Today Girls Scouts of America celebrated her 100th birthday. On March 12th, 1912 Juliette Gordon Low called her cousin Nina; two sentences began a revolutionizing movement. Juliette famously said to Nina, “Come right over! I’ve got something for the girls of Savannah (Georgia), and all of America, and all the world, and we’re going to start it tonight!” To commemorate Girl Scouts’ founder Juliette Low and the movement’s 100th anniversary, 8 sunset celebrations were held in San Diego County. Girl Scouts in Mission Bay, Santee, Poway, Oceanside, Coronado, La Jolla Shores, Fallbrook, and Imperial Beach gathered with their local service units and celebrated Girl Scouts while the sun went down.
At La Jolla Shores, there was a flag ceremony, a reenactment of the famous phone call, many sing-a-longs, a friendship circle, and the girls exchanged SWAPS (“Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere.”)
