GREENFIELD — The Hancock County Fairgrounds was abuzz with activity Sunday during a Girl Scout-themed multicultural event for kids.

Each February, Girls Scouts across the globe commemorate World Thinking Day, an event aimed at raising awareness of Scouting.

Locally, the event drew about 200 Girl Scouts on Sunday to the fairgrounds, where troops set up booths with a display about the state or country of their choice.

Sitting beside the Georgia booth was a woman wearing a special nametag – Juliette Low.

Her real name is Cheryl Curry, and she’s a regional membership director for the Girl Scouts; but Sunday, she was portraying the program’s founder, southern accent and all.

When Curry puts on her scouting hat and trench coat, she’s a decent lookalike for the woman featured on the inside of the World Thinking Day booklet.

“I kind of look like her, actually,” Curry said.
