Cadet Scouts mourn loss of Sandy Hook Scouts

The members of Cadet Girl Scout Troop 45018 were saddened to learn that eight of the girls who died in the shootings at Sandy Hook school were Girl Scouts, and that two of the boys who died had sisters who were Girl Scouts.

The local Scouts decided to join their Girl Scout sisters across the nation in sending their thoughts and well wishes to the families through the Trefoil Project being spearheaded by Girl Scouts in Connecticut. The girls wrote messages and wishes on trefoils, which symbolize the Girl Scout Promise, and incorporated them into a poster linking Oregon to Connecticut via the Trefoils.

“Our troop’s poster, along with the messages from Girl Scouts across the country, will be presented at a memorial service hosted by Girl Scouts of Connecticut in mid-January,” said troop leader Shelley Lorenzen. “Girls Scouts of Connecticut has set up a fund in honor of the Girl Scouts who died to assist girls in attending Girl Scout summer camp.”

Interested donors can access gsofct.org for instructions on how to give through PayPal. Donors should write Sandy Hook Girl Scout Campership Fund in the ‘What is this gift for?’ box.
