You were part of something Amazing; You were a Girl Scout

March is Girl Scout Month in honor of the original founding of Girl Scouting. On March 12, 1912 Juliette Gordon Low organized the first U.S. "Girl Guide" troop in Savannah, Georgia, with 18 members, which launched the movement that became Girl Scouts of the USA. Appropriately, March is also Women's History Month.
This March, we'd like to invite you to honor Juliette Gordon Low's founding of Girl Scouting by officially reconnecting.

Once a Girl Scout, Always a Girl Scout.

Alaska Girl Scouts' 100th Anniversary celebration of Girl Scouting in the USA begins this year at Girl Scouts of Alaska's Encampment, during the first weekend of June. Our theme for Encampment is Celebrating 100 Years of Girl Scouting - and to do that we need our alumnae to be part of it!

Mark your calendar for the evening of Thursday June 2 when we will host Alaska's first official Alumnae Reconnect Event. It will happen at the Palmer State Fairgrounds, in conjuction with Encampment. If you can't join us that night, don't worry - there will be more Reconnect events coming up over the next year as we celebrate the centennial of Girl Scouting. Register as an alumna, and we'll keep you in the loop.

No matter where you began, you're here now.
Register online at girlscoutsalaska.org/alumnae and celebrate 100 years of Girl Scouts.
