You look good, Girl Scouts.  Happy 100 Birthday – March 12

Founder Juliette Gordon Low organized the first Girl Scout Troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, GA. Girl Scouts of the USA was chartered by the U.S. Congress on March 16, 1950.

Today, there are 3.2 million Girl Scouts.

More than 50 million American women enjoyed Girl Scouting during their childhood—and that number continues to grow as Girl Scouts of the USA continues to inspire, challenge, and empower girls everywhere.

According to above data, roughly 25 million former Scouts have an ex-boo.  All together now:

I will do my best to be

Honest and fair,

Friendly and helpful,

Considerate and caring,

Courageous and strong, and

Responsible for what I say and do.

And to

Respect myself and others,

Respect authority,

Use resources wisely,

Make the world a better place, and 

Be a sister to every Sister Girl Scout.

The creed should apply to all of us in our daily lives– not just us former scouts.  I’m still a proud Brownie, sold my share of cookies and can still tie a knot.  I’m sure the following   divorced Scouts still have s’more memories yet to be made:

Martha Stewart

Mariah Carey

Carrie Fisher

Tipper Gore

Dorothy Hamill

Star Jones

Mary Tyler Moore

Cheryl Tiegs

Barbara Walters
