The first Girl Scout meeting in the United States was on March 12, 1912. To recognize this special event in Girl Scout history, the week including March 12 is known as Girl Scout week. The Saturday and Sunday of this week are known as Girl Scout Sabbath and Girl Scout Sunday. This week is an opportunity for girls to make a special effort to celebrate Girl Scouts.
Your troop can recognize scouting by asking your religious organization to place the Girl Scout bulletin insert on Girl Scout Sunday or Sabbath. This year Girl Scout Sunday is March 11 and Girl Scout Sabbath is March 17. The inserts are free, but supplies are limited, so put your order in quickly to ensure you have enough for your organization.
This year's insert (pictured right) features images by Troops at Thomas James and Oaklawn Housing Facilities in Mobile. The back of the insert has the Girl Scout Promise and Law, and GSSA contact information.
Order forms can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, faxed or mailed to either service center. The inserts can be put in service unit boxes for the service unit meetings in March or they can be picked up at the council.
