100 Anniversary Promise Circles! th


pproximately 10,000 girls, volunteers, alumnae and family members gathered at nearly 70 Promise Circle locations throughout our council on Monday, March 12, 2012. At exactly 19:12 military time (7:12 p.m.), everyone joined in circles to recite the Girl Scout Promise and Law and celebrate being a “sister to every Girl Scout� exactly 100 years after Juliette Gordon Low called together 18 girls in Savannah for the first meeting. Our Green Ribbon Campaign invited alumnae to reconnect with us, and nearly 50 sites hosted displays of historical uniforms, handbooks, badges, and pins that called forth memories and stories from women of all ages. Thank you to all the volunteers serving on the Promise Circle Subcommittee and the 100th Anniversary Committee for your dedication!

Our troop theme this year is friendship, and we just began a pen pal relationship with scouts from another school in our district. Some of the pen pals got to meet each other at the event, and all the girls were thrilled about that. Before we parted, we had a friendship squeeze with our new friends. Fun!” – Beth, via Facebook

Thank you!
