4-State Girl Scouts educate each other about other countries

4-State girl scouts celebrate World Thinking Day

Local Girl Scout troops from Oklahoma, Missouri, and Kansas participated in a World Thinking Day event on Sunday in Joplin.

Each troop represented a different country, studying its history and sharing what they learned with the other girl scouts at the event.

The event was hosted by the Girl Scout Super Service Unit and around 10 to 12 troops attended.

World Thinking Day is celebrated every February around the globe, so Girl Scouts from different backgrounds and places can learn more about each other.

“It’s always great for our troops to get together and meet each other and have lots of time to share in the sisterhood that’s girl scouts. That way our older girls are teaching our younger girls all the valuable skills they’ve learned in girl scouts,” said troop leader Tina Franks.

This is the first year the World Thinking Day event was held in this format where all area girl scout troops got together.
