The 100th Anniversary of the Girl Scouts

March is Women’s History Month and in keeping with that theme let’s celebrate the 100th Birthday of the Girls Scouts organization.

On this day in 1912, Juliette Gordon Low registered the first 18 girls into the Girl Scouts in Savannah, Georgia.  Their mission of Girl Scouting would be to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who would make the world a better place. 

Today, there are over 3 million Girl Scouts in the United States serving their communities by promoting the issues effecting young women such as healthy media images, social and emotional well being and leadership opportunities for women.

And of course, there are the cookies…
Whether it’s Thin Mints, Samoas®, or, my favorite, Lemonades™ everyone in America knows the GS by their cookies.  (here’s where the drinking comes in)

Shake with ice, strain into lowball glass.

If you have a chance to watch the video from, please do,  it’s too funny.  My apologies to Girl Scouts everywhere.

Can’t find a supply of your favorite Girl Scout Cookies…no worries, there’s an app!
