Because Girl Scouts all over the world will be blowing out the birthday candles in a big way next year to celebrate “The Year of the Girl,” the Girl Scout Council of the Southern Appalachians is working hard to make 2012 a jam-packed, fun-filled year.
We know that you are curious about how we will celebrate the 100th anniversary, so here are a few events that you will learn more about in the coming months:
