Today, Katie Reifsteck, leader of Troop 5055, shares the story of how Girl Scouts in her troop celebrated Girl Scout Week.
Our troop has 6 girls, all 4th graders. Each year we set aside time to talk about Girl Scouts, who we are and what we mean, what we can do in the world to make it a better place.
Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low assembled 18 girls from Savannah, Georgia, on March 12, 1912, for a local Girl Scout meeting. She believed all girls should be given the opportunity to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually. With the goal of bringing girls out of isolated home environments, and into community service and the open air, Girl Scouts hiked, played basketball, went on camping trips, learned how to tell time by the stars, and studied first aid. One hundred and one years later, Girl Scouts are still doing that and much more!
