PARTICIPATE IN THE TREFOIL PROJECT
In a recent statement GSUSA CEO, Anna Maria Chávez wrote:
We’ve “learned that eight of the twelve girls who died in the shooting [at Sandy Hook Elementary School] were Girl Scouts and that two Girl Scout families lost sons. The girls were Girl Scouts Daisies who wore their uniforms proudly. The loss of any child brings with it an especially hollowing pain; to know that all of us in our Movement shared with those girls a love of Girl Scouting makes it all the more personal—and heartbreaking.”
Our sisters at Girl Scouts of Connecticut will host a memorial service with the Newtown Service Unit in mid-January. At that time, they will share thoughts, prayers and well-wishes in the form of trefoil art. Girl Scouts across the nation are invited to write or create art within the shape of the Girl Scout trefoil and send them to:
Hartford Service Center
c/o Trefoil Project
340 Washington St.
Hartford, CT 06106
Please take time to share this opportunity with your Girl Scouts and send your love to our sisters in Connecticut. For more resources and information about the Trefoil Project, visit Girl Scouts of Connecticut online.
