Coosa Valley Area Girls Celebrate World Thinking Day

On February 22 ten local troops celebrated Girl Scout World Thinking Day in Chelsea, AL with the Golden Chain of Friendship, a symbol of connection between girls throughout the world. As each scout adds a link to the chain, she thinks about Sister Scouts in other countries and how they might be different from her local troop. Girls also sampled food from over 10 different countries.

In addition, this gathering served as a health awareness event to "Make The World A Better Place". The scouts contributed caps & hats for Children's Hospital cancer patients and participated in workshops on asthma and anti-smoking.
