Welcome to Girl Scout Week 2014!

By: Kim Dunne, Media Manager

gs weekYesterday, March 9, kicked off Girl Scout Week with Girl Scout Sunday.

Girl Scout Week is held every year the week of March 12, the anniversary of Girl Scouts! On March 12, 1912, Juliette Gordon Low registered the first 18 girls to be Girl Scouts in her hometown of Savannah, Georgia. Girl Scout Week is a great time to celebrate the heritage and history of Girl Scouts with your girls. This year we are celebrating our 102nd birthday!

During Girl Scout Week will also celebrate Girl Scout Sunday and Girl Scout Sabbath. These are opportunities for girls to attend their place of worship and to be recognized as a Girl Scout. Sometimes girls will perform a service, such as a greeting, ushering, or doing a flag ceremony.

We hope you’re celebrating Girl Scout Week! Whatever you’re doing – make sure you let us know by sending us photos and stories of what you did so we can share them with our members! E-mail your photos to kdunne@gsnypenn.org.
