Girl Scout Day
Girl Scout Day
We recently covered the history of the Boy Scouts and it is only fitting that we give you some history to this March 12 holiday, Girl Scout Day.

Celebrating the Girls Scouts of America, this holiday marks the date Juliette Gordon Low registered the organization’s first 18 girl members in Savannah, Georgia, creating the first official Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912.

Their wildly popular selling of Girl Scout Cookies as an annual fund raising event supports many of the girl’s scouting activities. The Girl Scouts is an organization that teaches girls and young women values such as honesty, fairness, courage, compassion and citizenship through activities and to build self-esteem. The girls and their achievements are recognized by a variety of special awards and patches.

Also known to many as Girl Scout Week, this holiday for girls always includes March 12!
