HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GIRL SCOUTS!

CELEBRATE THE OCCASION WITH SOMETHING SWEET

Charlotte, N.C. (March 12, 2015) – Girls everywhere are commemorating the 103rd birthday of the Girl Scout organization today. The preeminent leadership development organization was officially created on this day in 1912 when Juliette Gordon Low registered the first 18 girl “troop” in Savannah, Georgia.

Local Girl Scouts from the Hornets’ Nest Council are celebrating the milestone with their favorite sweet treats – cookies. The young entrepreneurs will be outside local retailers until March 30 to sell cookies to shoppers.

The fundraiser is an opportunity for girls to learn five essential business skills – goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics – that will help shape them as future leaders.

Serving more than 22,000 girls and adults, the Girl Scout Hornets’ Nest Council operates in eight North Carolina and South Carolina counties including Anson, Cabarrus, Mecklenburg, Montgomery, Rowan, Stanly, Union and York.

  

“Our organization is thrilled to celebrate another incredible year of Girl Scouting,” says Angela Woods, CEO of Girl Scouts, Hornets’ Nest Council. “It is incredible to see an organization that still holds true to the same mission as when it began 103 years ago. We continue to focus on building girls’ courage, confidence and character.”

Stock up on your favorite Girl Scout cookie today including Samoas, Tagalongs, and new additions Rah-Rah Raisins and gluten-free Toffee-tastic. To locate a Girl Scout near you, click here.
