WHEREAS, March 12, 2012, marks the 100th Anniversary of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America, which began when Savannah, Georgia, native Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low gathered 18 girls to provide them opportunities to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually; and,

WHEREAS, Today, more than 50 million American women are Girl Scout alumnae, 3.3 million girls and adult volunteers are active members, and Girl Scouts is the largest member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. In the city of Seattle, there are 2,374 girls, 1,087 dedicated adult volunteers, and 205 lifetime members who are proud to a part of the Girl Scout tradition; and,

WHEREAS, The award winning Girl Scout Leadership Program helps girls discover themselves and their values, connect with others, and take action to make the world a better place; and,

WHEREAS, As part of the 100th Anniversary celebration, our community has over 4,000 girls and adults being challenged to live Forever Green by exploring their impact on the environment and learning ways to lessen their footprint; and,

WHEREAS, Girl Scouts is committed to ensuring that all girls can participate in Girl Scouts regardless of their financial circumstances and the Girl Scout program continues to evolve to address the changing societal challenges through many innovative programs.
