Daisy Troop 72036 donating $100 to the Fox Hill library. The girls voted on where they would like to donate some of their cookie money and the library won. Mr. Murphy was psyched!



Brownie Troop 72030 is donating used books to Cradles to Crayons and donating cookies to the Burlington Food Pantry



Brownie Troop 69023 donated their cookies to Cookies for a Cause, sending cookies to our military abroad.



Troop 72036 donating a portion of our cookie proceeds to Nevins Farm in Methuen. The troop voted to donate to Nevins to support their animal rescue efforts.















At the end of October, Girl Scouts wear their costumes and visit the senior housing to bring goodies door to door. The girls gain a valuable experience in giving treats rather than receiving them all while making connections with elderly folks in their town.










Girl Scouts and their leaders honor our veterans by partaking in the ceremonies held on the town common on November 11th. At the conclusion of the services the girls handed out cards they made to say thank you to the service men and women who have given of themselves to serve for all of us.








Girls from troops 71590 & 71605 joined with other volunteers to in a National Public Lands Day event on Lovells Island. Public Lands Day involved nearly 180,000 volunteers giving service at over 2,000 public parks nationwide. The Burlington troops spent the morning serving as "weed warriors" pulling invasive weeds from the dunes on Lovells Island and then planted bulbs to make George Island even more beautiful next spring.
