Celebrating 100 Years of Girl Scouting
Girl Scouts of Utah

  On March 12th 1912, Juliette Gordon Low assembled 18 girls from Savannah, Georgia for the first Girl Scout meeting.  On that same date, 100 years later on March 12th, 2012, Girl Scouts will celebrate a legacy of leadership of a millennium.

    Girl Scouts in Washington County, who are under the leadership of Jill Mustachia, the Service Unit Director for Washington County, are planning a week of exciting events to celebrate.   The events have been planned under the leadership of Cari Heizer of Gunlock, the event chairman for Washington County.  A few highlights of the celebration will be a Proclamation at St. George City Hall, Girl Scout Sabbath Interfaith Sunrise Service, a Birthday Party, and a showcase of 100 acts of service from troops and girls.  There are thirty troops in Washington County with hundreds of girls led by many leaders.
If you are interested in helping or joining Girl Scouts call Dawn Miner at 435-703-5344 or email dminer@gsutah.org

  Dixie Miller of Washington, a life term member of Girl Scouts has collected a large assortment of Girl Scout memorabilia, some of which will be on display at the St. George Art Museum from February 29 – March 29th and at the Washington County Courthouse main hall display area from March 1 - 15th.
  Mission:

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. 

  Our Promise to Girls
Girl Scouting gives every girl access to life-changing experiences that inspire her to do great things.
  Today, Girl Scouts is the largest girl-serving organization in the United States with 2.3 million girl members, grades K-12.

  In our troops we encourage girls to dream of things they want to do to make their life or the lives of those around them better and to see if they can find a way to do what is necessary to accomplish it.  We also earn badges, explore the outdoor world, "do a good turn daily", we try to 'be prepared to follow our promise and laws’.

  Studies have shown girls who are active in their religion and Girl Scouts show greater moral values in their teens and adult years than those who were only involved in one or the other and much greater than those who were not involved in either.

Girls have many opportunities to become outstanding leaders, and they then go on to make the world a better place because of skills they learned as Girl Scouts.

  We invite all girls and adults to join us in this life changing movement.  This is just another reason to visit your Art Museum, as we extend our reach into the community.
