Girl Scout Troup 11205
Have you wondered where the Girl Souts started? Juliette "Daisy" Gordon Low assembled 18 girls from Savannah, Georgia, on March 12, 1912, for a local Girl Scout meeting. She believed that all girls should be given the opportunity to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually. With the goal of bringing girls out of isolated home environments and into community service and the open air, Girl Scouts hiked, played basketball, went on camping trips, learned how to tell time by the stars, and studied first aid.
Within a few years, Daisy's dream for a girl-centered organization was realized. Today, Girl Scouts of the USA has a membership of over 3.2 million girls and adults, a significant growth from its modest beginnings nearly a century ago. In fact, more than 59 million women in the U.S. today are Girl Scout alumnae.
The insignia/badges on a girl's uniform are a record of her adventures and accomplishments as a Girl Scout. My Pampered Pooch recently teamed up with Girl Scout Troup 11205 to assist them in learning more about how to care for animals. The girls enjoyed learning about bathing, drying, brushing and combing out mats, cleaing ears, and cutting nails. Each of the troop members earned a needed badge.
