Building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place

The World According to Evan reports that all November the George Washington Bridge debuted its green necklace lights. The green lights were installed to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts.

This is only the second color ever used on the necklace lights. What ways will your community be commemorating the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting?

Earlier this month, Erik Wander of New Jersey’s Fort Lee Patch reported that Girl Scout Councils in New Jersey held a ceremonial “bridging” event where thousands of girls, volunteers and alumnae crossed the George Washington Bridge from Fort Lee in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting.

“Bridging” is a traditional ceremony among Girl Scouts, signifying the passage from one level of scouting to the next, and organizers decided to do it on a large-scale this year to mark the organization’s passage into its own next century.
