Operation Snowflake Thanks
Groton Girl Scout Troop 66109 thanks the Groton community for its support in helping with Operation Snowflake. This project took place this past December, following the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. Groton students, teachers, families, and businesses contributed handmade paper snowflakes to collection boxes around town and at the Main Street Café. They were delivered to the Connecticut PTA as a show of support last December.
Julie Somma, Enya Selders, and Chloe Ashburn have been awarded the Girl Scout Bronze Award for their Operation Snowflake service project. High School GS Juliette, Julia Mendel (not pictured) received a Silver Award.
The girls made, collected, organized and publized this project, and worked with the Newtown PTA to get the snowflakes to the school in a timely manner. The girls also met with local counselors regarding their project, impact of violence on schools, and what they can do to help prevent such violence.
