February 8th has been declared national Girl Scout Cookie Day by the Girl Scouts of America. How terrific is that! A day dedicated to Girl Scout cookie eating! I was a part of the Girl Scouts for many years. I started as a Brownie and continued until I was a Brownie Leader. I was a proud scout and had a sash filled with badges that I worked hard to earn.The Girl Scouts were founded in 1912 by Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low. It all began when she gathered together a group of local girls with the desire to help them to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Her original goal was to bring girls out of isolated home environments and into community service. But she also provided them with experiences in hiking, athletics and camping trips where she taught them astronomy and first aid skills among other things. I encourage you to learn more about Daisy and The Girls Scouts at the Girls Scouts Of America website
Celebrate scouting with me and enjoy some yummy cookies too!
