World Thinking Day is coming once again to South Pasadena. Hosted by South Pasadena Girl Scout Cadette Troop 16751, the event is set to take place at Marengo Elementary School on March 23, 2019. All levels of Girl Scouts are invited to attend the celebration as well as invited to participate.

Thinking Day is a day that girls and women from 146 countries celebrate being part of the global sisterhood that is Girl Scouts. Celebrated since 1926, it’s a day of international friendship, when Girl Scouts think about their “sisters” in all the countries of the world. It’s a way to celebrate with girls all over the world by doing the same activities. The 2018 Thinking Day theme is “Impact.” Girl Scouts are all about bringing positive change.

There are two ways your troop can participate: Junior, Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador troops can represent a country with an information booth. Daisy and Brownie scouts are invited to come as “travelers” and visit the countries represented. All paid participants will receive a passport and Thinking Day Fun Patch.

Countries represented at South Pasadena’s Thinking Day celebration last year were France, Ireland, Germany, Greece, New Zealand and the Philippines. Troops showcased countries with artifacts, displays showing facts and customs of the country, specialty food and SWAPS (Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere).

The event celebrates one of the most important parts of the Girl Scout Law – ”Be a sister to every Girl Scout.”
