In celebration of the birthday of Girl Scouting here are three fun facts you may not have known:
The first 18 girl members were registered on March 12, 1912 in Savannah, Georgia. The patrol names were Carnation and White Rose.
While she was still living Juliette Gordon Low personally presented each recipient of the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest award in Girl Scouts, with their award.
During the 1920’s the first Native American Girl Scout troop was founded with girls from the Onondaga Nation in central New York.
So, have some cake, have a troop party, or a service unit celebration, or share something you know about Girl Scouts with someone today in honor of the birthday of Girl Scouts!
