Girl Scouting appeals to all ages!

GSNC had the honor of hosting the women of Troop 400. This troop was brought about by Natalie D’Amico’s, Gold Award Take Action Project. She felt that Senior Citizens living in assisted living facilities may feel isolated from the world around them. Natalie’s solution was to establish Girl Scout Troop 400 for the women who live at the Bristol in Massapequa to provide them with a sense of community and sisterhood.  Some of the women were Girl Scouts as children and some were new to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.  

On Wednesday, June 26, Troop 400 took a trip to the GSNC Service Center to explore the history of the Girl Scouting movement in Nassau County. Carol Gorst, Chair of the Living History Committee, treated Troop 400 to a tour of the Living History displays which are exhibited throughout the Service Center. The members of Troop 400 also experienced “The Golden Eaglet”, a silent movie about Girl Scouting that was made after World War I, and enjoyed some delicious Girl Scout Cookies.

Their visit to the Girl Scouts of Nassau County just proves that Girl Scouting is for all ages!

If you are interested in preserving the History of the Girl Scout movement in Nassau County, the Living History Committee is looking for volunteers.  Come join them and tell our story to future generation of Girl Scout both old and yo
