World Thinking Day

Please join us in celebrating the 100thyear of Girl Scouting in USA by attending a very special World Thinking Day. World Thinking Day is a day when we think about our "sisters” in all the countries of the world, the meaning of Scouting, and its global impact. The theme this year is “We Can Save Our Planet!”.

World Thinking Day 2011
Feb 24, 2012
6-7:30 pm
Jr. High

COUNTRY: Egypt

VOLUNTEER: I am looking for 1-2 parent volunteers to head this event. This would involve working with the girls during a meeting to plan and implement our booth. It does not have to be anything elaborate. Ideas: 3-sided poster display, food, clothing, anything to do with girl scouts (girl guides) in Eqypt and their girl scout traditions, and possibly tying something to do with saving the planet into the theme as well (may be too hard?), activities for visitors to participate in (game from that country, coloring, craft, etc) or any other idea you may have!

SWAPS: Feel free to make SWAPS based on Eqypt, girl scouts in general, or anything you want, even if it doesn't have to do with Eqypt or world thinking day. They suggest making 10-20 SWAPS. (see links for ideas at bottom of post)

COST: Elaine and I have decided that the troop will cover the cost of the event. HOWEVER, if you confirm that you daughter is attending, but does not actually attend, we will need you to reimburse the troop $4 for the cost of the event.


NEEDED: If anyone has a stamp that has a pyramid or sphinx or anything "Eqypt"-like on it, we would love to use it for the event. Otherwise, I will just do what I did last year and make our stamp look like a "passport" type stamp for their passports.

RSVP: please rsvp via email to Tammy by Sunday Jan 22

**World Thinking Day is a requirement for what is called our Program Essentials (things we are requested to do during the year). If your daughter cannot attend, I will research other activities she can do to make up for this night.
