Girl Scouts Go Broadway

New York's Long Island Herald reports that Girl Scout Daisy Troop 1343 sang and danced to a song from the musical “Hairspray” recently at the West Hempstead/ Franklin Square Girl Scout Association’s “Broadway Musicals Night” at the Washington Street School in Franklin Square. Local troops gathered and performed Broadway-inspired skits for the Girl Scouts’ annual celebration “World Thinking Day” - a special day for girl scouts and guides from around the world to give thanks and appreciation to other scouts.

After the troop’s performance, each of the girls earned her red Daisy petal patch for being “courageous and strong.” Jennifer Camacho, co-leader of Troop 1343, said the group received tremendous feedback from those in attendance.

“Troop 1343 now plans on taking its show on the road, and is in the process of organizing visits to local nursing homes to perform for the elderly,” Camacho said. Awesome!
