Silver Award completed! Maya, Mackenzie, and Jessica from Troop 60296 (together since 2nd-grade Brownies) earned their Girl Scout Silver Award!

The Girl Scouts set out to help Golisano Children's Hospital's child life team. Their original goal was to create 100 tag or sensory blankets. So how many did the girls make? A WHOPPING 386!!!

The blankets were delivered on Dec. 28 along with 3 boxes of comic books donated by a local comic shop so that older children had something to enjoy as well.

Amazing work, Girl Scouts! 💚

Please follow our current COVID guidelines regarding in-person meetings (found in the Member Essentials email, copies of the email available at gswnyblog.com). Some areas of council are under different restrictions than others. All submissions MUST show girls and families following all safety guidelines regarding COVID. Due to the fact that it is often impossible to tell who is in the same household visually, we are only accepting photos that show all girls and adults properly wearing masks and social distancing. We understand this limits the number and types of photos that can be submitted and will be accepted for posting, but due to the number of questions we have received about what is being depicted in photos we can currently only use photos clearly following the above rules. We apologize for any confusion and for the limitations this imposes, but we want to make sure we are clear about the safety of our members. We reserve the right not to post any photos for any reason.
