Local Girl Scouts help celebrate 100 years

By on March 14, 2012

Denver and Adamstown troops marked the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting last week by assisting in a worship service at Peace United Church of Christ.

On March 11, Cadette Senior Troop 70244, Junior Troop 70203, Brownie Troop 70151 and Daisy Troop 70147 celebrated the 100-year anniversary of Girl Scouting by participating in the church worship service at Peace United Church of Christ in Denver. The troops are from Adamstown and Denver.

They served as greeters and readers, received the offering and provided special music. Girl Scouts, both past and present, were invited to join in the singing. A special fellowship hour was held after the service, with the girls providing special treats and offering Girl Scout cookies for sale

March is also Women’s History Month. Juliette Low organized the first troop on March 12, 1912, and Girl Scouts of USA was chartered by the U.S. Congress on March 16, 1950. Since that time, more than 50 million American women have enjoyed Girl Scouting, and today they continue to be inspired, challenged and empowered by Girl Scouting in more than 92 countries.
