As part of the Girl Scout family you most likely know that Girl Scouts turns 100 years old on March 12th! However, did you know that Girl Scout celebrations also occur during a week long period known as Girl Scout Week?
Girl Scout Week has been celebrated in March since 1954, and this year the celebration will run from Sunday, March 11th through Saturday, March 17th.
During this time, Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona will join Girl Scouts around the nation to make the world a better place and show the community how Girl Scouting helps create girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place!
Girl Scout Birthday, March 12
Girl Scout Birthday, March 12, commemorates the day in 1912 when Juliette Gordon Low officially registered the organization’s first 18 girl members in Savannah, Georgia.
Girl Scout Sunday and Girl Scout Sabbath
Girl Scout Sunday and Girl Scout Sabbath 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. This arrangement allows for our membership of diverse faiths to celebrate on their chosen day of worship.
The following materials have been made for Girl Scouts to use in their local communities
