Troop 24004 and 20258 spent their weekend at Ready Set Camp at Camp Timbercrest!
Troop 20094 traveled to Kennedy Fire Station for Brownies and Daisies to earn their first aid and safety badges and pins. Each girl went home with safety knowledge and how to help in an emergency. as well as making their own first aid kits!
While initial plans were to host outdoors, rain and colder temps aided in calling an impromptu indoor event for Troop 30391's bridging ceremony. With that said, the WNY Welcome Center was the perfect and fitting place for us to welcome our Brownies into Juniors! Congratulations to these girls! We look forward to seeing you take on new challenges and adventures.

GSWNY Board Member Lynnette Haley O'Stewart had the pleasure of meeting two Junior Girl Scouts, Fiona and Charleigh, from Williamsville Troop 30011 working on a project for their Bronze Award. The girls were outside their local Wal-Mart and were collecting personal hygiene items and monetary donations for the homeless individuals served by Buffalo's Hearts for the Homeless of WNY Inc. ®. Lynnette added, "They have put forth a lot of time and effort on this project. I was impressed with their enthusiasm and friendly approach talking with those who donated to their project. It was great to hear them talk about their project as people stopped by their booth set up at a local Walmart. I was so happy to donate!"
We had a great day with GEICO at their Getzville office. Girls learned about driving safety, distracted driving, and the general workings and maintenance of a vehicle!

"The Erie Canal proved vital to the early women’s rights and suffrage movements, with Stanton and other suffragettes using the Canal as a convenient and effective mode of transportation as they attempted to rally people behind their efforts to give women the right to vote." 🇺🇸🗳⚓️
