TRUCKEE, Calif. — Did you know the Girl Scout sisterhood not only stretches across the United States but spans the entire world?

Girl Scouts of the USA is part of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, which includes 10 million girls in 146 countries.

In celebration and recognition of girls working toward making the world a better place, more than 100 local Truckee Girl Scouts recently gathered for World Thinking Day.

At this annual February event, girls aged 5 to 17 participated in activities and food sampling with global themes to honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in other countries.

It is a special day in the Girl Scout year when all remember our part in a worldwide movement to become girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.

Girl Scouting spans the school years and can participate in Girl Scouting beginning in Kindergarten as a Daisy and then graduate to Brownie, Junior, Cadette, Senior and eventually Ambassador after high school graduation.
