Members of Daisy Troop #28033 celebrated World Thinking Day (Feb. 22) by installing a “Pinwheels for Peace” display outside Mars Area Primary Center.
Troop members, including Mars Area Primary Center first-graders Bridgett Domski, Paige Vuckovich, Juliana White and Nora Wiley, and kindergartners Averie Baker and Madelyn Chiplock, as well as non-District students Brooklynn Burkovich, Norah Gehlmann, and Katelyn Thompson, planted colorful pinwheels around the school’s sign on Feb. 22.
“We’ve been talking a lot this year about how to be good neighbors and helpers in our schools and community,” says Becca Baker, troop co-leader. Therefore, in line with this year’s World Thinking Day theme, “Peacebuilding,” troop members decided to make pinwheels, emphasizing building peace within our community.
The World Association of Girl Guides & Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), along with Girl Scouts, has celebrated World Thinking Day since 1926. The annual event celebrates what it means to be a peacebuilder, an important component of the Girls Scouts global Movement.
