Girl Scouts of Minnesota Wisconsin Lakes and Pines Brainerd Troop No. 852 Thursday hosted World Thinking Day at the Brainerd High School.

World Thinking Day is a way to celebrate with girls all over the world by doing the same activities, the Girl Scouts website stated.

Troop 852, consisting of BHS sophomores Maddie Anderson, Jenna Lee and Mackenzie Stockinger, led the event off with a flag ceremony in front of nearly 80 Girl Scouts in kindergarten through eighth grade. At the event, each of the Girl Scout troops presented on a country of their choice. Countries included Italy, Norway and Wales, with information on the Girl Scouts in that country and about the country's culture.

Troop 852 has attended World Thinking Day since first grade, and they have hosted it for the past three years. The event was founded by Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of Girl Scouts.

The theme for World Thinking Day this year is "Impact."

"An impact is to have an direct positive effect on others, and the world around us," Lee stated in a news release. "It's fun to watch the other girls grow and learn about other countries."

When asked what their favorite part about World Thinking Day, Elsie Bredmore, 9, stated, "I really like the treats."

Kaylin Schey, 12, stated, "The food and traveling around the world with her friends" was the best part of the event.

Marietta Redepenning,11, stated she enjoys getting to know facts about all of the countries.
