We had a great time in Montgomery and Mobile this past weekend! Hundreds of people and many troops of all age levels gathered to celebrate both Juliette Gordon Low's Birthday and the kick-off to our 100th year of Girl Scouting in the US.
The Birthday cruise was a beautiful, scenic tour of the Alabama Riverfront highlighted by 200 voices singing "Happy Birthday" to Juliette Low before devouring their cupcakes!
Girls earned badges, made crafts, played games, sang and danced their way through the morning. The event was hailed a success by all who attended. There were also fashion shows of uniforms from past decades of Girl Scouting. The girls attending (and the adults, too!) had a grand time.
Here's a photo of our Volunteer Historian, Gigi Baroco (sporting a replica1920's uniform) and models Kerri, wearing the 1955-62 Junior uniform, Elanne, modeling the 1946-48 Intermediate uniform, and Alena, showing us the 1962-73 Cadette uniform.

The staff and volunteers worked hard in the weeks leading up to the celebrations to provide safe, fun and educational events and we really appreciate their efforts.
