The Girl Scouts of Service Unit #62 (Dunellen/Green Brook), took part in their annual celebration of World Thinking Day. This is a global day of awareness within the Girl Scout community.
World thinking Day is celebrated globally on February 22 every year. Girl Scouts and Girl Guides in 146 countries celebrate on this day. A global theme is designated each year, “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion” was the theme for 2020.
Green Brook Middle School was the site of this year’s celebration held February 28, 2020. The hosting Troops 65032 and 65038 of Green Brook planned a fun packed event for over 95 scouts from both towns. Participating troops each represented a country that participates in the World Association of Girl Guides & Girls Scouts (WAGGGS). Each troop presented aspects of their chosen country. The girls research their country and offer table displays of facts, flags, and foods that are representative of its culture. The girls also present a respectful skit, dance or song to their fellow troops, educating them about their country and/or customs.
