Girl Scouts Turn 100


Share post:

Monday, March 12 was the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America, which began on March 12, 1912 in Savannah, Georgia with a meeting of 18 girls and Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts.

To remember this very important event, the Girl Scouts of Verona met at the Verona Library to donate three books about Girl Scouting and to share a 100th anniversary craft
together. The donated books included Girl Scouts: A Celebration of 100 Trailblazing Years by Betty Christiansen; Lady From Savannah: The Life of Juliette Low by Gladys Denny Shultz and Daisy Gordon Lawrence; How Girls Can Help Their Country (100th Anniversary Edition) by W.J. Hoxie

The levels of Girl Scouts represented included Daisy, Brownie, Junior, and Cadette and included about 70 girls, all from Verona Girl Scout troops. The anniversary event began with the Pledge of Allegiance and recitation of the Girl Scout Promise and the Girl Scout Law, as does each Girl Scout meeting.
