Girls Scouts celebrate 100 years

The Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes Council held its centennial celebration at the Lambeau Field Atrium on Saturday, June 16, 2012. The event saw almost 3,000 visitors attend the event which showcased the history of the Girl Scout dating back to a time where girls could earn badges for milking cows, preserving food stuffs and cleaning clothes by hand.

"Girl Scouts is constantly changing because they have to keep up with the needs of the girls." said Karen Paul. "Today you throw clothes in the wash and push a button, but back then you had to know how to get the stains out."

Today the Girl Scout Association prides itself on building "girls of courage, confidence and character."

Girl Scouts, today, are no longer just about cookies, camping and crafts but building leaders of the future though community service, career building and character and moral development to become positive role models and future leaders.

The evolution of the Girl Scouts has come a long way from homemaking, nursing and camping. Girls today are now able to explore more areas in technology, engineering and scientific career paths.

Founder Juliette Gordon Low, founder, who was known for standing on her head and pioneering equal rights with women, would be proud of the progress of the modern day Girl Scout.
