March 12 commemorates the day in 1912 when Juliette Gordon Low officially registered the first troop in Savannah, Georgia. This year is our 101th birthday!
We celebrate our birthday during Girl Scout Week, starting with Girl Scout Sunday and ending with Girl Scout Sabbath on Saturday. This weeklong celebration allows members of all faiths to celebrate on their chosen day of worship.
This year’s Girl Scout week is March 10 – 16.
The Girl Scout Council of the Southern Appalachians has created a flyer that can be distributed in worship bulletins, printed out double-sided and then cut and handed out as stand-alone flyers, shared through an electronic newsletter, or shown as part of an A/V presentation.
Click here for a printable version of the flyer. In the Girl Scout spirit of conservation, we are allowing each troop to print its own flyers, rather than ordering large quantities that are difficult to distribute and might go to waste. This flyer is a two-sided half sheet of paper.
Beyond distributing flyers, girls are encouraged to take an active role at their place of worship and be recognized as a Girl Scout. If a place of worship is the troop sponsor, girls may want to volunteer to perform a service such as greeting, ushering, or doing a flag ceremony.
