I also enjoyed participating in opening the Alabama House of Representative session on April 5th by leading the pledge. I also enjoyed getting to meet the Speaker of the House, Senate Pro Temp, members of Honorary Girl Scout Troop 1912 (the year Girl Scouts was found in the U.S.) and members of the North Central and Southern Alabama Girl Scout Boards. After Susan and I opened with the pledge, Rep. Terri Collins, one of the members of Honorary Girl Scout Troop 1912, announced a proclamation recognizing the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts. She talked about the history and future of Girl Scouting and presented Susan and me with a certificate of appreciation for leading the pledge.
Afterward, we went upstairs for a cookie reception. An area was set up with cookies, milk and coffee. The area was also Girl Scout information, pictures of Girl Scouts from different time periods and freebies like pencils and fans with the Girl Scout 100th Anniversary emblem on them
A reporter from WSFA interviewed Susan, me and some Girl Scouts from North Central Alabama Council. He asked me about what Girl Scouts do, what it teaches us and how it can be used in the future. I didn't get to see the interview on T.V. but a couple people told my mom they saw it and we did a good job
