Junior Girl Scout Troop 129 of Oak Hill Elementary School hosted a World Thinking Day celebration for all the girl scouts at the school on Saturday. The scouts represented four of the countries that are this year's focus from the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGS), which included Guyana, Tunisia, Japan and Ivory Coast.
The scouts presented information about the culture and scouting in those countries. The junior scouts also gathered donations for their Bronze Award Service Project from the Oak Hill scout community.
The donations benefited Project School Supplies to support their mission in Honduras. Items donated included school, medical, and hygiene supplies as well as small games and books. Some donated change to help defray shipping costs. Foods from many countries were shared by all the scout troops for the girls to sample.
The event reflected the spirit of World Thinking Day to reach across country boundaries to learn about, and support, scouts and people in need in other countries. The day was a great experience for the girls and enjoyed by all!
