The Girl Scouts 110th Anniversary


Juliette Gordon Low (on right) with members of the first Girl Scout troop

 In 1912 when Juliette Gordon Low brought that first group of girls together in Savannah, Georgia, she was determined to let them explore new possibilities and marvel at the amazing world around them and she wanted them to do it together.

With Juliette Gordon Low, also called “Daisy,” these first Girl Scouts blazed trails and redefined the possibilities for girls across the globe. The girls played basketball. They hiked, swam, and camped. They were taught to recognize time using the stars. They also were awed by excitement and believed that they were able to do everything. Just like Girl Scouts do across the nation and across the globe in the present, they extended assistance to the needy and worked with others to improve their local area.

This week between March 6 and 12, Girl Scouts celebrate 110 years of their organization. On March 12, 1912, the founder Juliette Gordon Low organized the first Girl Scout troop in Savannah, Ga. Since that time, Girl Scouts has grown to over two million girls and 500,000 adult members. Over the past century since its founding, Girl Scouts has been a force for good. Girl Scout organization has built girls with courage, confidence, and character. They help make the world an even better place.

Girl Scout Week is celebrated in March. It starts by celebrating Girl Scout Sunday on March 6 and culminating by celebrating Girl Scout Sabbath on a Saturday the 12th of March. The birthday of the official Girl Scout is observed on March 12.
