Send Well Wish to Newtown Girl Scouts

One of our troop member's aunt sent her this message from her friend Robin who apparently is the service unit manager for Newtown, CT.

Their troop is sending messages to them and she thought others may appreciate the information as well. It would be nice to let them know that Girl Scouts around the country and the world are thinking of them. Here is the forwarded message:

Dear Girl Scout family:
Girl Scouts of Connecticut is saddened to learn that eight Girl Scout Daisies and sons of two Girl Scout families have died as a result of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. We are devastated by these losses and will keep the families in our hearts.

Many of you have asked what you can do to help. Currently, we are planning a memorial service with the Newtown Service Unit in mid-January. At that time, we will be presenting thoughts, prayers, and well-wishes on trefoil art. If you or any of your troops would like to participate, please send these trefoils to our Hartford Service Center, c/o Trefoil Project, 340 Washington St. Hartford, CT 06106.

With love,
Robbin Allen
Newtown Service Unit Manager
