Celebrate Girl Scout Week

Happy Birthday to us!

Girl Scout Birthday is just around the corner! On March 12, 1912, Juliette Gordon Low officially registered our first 18 girl members in Savannah, Georgia. Her vision for Girl Scouting is as meaningful today as it was nearly 100 years ago.

Several local city councils have issued proclamations recognizing this year’s Girl Scout Week (March 7-13). During this happy time of year, the community celebrates our efforts and the accomplishments of our Girl Scouts—our future leaders of America and the world! I am proud to accept to accept these public recognitions on behalf of our council’s other 12,500 adult volunteers.

Board President Solveig Deuprey and I just returned from a national conference of Girl Scout CEOs and chairs. We’re happy to report that Girl Scouting is alive and well across our country. Just like Juliette Low, our leadership is deeply concerned about girl issues and dedicated to keeping programming relevant. Juliette’s legacy was evident in the energy at the conference and the continuing commitment to delivering a high quality Girl Scout experience. She would be proud of the passion we all continue to have for Girl Scouting. We are truly making a difference in girls’ lives every day.

Let’s celebrate everything we’ve accomplished since that first Girl Scout gathering in Savannah. And thank you for all you do for Girl Scouting!

Jo Dee C. Jacob, CEO
