Happy 99th Birthday!

Happy Birthday Cake from the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta

Today is the 99th Birthday of Girl Scouting! Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low assembled 18 girls from Savannah, Georgia, on March 12, 1912, for a local Girl Scout meeting. She believed that all girls should be given the opportunity to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually. With the goal of bringing girls out of isolated home environments and into community service and the open air, Girl Scouts hiked, played basketball, went on camping trips, learned how to tell time by the stars, and studied first aid.

Share with us how have you been celebrating!

  1. I worked on organizing my own collection somewhat and posted an interesting note I had about the first uniforms and their actual colors.
