Scouts recently joined scouts around the world by participating in an event meant to celebrate the sisterhood they belong to and to think about ways to positively impact their communities.

On Sunday, February 25, Burlington Girl Scouts gathered Memorial School for the international World Thinking Day. World Thinking Day is in honor and recognition of the birthdays of the Boy Scout and Girl Guide founders Lord Robert Baden Powell and his wife Olave Baden Powell.  

World Thinking Day is a special day to remind all Girl Scouts and Girl Guides that they belong to an international sisterhood striving to make the world a better place, a release about the event states. This year's theme was "Impact," where girls focused on how they can make an impact on their community.

This year the scouts were greeted by State Senator Cindy Friedman who explained to them how she is making an impact in our community through her work in the state  government.

They also met with members of the Burlington High School chapter of  Girl Up, a global organization that envisions a world where every girl can live up to their utmost potential.

The girls also made no-sew blankets that were donate to the Lowell Transitional Living Center and collected donations for the Juliette Low Friendship Fund.
