Girl Scout Week

Girl Scout Week: March 6th to March 12th

Girl Scout Week begins Sunday, March 6th. During this week, our Holliston troops show our appreciation for members of the community and celebrate being Girl Scouts.

Wear your Uniform to School

This is our second year of a new, annual Holliston Girl Scout tradition — Girl Scouts wearing Girl Scout insignia to school. Celebrate Girl Scout week by wearing your uniform on Friday, March 11th.  Older Girls are welcome to wear a Girl Scout t-shirt.

Religious Services

Girl Scouts also have the opportunity to be recognized at our places of worship on Girl Scout Sunday and Girl Scout Shabbath. (Click here to see the flyer for Holliston Girl Scouts Worship Services (PDF)).

Balloons

All Girl Scouts can join in a Girl Scout tradition and celebrate the Girl Scout Birthday by tying a green ballon on their mailboxes. Balloons should go out at the beginning of Girl Scout Week on Sunday, March 6th

Balloons can be preordered at Fiske’s. If you provide a list of your girls’ first names to the staff at Fiske’s, girls can visit Fiske’s and pick balloons up at their convenience.

Appreciations

Part of our Holliston Girl Scout tradition is to show our appreciation to people who make a difference to our troops.  Troops are encouraged to participate in a way that is most meaningful to them.  If possible, please complete your appreciation during Girl Scout week but no later than the end of March.
