March 12, 2013
Girl Scouts throughout Connecticut and the country are celebrating the 101st anniversary of Girl Scouting on Tuesday, March 12. Since 1912, Girl Scouting has inspired millions of girls and women with the highest ideals of courage, confidence, and character. Today, more than 47,300 girls in Connecticut are discovering their path to leadership through Girl Scouts.
“Today, we recognize another year of accomplishments and successes in Girl Scouting,” said Mary Barneby, CEO, Girl Scouts of Connecticut. “For 101 years, Girl Scouting has been encouraging girls to develop to their fullest potential, instilling in them values of successful leaders. We continue to evolve as a movement, offering important programming for girls today such as anti-bullying workshops and healthy living activities, while continuing to offer the programs that have helped us thrive for this long: cookies, summer camp, and troop activities. We are proud to be a part of this very special day and will continue to work towards our mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character!”
Girl Scouts of Connecticut offers an exciting, enriching leadership experience for all girls through Girl Scout program, summer camp, series, events, and other activities. By helping girls discover themselves and their values, connect with others to build healthy relationships, and taking action to make the world a better place, we are developing a generation of women that will make the world a better place.
During the week of March 10-16, each Service Center throughout the state will be hosting special events for all girls to come and celebrate Girl Scout Week and learn more about Girl Scouting. Those Service Centers include:
