girl scouts celebrate their 100th anniversary today!

on march 12, 1912, juliette gordon low established the first girl scout troop in savannah, georgia. during the subsequent 100 years more than 5 million girls and women have participated in girl scouts, with over 3 million currently involved in the scouting program!

i'm a huge fan of scouting (both boy and girl) - having participated in boy scouts (and explorer scouts) for most of my teen years.  the family tradition was kept up by katie, who has been a girl scout since her days in elementary school.  one highlight of her scouting career will take place later this month, at the county center, when she and the other recipients will receive their gold awards!

so to girl scouts everywhere - here's to another successful hundred year run!
