Girl Scouts Enjoy Fall Activities

Reagan Smith Troop 1791, Amelia Smith, Troop 2772, Harper Dayton, Troop 2772

Girl Scouts in Larchmont-Mamaroneck have had a busy fall.  The girls started by participating in the local Tri-Municipal 9-11 ceremony by singing and reading the names of those lost on 9-11.  The following week they sang “It’s a Grand Old Flag” at the opening ceremony of Larchmont Day and volunteered throughout the event.   On September 24th, Girl Scouts again were found in Constitution Park at the Native Plant and Pollinator Festival, sharing information about native plants with the community.  


One of the highlights for local Girl Scouts this fall was attending Community Camping at Rock Hill Camp in Mahopac, the weekend of October 21st-23rd.  The weather was perfect and with clear skies the girls had a perfect view of Saturn and Jupiter during their Friday night Astronomy program, followed by hiking, boating and archery on Saturday.  Evening campfires with songs and s’mores made the weekend complete.


The Girl Scouts celebrated Halloween by marching in the Mamaroneck Spooktakular Ragamuffin Parade, handing out treats at the Florence Park Halloween Parade and by running a “Trick or Treat So Others Can Eat” food drive, resulting in 50 bags of groceries being donated to the HOPE Food Pantry.


November found troops attending programs at the Harbor Island Marine Education Center, greeting Veterans at Westchester County Airport as they returned from their Honor Flight trip to Washington DC, making fleece blankets for refugees and, as they do every year, visiting local veterans on Veterans Day.  The girls made thank you ornaments and decorated bags each containing a box of Girl Scout cookies and then headed out on Veterans Day to thank Larchmont-Mamaroneck veterans.   Nearly 400 veterans received a thank you from the Girl Scouts and a personal visit, if they were lucky enough to be home when the girls arrived.


Larchmont-Mamaroneck has a very active Girl Scout community with nearly 500 girls in 50 troops.  For more information on Girl Scouting, visit
