Sheridan Girl Scouts to Participate in World Thinking Day

Eighteen Sheridan area Girl Scouts will join at least 100 more Wyoming Girl Scouts at the Boys and Girls Club of Casper Saturday to participate in World Thinking Day.

The event launches world-wide observance of Girl Scout Week, which starts on Sunday.

The Sheridan Girl Scouts will be accompanied by 10 Sheridan adult volunteers. The adults include Flavia George, formerly of Brazil and now local consultant to the Sheridan Girl Scouts.

World Thinking Day, which has been a global Girl Scout Girl Guide tradition since 1926, involves troops from 150 member nations who reach out and learn about girls in scouting who live in another country.

The Sheridan girls, representing levels of scouting from Daisy to Senior Girl Scouts, have completed a multi-sensory informational booth about what they have learned about Brazil. The booth will feature samples of a popular Brazilian fudge-like treat made by Sheridan Ambassador troop 1333.

Cadet and Senior Girl Scouts also will wear colorful “carnival” masks and greet event participants in Portuguese, sing a nursery rhyme song in English and Portuguese and demonstrate a popular hopscotch-like game called Heaven.
