Girl Scout Week: March 10-16, 2013
On March 12, 1912, 18 girls first met as Girl Scouts in Savannah, Georgia. Girl Scouts of all ages celebrate by demonstrating leadership and commitment in ways that have a real impact in their communities. You can celebrate by throwing a party or by doing something that Juliette Gordon Low loved to do – like making the world better for girls!
Girl Scout Sunday and Girl Scout Sabbath
These special days give girls an opportunity to attend their place of worship and be recognized as a Girl Scout. If a place of worship is the group sponsor, girls may perform a service, such as greeting, ushering or doing a flag ceremony. These days can also be a time when girls explore other faiths and earn their My Promise My Faith Award.
Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois will provide church bulletins to be distributed, by request, for worship services held during Girl Scout Week. Complete the Church Bulletin Order Form by February 22.
