In Ohio, the Bucyrus Telegraph Forum reports that Girl Scouts from Crestline, Galion, and Bucyrus gathered February 20 to celebrate World Thinking Day. Sixty-seven girls that are Brownies, Junior and Cadette Girl Scouts along with several parents, grandparents and leaders "traveled" around the world learning about other countries and sampling foods. The program began with a flag ceremony and greeting, "Willkommen auf denken tag!" which is German and means "Welcome to Thinking Day." Everyone played a game that allowed facts to be shared about different countries. Among other things, each girl had a passport that was stamped as she traveled from country to table.
In Kansas, the Basehore Sentinel reports that about 150 Girl Scouts from throughout northeast Kansas traveled around the world Saturday morning, but they did not have to go any farther than the Lake of the Forest Clubhouse in Bonner Springs. In addition to the Pledge of Allegiance and Girl Scout Promise being recited at the beginning of the event, the Bonner scouts conducted a candle-lighting ceremony to honor the differences among Girl Scouts around the world. The troop also invited members from the Ethnic Enrichment Commission of Kansas City to set up booths and bring food for all the attendees to try.
