International friendship is an important part of being a Girl Guide! These Brownies from Pierrefonds made some new friends south of the border to celebrate World Thinking Day together and share in the sisterhood of Guiding:
The 2nd Northwood Brownies sent letters, drawings, pictures, ‘I LOVE GGC’ tattoos, crests, and two boxes of cookies (chocolatey mint and classic) to the Sterling Daisy Troop in Massachussetts, USA, for their World Thinking Day event. Sara, the Sterling Troop Leader said that her girls were so pleased with the package and had a great time representing Canada at International Night where all Girl Scout troops in their town choose a different country.
In return, the Brownies received a package from the USA including letters, drawings, crests and six boxes of delicious cookies. They enjoyed their gifts during their last Brownie meeting and hope to correspond with other girls around the world when they meet again in the fall.
Thank you to 2nd Northwood Brownie Guider Annie Ajemian for sending us this story and photos. If you are interested in guest blogging, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
