Seventh grade Essex Girl Scout Cadette Troop 62041 participated in the Girl Scout River Unit World Thinking Day on Saturday, March 5, 2011 at the Essex Town Hall. Each Brownie or Girl Scout Troop presented a booth on a different country. Troop 62041 focused on Haiti. The girls grew interested in Haiti after volunteering at a Sister Cities Essex Haiti event at the Connecticut River Museum in the Fall of 2010. Jenifer Grant, Sister Cities Essex Haiti Board member, helped the girls prepare for their presentation by sharing information with them about the history, culture, food, school life, dance, music, and literature at one of their meetings. The girls now share pen pal letters with students in Haiti.
